...to journaling and home from Spain.
I did keep a journal while in Spain but I only cut & pasted emphemera of my days with the intention of working on text when I returned home. I regularly emailed family about daily events so I will rely on those emails for text for my Spain book.
Another fun plan is to make a small edition of an Abecedarium of the trip in accordion book form. I've done that before about a trip to Massachusetts and had a great time doing it. I relied on color copies for the edition & that is exactly what I will do this time. I plan on sewing in the images on the accordion pages.
These are the pages that I made this morning, my regular tried & true collage method. I did use a transparency on the Companions page. It was a perfect fit in both content & size. I must say, however, that we all traveled very lightly (not all like the baggage on the hand cart). I will never travel heavy again. It was bliss to have only one bag for 12 days! And since you asked: the greatest travel aids are a Kindle & plastic travel bags that squish down to nearly nothing. Same weight MORE space!
I am glad to be home. It is magical here too.
