Stranger Things: Arrival of The Little Black Book

Dear Reader, 

"All things must change to something new, to something strange." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

On the eve of my 21st birthday, I received a mysterious package containing an old leather bound journal from the will of a deceased estate in Portugal.  The journal belonging to my great grandfather, a man I barely knew; held entries that read like a tale mixing fantasy and reality.   

Wanting to make sense of the set of curious map coordinates contained within the pages, I would find myself mapping out a journey that would lead me around the world.  

I decide that working through my anxiety of facing the big wide world again would require a practical strategy, and a place to record my journey.  

I would create a journal not unlike my grandfathers; to live out dreams and wishes once held but never achieved.  The untold stories only ever held in my heart, would now be brought to life.  

This journal would be named The Little Black Book: The Untold.

Upon arriving at my first destination I would uncover a secret altogether more extraordinary.  And while that is a story to be told in full at the right time…for now I can let you in on a few snippets of information that may help you in filling in your Little Black Book.   

Let’s dream together and share our journeys; we may have a lot more in common than we realise… 

Till next time, 


Karmen Aurora
