Journals on the brain!

I LOVE norwegian sayings in English!
"Goodbye on the bathroom you old chocolate!" - In our defense, it rhymes in norwegian. ;-)

But that's not the point of this post, because I really have journals on the brain.
I can't think of anything else these days. I should revise for my exam, and I do...., occationally.
When I am off to Africa this summer, and to Canada for that matter, I want to take a real nice looking leather journal so I can write about what I experience. If there is one thing I have learned from all those years in school, it is that memory is forever fickle. ;-)
I also want the possibility of sticking a few photos in there, so it can't be one of those mini leather journals. AND, I am very picky about it, and want the perfect one, so I have scoured the internet and come up with some favourites.
I am really not a good writer or what not, so I think I will have more of a scrapbook approach.
Drawing a bit, jotting down some thoughts, important events (I have now touched a cheetah!), and so on.

- I think this one is gorgeous, but I'm gonna choose 
"bombshell" leather instead of this on the picture. 
Bombshell leather resembles the leather on the journal 
two down. And the quote will be one related to travel, 
or my initials.
