Book Review: When Wanderers Cease to Roam: A Traveler's Journal of Staying Put

When Wanderers Cease to Roam: A Traveler's Journal of Staying Put - 01


After traveling around the globe for two decades, Vivian Swift decided that it was time to stay put, in a small village on Long Island Sound.

In a sketchbook, she begins recording her new phase in life with writings and watercolour paintings. It's not a travel journal, but a staying-put journal. Her thoughts span across the four seasons she spent there, from January to December.
Through her writing, we learn about the place where she stays, her past, and also on appreciating little things in life.

You'll see drawings of cats, teacups, mud, snow, clothes, the town and nature. The book starts with winter and along the way you can feel the transition of the different seasons before ending in winter again.

This is a charming sketchbook, very different from the usual travel sketchbooks.

When Wanderers Cease to Roam: A Traveler's Journal of Staying Put is available at Amazon (US | CA | UK | DE | FR | IT | ES | JP | CN) and Book Depository
