I’ve been a bit shoddy of late keeping this site up to date (hey, that rhymes, lol) so here is the latest on Book 3 as posted by Abel Sarpe from Sao Paulo in October 2016. I wonder what other wonderful locations the book has travelled through since it was last seen in Hong Kong!

I’ve been wondering where one of my books would turn up next and now, thanks to YOU, I know it’s been to Australia and Brazil. I love your idea of everyone who writes in it meeting up one day. You never know, it just might happen. Happy Travels my friend! And happy travels to you too, Fernando Guiltieri, as you head back ‘down under’ – G’day mate!”

A Glimmer of Hope

Book 3 - #SendMyBook

Book 3 – #SendMyBook

These last few months, I’ve really been losing hope about this website and those feelings have increased over the last couple of weeks.

The back story: I left Book #3 in Amalfi, Italy in August 2014 with a lovely couple from New Zealand who were visiting with their daughter who lives in England. It’s almost a year later with no word of its whereabouts.

I began to question why I started this project/blog. Why would people think it was a cool idea to send a blank journal around the world for anyone to write in? Continue reading

I Wonder If There’s Chocolate In These Easter Eggs!

Well, it’s that time again. Time to go looking for my books. Book #1 was last seen in Taormina, Sicily, book #2 in Alaska and book #3 in Amalfi, Italy.

So, my trip is all booked for this summer and I’m soooooo excited, I can’t wait. Imagine if I actually found one of them. That would prove just how small a world we live in, wouldn’t it?

Any guesses as to where I might be going? Here’s a clue:Screen Shot 2015-03-18 at 9.58.31 PM

Book 3 – #SendMyBook heading out into the world. This one, unlike Books 1 and 2, will be hand-delivered by me and my daughter Shay and released into the wild somewhere along our travels through Italy.

Is it merely a coincidence that Book 1 was found in Rome by Luca back in 2012? Perhaps it’s still there and will show up serendipitously in a photo of Shay by the Trevi Fountain. How cool would that be?

So, you see, there’s a lot of pressure on Book 3 because I fear Book 2 has been dropped in a lake in BC….:(

Ciao for now!!

Bon Voyage, Again

Book Around The World

So, here I am, 10 months after the launch of Book#1, sending Book#2 out into the wide, blue yonder. I have hopes for this one, I feel more connected to it and that’s probably because it’s technically more advanced than the first one. Okay, so it is still just a book but this one has a little black and white maze in a box on the cover (also known as a QR Code) that, when scanned, will bring the user to this site. Continue reading

“I found your book where I work, in an hostal of Madrid. You had a very original idea. I will do everything possible to make your book travel as you desire. I will pass the book to someone who understands its role and doesn’t spoil it. I hope the book backs soon into your hands and you can enjoy its adventures.” Continue reading
