Artist Sketches His Backpacking Adventures, Making For The Most Gorgeous Travel Diary

These sketches will last a lifetime.

For many travelers, snapping photos on a phone or camera is a simple way to document our whereabouts and capture our favorite moments. 

But Maxwell Tilse, an Australian illustrator located in London, decided to sketch a comic diary of his recent travels backpacking through cities such as Budapest, Krakow, Teltsch, and more.

"On my current trip I've mostly done quick pencil sketches outside," Tilse explains on Bored Panda. "Then, I'll find a warm cozy place to finish the drawing with a hot meal and a cold beer."

Moreover, Tilse has been uploading his beautiful, unique drawings to Instagram with captions to share his stories with the world.

"An easy place to make new friends and catch up with old ones," he writes alongside an image from Prague.
