Holidays and travel are full of amazing experiences but, that’s only the half of it ~
Spending time with those memories (when that moment for nostalgia strikes) is like taking a marvellous mini-break…
IF you can remember them!
This blog offers tips and tricks for
*highlighting your holiday adventures*
- using Journey Jottings Map Journals if you’re travelling in and around Australia, or

Hello ~ I’m Linda Fairbairn
and here are My 3 best kept travel secrets.
If you love holiday travel (which is why you’re here – right?!) there’s also:
- Postcard updates from here in Australia featuring my take on Australian flora, fauna, city and landscape.
- Australia Photo Friday, viewpoints from my photo album.
- Travelling Tales by you, collated via our monthly themed travel stories on our Journey Jottings Facebook Page and which I post on this blog in the Facebook Travelling Tales section.

For more background info such as where I’ve travelled etc, here’s an interview
“To a man with imagination, a map is a window to adventure.”
To me, a map is a window to distant horizons.
I love horizons.
- They beckon from across landscapes that rise and fall across the world.
I love landscape.
- Hewn by climate over eons of time, this global environmental sculpture appears from afar like a crazy patchwork of regional textures and tones sewn together by waterways and dry creek beds; yet close up, the transgression from one locale to another feels more seamless as the vegetation transpires from lush verdant greens to dry spiky ochres.
I love maps ~
- Which via lines and symbols snapshot entire landscapes so succinctly onto a single 2D sheet.
Unfolding a map of a previously visited area I’m immediately drawn back to places and times past.
And as fingers fall upon familiar place-names, memories of valley vistas and towering ranges are vividly brought back to life.
Most people think of maps as being solely navigational, but for me:
maps evoke nostalgia… for the past
and flaunt far away places that taunt… for the future
This blog is about all of these loves ~
- heading over horizons on holiday,
- observing vignettes of landscape adorned with flora and camouflaged fauna and…
- maps for highlighting your holiday adventures ~
