Keep it Simple

You don’t have to be a professional artist or scrap-booker to create a beautiful travel journal. You can add Polaroids, postcards, other mementos, and souvenirs from your trip to your journal. Including little notes, doodles, embellishments, and details to finish off each page. Anything- such as postcards, plane and train tickets, luggage tags, city maps, museum tickets, or food and candy wrappers, be creative!

Make a Cover Page

Creating a cover page for your destination before take off will set the tone for your journal and trip! It will also encourage you to commit to journaling the rest of your travels.

Choose a theme or image inspired by your destinations to adorn your page. You could also attach your plane ticket here (you know, after boarding 😛 ) if you aren’t one for drawing or doodling.

Map It Out

Creating a map of your destination is a fun way to document your travels and get to know your destination. Include places you plan on visiting, important landmarks and other interesting facts like national holidays, flags, flowers, birds etc.

Create A Packing List

Illustrate or list out your packing list to keep yourself organized, prepared and inspired! Not only will this help you keep track of what you take, but help you in planning outfits and in packing less too!

Illustrate Funny Faux-Pas

Be it abroad or domestically, when traveling to a new place there will be ‘mishaps’. At the time, (sometimes) awful- but looking back, often funny! Record these moments in your Travel Journal now, and laugh about it later!
