A travel journal can be a great tool to help plan your next trip or simply reminisce. You can create a travel journal for a trip you've already taken, or a trip you're planning to take in the future. You can also use it to brainstorm and gather inspiration for your dream vacation. 🛩
What you add to your journal is entirely up to you. You can get creative and create a separate journal for each holiday or just pick a few photos and record all your adventures in one journal.
Photos printed, journal ready? Before you start creating, plan everything carefully. Lay out your photos in an order that follows your travel story. Check out Pinterest, Instagram or photos in this article to gather inspiration for what your travel journal should look like. 💡🎨
Now you can start writing. When writing a travel journal, the most important thing to focus on is the story of your trip. If your trip was longer, try dividing the story into several chapters like a book. You can write about what you did at each place you went, where you went, what you ate, who you met, and any fun experiences along the way. Take notes as you go to make keeping a journal as easy as possible. 📝 Fill the pages with matching photos, 📸 souvenirs, and embellish with stickers or drawings. 🎨
You can keep the completed journal or give it as a gift to someone who was with you. A travel journal makes a lovely gift for anniversaries, birthdays, and even Christmas.
Creating a travel journal is a fun and beautiful way to preserve memories. So grab a scrapbook, some photos, and a pen, put on your favorite music, and get creating!
