Lately, I have found myself interested in travel journals. I have a few of them from family members who have passed away, and as I read them, I find it fascinating to glean their perspectives and how places, fashion, vernacular, and travel itself has changed.
Some keep a journal with the idea of publishing upon return. The Innocents Abroad is such an example, and while it was a fun read, it was written with the audience in mind. This, to me, is less interesting than those written from the point of view of simply remembering the trip, the highs, the lows, the frustrations, the experience. Sometimes these make it into print. Are there any that you discovered and wish to recommend? Do you keep a travel journal yourself?
