Notes from my Travel Journal

I take notes when I travel.  I try to not only capture an experience in my memories but with photographs and the collection of excess ticket stubs, receipts, maps and mementos.  I pile them all into  A5 journals along with my hastily written field notes after a day of exploration.  Recently I revisited some of these journal pages and I happily share some of them with you.

Why not share some of your own travel journal pages?

  1. This is brilliant! You know, I have tried but somehow ended up starting with one notebook and misplacing it or it got left behind with another suitcase. Then I started a second one and same thing happened. I gave up. I really admire your ability to journal and keep little mementos. I’m sure revisiting them brings you a lot of joy!

    1. Thanks! Somehow I’ve managed to keep up with my journal notes…on the last few days I usually *fail* and just jumble in everything together. It actually started when I wanted to keep track of my money while traveling…and I ended up with some nice little mementos and notes 🙂 I love paging through them when I long to travel.

  2. OMG..this is so refreshing..to see things written with an actual pen and on paper!! I miss those days when all I had were scrap books and real albums. So well done, forbeing able to maintain these even whilst capturing your memories on this blog.

  3. I love that you’ve shared this! I also always travel with a journal, but I’ve found less and less I’m keeping tickets and brochures and the like… I need to start doing that again, looking at yours it makes me nostalgic!

  4. Love the idea of keeping a travel journal and ticket stubs etc and used to be quite good at doing this – it’s actually one of the reason I like blogging about travel too – kind of like a modern day journal we ca look at for years to come!

    This is cool to do, I did this when I got the liberty to travel to the UAE was fun was actually my boyfriend’s suggestion so I can cherish even more than pics etc. So I will totally do it again on my next travels abroad.
