        Comments about SCRATCH TRAVEL JOURNAL:

        The concept of this journal is great but the overall package was mediocre.

        The scratch maps are really cool and I am looking forward to using them.

        However the journal itself is lacking. The majority of the pages seem to be for planning, itinerary, packing lists. Then to boot there are only a handful of actual journal pages and they are build so that each page is supposed to be for a full day. Which might work if you are taking a 1 week trip but thats about it.

        The 'translator' only has 3 languages.

        The overall package size is rather bulky and not suitable for an extended trip.

        This might be good for a child going on a trip but nothing more serious.

            I purchased this for my 14 year old grandson who will be touring Europe in June 2015 on an Ambassadorship. He thought it was "cool gramma". He can start the planning phase now and continue straight through to the end of the trip. Being able to journal and the scratch off maps all in one place will help simplify the consolidation of his final product for what we know will be a sure "A".

                    I gave this to my friend who is a HUGE world traveler. It was something she may not have bought for herself but it was certainly something that has become her absolute favorite gift. She caught it up and scratched all the places she has been and she told me that it was the most rewarding and exciting thing she's done in a long time. She can't wait to travel again in March and then come home and add to it.

                      The scratch off maps are one of my favorite features because they are fun a way of QUICKLY keeping track of where I've been. I also like the travel planner it comes with. The outside design of the journal is perfect because it looks just simple and practical.

                      The only really disappointing feature was that the scratch maps of the U.S. and Canada did not have state/province outlines. Would be much easier to use with those.
