Our Story

We’re travellers.

We’ve traversed the world overland from Australia though south-east Asia, across the middle east, though Europe to England and circumnavigated Australia on the ‘big lap’ .

We founded Journey Jottings in 2004 when bored of not being able to show and share our travels visually Linda combined a hand drawn pictorial map with a journal and published the first Australia Map Journal.

We’re based on an island in the Bay off Brisbane in Queensland, Australia.

This is the view from our office.

To reduce our carbon footprint we cycle to the Post Office to get orders off on the first leg of their journey to our 500 retailers across Australia.

Packages are piled up in a trailer on the back of our bike.

Good for our health… but great for the well-being of the environment.
