Journey Jottings Testimonials

“I was recently on holiday in NT and came across your wonderful maps of the red centre – snapped up a few to fill in to send to my dad and sister back in England and kept one for myself as a diary/souvenir. My family were thrilled with them as it gave them a visual sense of where I’d been and what I’d done and was far more expressive than a postcard!”
Emma, Tasmania

“We are currently on our way to Port Hedland, WA.
We really love the map and it seems to cover all the places we are travelling to.
We have already completed 2 others [on other trips] and this is our 3rd”

Jan Robertson, Australia


Map Journal of Australia

Hannah’s year long adventure in Australia recorded for posterity – shown here with 6 weeks to go! Note how she has cleverly printed place names in different colours and sizes on another piece of paper, which she then adhered to the jotting box so they stand out and are easy to find in among her write ups – And she recorded all the places of interest visited in Tasmania by listing them down the outside edge of the bottom right hand box – I love this… and what a trip!


“Unique way to record travels – we bought the 3-pack of maps to post to our niece and nephews … with a record of our driving route and what we did and saw along the way (and stuck photos to it as well). Our youngest nephew then took his copy to ‘show and tell’ at school to share with his class. 

I referred the maps to my sister-in-law for my nephews to use to record their first real family holiday on (they drove from Brisbane to Winton to see the dinosaurs)”
Tania Messervy, Australia

Lesley created this wonderful Journal Map of her travels around Australia, which her husband framed with stunning ropework – Lesley said:
“We bought several Mail-It Maps to send home in lieu of postcards during our Big Trip. I recently found our last remaining one and decided to make a more permanent record of our wonderful journey. They are such a delightful record of your journeys around Oz!”

Lesley Wyatt, Bedfordshire UK.


“It’s a nice compact memento of travel undertaken, which can be added to when other trips are taken”

“I loved the post-it approach to the map, the design, the colours and the uncoated paper.
If you love paper and art, buy ten, send them to your friends and family. They’re little pockets of magic.

Kerry Mulgrew, Australia 

“I have recently finished travelling Australia and I transcribed all my travelling adventures on your postcard map. I absolutely love it and it’s a treasure that I will love forever so thank you so much for creating such a beautiful piece of artwork.”
Mischa, UK

Extracts from Nina’s Map Journal and Notebook during her 1 month trip travelling Australia

“Beautiful drawings, handy format, just enough space for everything.

Don’t think, just buy! You’ll have the best travel diary experience of your life :)”
Nina Klancnik, Slovenia 


“I live in Canada and have just returned from a month’s trip to Australia.
In August, when we were visiting the Red Centre, I saw your Australia Map Journal posted on a shop wall. The map was obviously frequently read because it had developed a well-fingered “we are here” spot.

As a travelling, journalling map lover… the Map Journal has been a great pleasure to read and use, with its lovely illustrations and lettering, the fine paper that takes a pen so well, and the protective wallet to keep it safe in my backpack.

Now it is the first thing I turn to when I want to recall and share my trip memories.
Thank you for sharing your creativity and love of maps.”
Debra Arnison-Sutton, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
