Kaffee und Kuchen’s first giveaway!
My good friend Jackie is a fellow travel enthusiast who plans the most adventurous, original and fun-filled trips to places I only dream about. When we first met in 2010, Jackie captivated me with stories of her memorable summer spent camping and trekking around northern British Columbia and Haida Gwaii (an archipelago on the North Coast of British Columbia, Canada). Media-saavy Jackie (coined as the ‘e-coach’ amongst our group of friends) loves all things digital (photography, e-Books, blogging, you name it). Despite her e-affinity, she prefers to record her travel experiences the old fashioned way with pen and paper, ideally in a travel journal.
In preparation for her 3-week long round the country adventure to Iceland this past summer, Jackie searched for a journal with planning pages that would help her organize her trip, as well as specific pages dedicated to packing lists, accommodations, travel itineraries and more. When she couldn’t find the type of journal she wanted, she decided to make one herself – she’s pretty resourceful like that! She hand-crafted her own travel journal complete with customized fabric, satin ribbon bookmark and elastic band closure.
After receiving tons of compliments and requests from friends for their own one-of-a-kind hand-made journals, Jackie decided to turn her craft into a business. Jackie now creates custom-order travel journals through her Etsy shop My Adventure Journal.
Jackie has generously offered to give away 4 Adventure Travel Journals to Kaffee und Kuchen readers!
Here’s a description of her European Travel Journal:
