True to his word, @fe_gaultieri from Australia gave #sendmybook3 to a wonderful couple who were embarking on a world trip.

It’s just my little pet project but people all over the world are getting caught up in it. They share a little bit of themselves on each page and treat the book with the care I could only have imagined ~ #grateful
When I sent the first of these 3 journals out into the world more than 5 years ago, I seriously doubted that I would get any of them back, and that was okay, or at least I thought it was at the time. Continue reading →
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!”
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 →
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….:(
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 →
