The Adventure Journal is such a treat for anyone like myself, who is fascinated by both travel and the adventures inevitably encountered along the way. Similar to the Scratch Map® Original Map* featured earlier this month on A Glass Of Ice, 8 regional scratch-off map versions are included in this set, along with 300 unusual bucket list suggestions ready to be perused and crossed off in the accompanying journal! The booklet boasts 68 pages worth of experiences to enjoy (and in some cases, challenge yourself with) across the globe. Then once completed, the copper foil maps can be altered using an eraser to showcase where you've been and which of the 'must do's' you've experienced - genius! It's pretty much the perfect Christmas gift idea!
The card folder is such a brilliant way of both presenting and storing the journal and maps; I even noticed the card had a sort of 'travel' smell to it - is that a thing? It should be a thing. Seriously though, this Adventure Journal by Luckies of London has well and truly got my mind working overtime. Flicking through the pages upon pages of interesting experiences has reminded me just how much more of the world I've yet to see, experience and then (of course) share on A Glass Of Ice. Out of the 300 bucket list 'must do' activities provided in the Adventure Journal, I have a handful of favourites:
Australasia: Great Barrier Reef - Queensland, Australia
Eastern Eurasia: Spot a Snow Leopard - Ladakh Region, India
Eastern Eurasia: Mount Fuji - Chubu Region, Japan
Europe: Catacombs - Paris, France
Europe: Northern Lights - Tromso, Norway
North America: Banff National Park - Banff, Alberta, Canada
South America: Carnival - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
To say I'm barely 'scratching the surface' (wink wink) with my selections above would probably be the understatement of the century - it's the ultimate bucket list!
Before I love and leave you, I have to confess to something. I learnt a lesson today - curiosity really does kill the cat. I was super keen to see what happened when you erased parts of the map, got carried away watching the array of colours reveal themselves and swiped straight over one or two places I've never even visited before. So, there's only one thing for it - get travelling! Or, you know, live vicariously through this Adventure Journal for a little while longer as I continue revisiting places in Europe, simultaneously wondering why I haven't yet been snorkelling in Venezuela...
