Travel journal

This summer I made a travel journal for the first time. Although I love taking photos, this year I feltĀ more inspired to draw and write about our adventures. It was a good way to take a moment for myself, to digest the different stages of our journey and to document what we were doing. It also provided a fun way to connect with people and start discussions. Here is a (photographic) summary of my journalling ;-) 20150809_192828 Scan 3 I drew flowers in a hotel garden… 20150810_111817 Scan 4 …copied Buddist paintings in a small monastery from the 11th century 20150811_112213 Scan 6 copy 20150811_112336 …sketched the portrait of a friendly monk agreedĀ in another buddhist monastery IMG_3403 Scan 13 …drew our cook in action after a long day of trekking, in the warmth of the kitchen tent 20150823_120249 Scan 15 …and made some sketches on relaxing days after we left the mountains behind.   And these are some of the other pages, some done on location, others “free-style”, after the events represented took place:

(The mule is one of my favourites! It seemed totally stoned, and stayed in the same place for a long time, which even allowed me to colour him.)
