I recently started writing in my new journal, which was one of my Christmas presents (this journal was given to me by my sister-in-law). Paperblanks might not be one of my all time favourite brands of notebook to journal in, but it does the job and they're really beautiful. This particular notebook reminds me of something out of the Middle East. I've travelled to the Middle East when I was in my early twenties. I flew Egypt Air several times as they had the cheapest flights to Europe from both South Africa and Uganda. I've also been to Israel and West Bank on tourist trips, and have many fond memories of my time in the Holy Land. One day, God willing, I'll go back there.
