Before I went away, I made a cover for my travel journal - My Trip. Turned out that one journal wasn't enough and I had to rush off to the nearest WH Smith and buy another one!
Every day I filled in at least one page on the day's events. I used travel brochures and maps as sources for collage and added buttons, ribbons, tapes, ric-rac and anything else I could find for decoration.
Along with the journal I took with me some basic art supplies like glue, scissors, stapler and colouring pencils. I also purchased ribbons and buttons on my travels.
Before I left, the lovely Caroline forwarded a pin from Pinterest which suggested that while on a trip, send yourself a postcard every day. You can record what you did for the day and it gives a good basis for a travel journal. I really thought that was a good idea - so almost every day (I only missed about 2 days) I bought a postcard from a place we were visiting; wrote about something we did that day; and then posted it back to myself.
It was wonderful to arrive home on Monday to find a pile of postcards waiting for me. Better still, it was nice to receive a couple more today! The fact that they are stamped and postmarked from UK makes it even better.
I'm now going to put them into my travel journal(s).
Until next time
