This journal offers the reader the perfect journal for recording their experiences while away from home, really noticing things they encounter and the places they see. You can draw a map of your destination, sketch a famous landmark, and invent your own travel game. There are little tidbits of information about the history of travel and different famous places around the world.

I loved the colorful pages full of fun activities and journal prompts! Doing these activities is really relaxing and thoughtful. It really forces you to consider a different perspective and see things in a fresh way. I really liked all the cool illustrations and bits of history.

Take Me Home would be the perfect gift for a child in quarantine! Take Me on Vacation would be the perfect gift for a kid going on vacation, and would encourage some quiet and reflective moments during the trip.
