The most intense day hitchhiking Scotland

Hitchhiking. I always wanted to try it. Well I did it couple of times when there wasn´t any other option get to the place but those were just short distances. This time it was completely different. We filled our backpacks to be ready camping on the way, I wrote signs for directions on the cardboards and we hit the road ready to hitchhike Scotland.

There was just a tiny problem.

It was Saturday and it was raining. Raining all day.

We eneded up under the bridge realizing hitchhiking in the rain is just hard.

Amarican journal

IMG_2439Since I was little I loved writing journals, making crafts or presents for my friends and family. I loved to capture memories by camera or in writing word. As older I get as more difficult I find to find time for those thigs. I had lately couple of months, when I wasn´t working much so I needed somehow keep myself busy. Last year I went on a road trip to west coast of USA with my friends. We flew to Seattle hired car and went down the coast to LA. We didn´t plan the trip and were deciding 24 hours before where to stay calculating how long will take to get there. I have amazing memories and since then other than road trip I am not doing haha. I might make some travel memories here as well but this article is about journaling.

I got great present for Christmas from my friend, American travel journal. I promised myself I need to fill it up with memories, but took me months until I got there. Firstly it was difficult to think about all experiences we have had as it was very intense and then I didn´t have time. But finally I got there and I have started. I did write my journal on the trip and draw couple of pictures so I rewrited words to my American journal and added photos and drawing. I haven´t finished yet, but here is small taste of the idea of´capture my memories in travel artist journal´…
