Whether you have heard about them or not, you can participate in the one that SandbookNet is organizing.The idea behind the Traveling Notebook is that you will receive a notebook in the post from someone (either the Sandbook.Net team or another player in the game) and you will have to:
1) Decorate couple of pages – you can either tell us something about your culture, country, customs or even your lifestyle, share inspirational thoughts or anything at all that you find worth sharing. You can use whatever your heart desires to decorate the pages – clippings, deco tape, ribbons, postcards, photos, glitter, etc.
2) Take a photo of your entry and send it to us at raiasandbook(at)gmail(dot)com so that we can keep track where the notebook is and if you have completed the first task.
3) Send it to the next person who has signed to join the game.
Once all the people have signed, the notebook will be returned to us and we’d make photos and upload them in our Traveling Notebook Section. We’d have them in picture formats and also available in pdf format so you can look through the whole notebook once it is complete.
To sign up for the “real” Traveling Notebook – you have to email us at raiasandbook(at)gmail(dot)com and send us your full name, snail mail address and of course an email address that you would like us to use to keep you updated about the traveling notebooks. Please, mention “real traveling notebook” as your subject line, so we can sign you up for the current Traveling Notebook Round (round 2). When a 10-15 people group is established we will email you with the details for the route and the expected time when you are going to receive the Traveling Notebook.
Virtual Traveling Notebook (Traveling Sheets)
We realize that the project of the “Real” Traveling Notebook is very ambitious and that it might face certain difficulties in terms of getting lost in the mail or someone breaking off the chain of the Traveling Notebook. Also progressively the decorated Traveling Notebook will get heavier and it might present unexpected postal fees/costs for the people later on in the list, so that’s why we decided to come up with an alternative, called the Virtual Traveling Notebook. For this project you will need to:
Decorate any number of A5 sized sheets of paper (that is 6 x 9 inches). Again you can present your country, lifestyle, customs, or any message you want to pass along and send them to our SandbookNet’s postal address. As soon as we receive the decorated sheets, we will make photos of them and then tag them with your name and country (and email if you choose so) and finally upload them on our website so anyone can view them. Also when we have more sheets together, we will be making “virtual notebooks” (by combining the sheets that we have received) and making them into pdf files that you will be able to download.
