The Traveling Journal of Travel Tips

This is a journal is intended to become a forum for travelers on BookMooch to share tips, the dos and don’ts, about places they have traveled. Share your tips about travel arrangements, hotel accommodations, food, museums, attractions, must-sees and places to avoid. Anything at all! The destination can be near, your hometown, or far. Feel free to leave one tip or to add multiple tips about multiple places.

You can even pose questions about certain places for future journalists to answer. I will scan the pages of this journal when it is completed and post them on the internet for those interested.

*Although not required, photos are always fun.*

Please be respectful of the two week time limit and other entries (do not alter or cover them).


What a Long Strange Trip It’s Been

This is a Bookmooch traveling journal. It is a travel journal published by Ulysses Travel Guides that I picked up at a local used book sale.

The theme for this journal revolves around a story line that I present in the opening entry. The basic idea is this: I win a fictional vacation on a weird game show and embark on a surreal and strange adventure. At the end of this trip I wind up, as all the ‘winners’ of the game show do in a McDonald’s in Hamelin Germany for “debriefing, group therapy and beer.” This is where my fictional character hands off the journal for the next participant to write how their “strange trip” went.

By contributing to this journal you give permission for me to reprint your story, (crediting you as the author) for non-commercial purposes, though you retain ownership of your own story. If there is sufficient interest I might scan or reprint the story for all to read. Of course, if everyone submits their story to the Bookcrossing online journal, I may not need to do this.


This journal was mooched by Jefferson USA:IL who then closed his account.
