Travel Diaries: Southeast Asia

October 2, 2014 Filed Under: Travel Journal, Worldly Whereabouts 10 Comments

I’ve developed a habit to write about my travel experiences every time I’m in transit – and my month-long backpacking trip last July across Southeast Asia was no exception.

Tricie & I spent most of our down time at cafes and I’d use that time to draw, mostly, or write about our daily adventures. And apparently, I found it a good way to not just keep memories but also a way to destress (yup, drawing destresses me too) and mindlessly put my thoughts into paper.

Soooo here are snippets of what’s inside my Life in Transit travel journal. :)

I’ve posted this on Behance as well – hope you can check it out and follow me!

Oh and before I end this post: Life in Transit is going to launch on the 29th! So do check back here for the link to the e-book. :)

    Congrats on your new site, Abbey! Lovely! Also, so in love with your travel journal–maybe you should consider selling it as a travel zine? I’d totally buy one hehe. :) Wish mine was as neat and comprehensive as yours!

    Hi Abbey! Saw you featured on Travel Now. I agree with Drea – publish your travel journal. It’ll serve as a handy travel guide for us aspiring travelers, and we’ll get to appreciate your lovely work of art too! :) By the way, I’d like to ask about your budget for the entire 30-day trip across Southeast Asia. I’ve long been wanting to do it.. but have no idea how much it’ll cost.

    I really love what you do on your travels. I’ve been trying to do the same but it’s hard to find the down time to do so. But I was wondering what type of pens do you use to get that pen effect?

    Hi Aaron, you can always make time. :) Thanks for appreciating my work! I just used Fineliner / Drawing pens here and thickened some parts. But I believe you can now get brush pens to do that for you.
