As soon as the book comes back to me I will scan all the entries and put them up on a website so everybody can see the whole thing.
Finally I had time to prepare the journal and to do my own entry.
Now it is time to let it begin its journey. As soon as I have the first address, I will send it off.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Finally the journal is on its way to eatsletters as the first stop on a hopefully long and successful journey!
sorry for the delay.
The book must have arrived a while ago (I was on a one month business trip and just got home)
It looks really pretty and it is a splendid idea!
Only sad that I am one of the beginning entries, I am so curious what others are writing...
OK, off it goes to the next person!
This really lovely decorated journal arrived today! Thanks eatsletters for sending it to me!
I will have a read of what has already been written and start adding my own journal this week. Luckily this has arrived at Easter and I have enough free time to get the done and send it off again asap!
Thank you samulli for organising this! It looks like it will be fun :)
I thought I would have lots of time over the Easter holiday to work on this but my time was taken up with lots of other things. However I have written in the journal and before work and other things start taking over my life again I will post this to the next person.
I hope all of you can read my horrible handwriting. I don't have to write much anymore (usually typing) so my hands are quite sure how pens work anymore :) I feel sad that I didn't have any photos to add but maybe someone will be visiting Vienna some day and we can meet for a coffee :)
I have the address for the next person so the book will be in the post today! Thanks again Samulli for organising this and Eatsletters for sending it on to me!
Thanks Amberkatze, the journal arrived safely! It looks lovely, what a shame that I'm so early in line... I'm off to Italy this Thursday, so I'll try and write about my coffee/cafe experiences there as well as in my hometown in the Netherlands.
I loved this journal! Reading the entries by the previous contributors was a lot of fun and contributing myself really was a pleasure. I spent a lovely lunch time pondering and writing about coffee. It had been a while since the last time I wrote something other than a quick email, and I really enjoyed it. The journal is starting to look really nice too!
I'm sending it out to Kaleidoblikk tomorrow, have fun with it! And thanks for the great journal idea samulli! (By the way, Amberkatze, your handwriting is lovely and perfectly readable...)
Edit: I had a bit of a delay, but the journal went on its way today.
Nice to find this book in the post today! Loved to read what you/the others have written!! I surely look foreward to add my "stuff"!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Sent to TheWhiteLion today!
Love to join "these journals"!
Have fun! c,' )
Received the journal 2 days ago. It looks really interesting, and I'm looking forward to reading the entries and contributing to it myself.
Just so everybody is up-to-date:
I just got a message from TheWhiteLion saying that he/she needs some more time to finish the journal entry, because he/she is studying for some exams, which should be finished within the next few weeks. Good luck for that!
Finally managed to make some time to put down my entry in the journal. It was really interesting reading about other people's experiences. Thank you for your patience and thank you for letting me participate in this diary ring, Samulli
- I think you are going to be pleasantly surprised with the results of this journal ring!
Mailed today to loribee
Arrived safely today. I am so looking forward to both reading the contributions so far and adding my own.
In the mail to Drusillamac in Glasgow. I really enjoyed taking part in this project!
Apologies to everyone. I received this journal on Wednesday and my scatty memory meant I forgot to journal it. It looks fab and I caught my dad having a nosey through it as well.
Thanks to lorribee and samulli for sharing :-)
First of all, apologies for hanging onto this journal for so long. After reading (and smelling!) some of the fantastic entries, I feel I am going to have to pass this on without contributing. At the moment I cannot add a contribution that reflects the high standard that has been set by the other writers. Anything I added to this journal would not reflect that.
I have an address for lightwavz and this journal will be shipped via airmail tomorrow.
Hooray! This one was waiting for me after my short vacation! I've been collecting things to put in it and should be sending it out again in a week or so! I'll report back then...
lightwavz, could you please contact me when you read this? I have been trying to get hold of you by PM and in the forum to find out what became of this journal, but to no avail. Please get in touch with me!
