There are lots of journals and planners out there. There are gratitude journals, diaries, planners and calendars, goal setting journals, bullet journals, blank notebooks...I could go on and on. A travel journal, much like the journals listed, is a place where you can keep notes, photos, and even souvenirs like stickers or ticket stubs. When used thoughtfully, it can pose not just as a way to record your best moments when you travel but can be an incredible resource to use when planning future trips or to offer recommendations to friends and family on destinations and attractions you've enjoyed.
The best part about a travel journal is that you get to document the activities and excursions you have spent so much on your disposable income. And unlike a standard journal, it is not something that you have to keep up with every day. You only pull it out when you travel or have new experiences worth remembering. Over time as you collect memories, you build out this incredible time capsule and living heirloom of your best moments that grows old with you.
