I have been asked by a couple people lately what I use for my journaling as I tend to stick things inside; I am an obsessive collector of things, especially when traveling. So here is a little travel or home journaling kit for an idea of what I use at home and pack when I travel.
I know some people are strictly journal writers and not pasters, painters, drawers, list makers, etc. I do a little of all of it and none of it very well but how cool is it a year later to look back at what you did in your life whether you were at home or abroad. Try it for a week or two and see if you can bring new life into your journaling. Most of all have fun, there are no rules, no judgement and you are probably the only person that will see it, so be easy on yourself.
I made this travel journal a little while back (months before I bought my ticket to Paris). I think I have figured out the secret recipe for travel (at least for me); make the journal and the trip will come. Ha ha!
Anyway, I found this book a couple years ago and wanted to keep it for myself as I knew one day I would make it to the City of Light and sure enough I am on my way soon. I can't wait to write my travel experiences in it, try to draw what I see, and just do some long cafe sitting while writing and watching the world go by.
