I’ve recently been having a think about how I’d like to document our time away. I’ve got the blog here of course, but I’d also like to have a physical journal or document that I can use to collect tickets and documents. It’ll also come in handy when we’re off the beaten track and we don’t have an internet connection.
At the same time, I don’t want to feel overwhelmed by keeping up with writing, and I don’t want to miss anything whilst I’m away.
I’ve been on pinterest looking for ideas. (You can follow my personal account here if you like. :))
I’ve always loved the idea of a moleskine travel journal. Look at these beauties!
I haven’t done a lot of drawing since art A level, but one of my 25 new things is to get drawing again.
Love this moleskine too:

So yes, we’ve established I like moleskine journals. (BTW have you ever pinterest searched “moleskine journal” ? Prepare to fall into a rabbit hole of inspiration/procrastination.
Of course there are many other notepad options. But what about this? :
The idea here is to buy postcards along the way of your trip and write what you did that day on the back: restaurants, funny stories, cool attractions. When you’re home you can hole punch them and attach to binder ring.
This is a nice way of keeping memories, but I worry that I’d forget and then feel guilty. Also, I’d prefer to use my own photographs.
Oh the possibilities are endless. Time to buy a moleskine and get doodling!
