My sister is traveling to Europe this summer with her family in tow. Three kids aged 8 - 18 will be experiencing new cultures for the first time and she wants them to remember it. What better way that journaling? Here are five great travel journal ideas for your next vacation...and they aren't just for kids.
The Family Adventure Journal (Coming Soon!) - Chronicle makes books worth waiting for. So if you aren't traveling until later this year, check out this gorgeous notebook when it's released in March. With prompts, pockets and lots of things to do as a family, this little journal is well-worth packing.
Moleskine Voyageur Hard Cover Notebook ($20) - Moleskine could be considered the king of notebooks with beautiful leather-covered, hardback books. This purpose-made travel notebook is pocket-sized and more focused on planning the perfect trip but with plenty of pages for jotting down your favorite spots.
Rifle Paper Co. Passport Pocket Notebooks ($10 for 2 notebooks) - I can't pass up Rifle note cards as they are lovely quality and always beautiful designs. With these simple and inexpensive notebooks, you can't go wrong if all you need is some blank sheets to jot down your thoughts.
Momento (Free) - Techies rejoice, there's a journal app for you too. Designed as a daily diary, it can easily be used when traveling. Automatically save photos with comments, check-in at top places and save a list of your favorite things right on your phone. App available for free from the iTunes App Store.
When my family and I travel, I buy a postcard. During our trip, I fill it out with all the things we did, interesting food we ate or special memories. Then I post it back home and we have a lovely memento to save from every place we visit.
Happy Travels and Happy Journaling!
