What is a Travel Journal and Why Would You Want to Keep One?

A travel journal is a written record of a person's experiences, observations, and memories while exploring new places.

People keep travel journals to capture the essence of their journeys, document their adventures, and create a personal keepsake that allows them to relive their travels and share their stories with others.

Some pages you might include:

  • Places you want to travel
  • A daily diary of a specific trip
  • Things I Learned
  • Places for Photos and other keepsakes

Some prompts that might be in a travel journal:

  • Describe the most memorable moment today.
  • Capture the local flavors you experienced.
  • Reflect on a cultural difference you observed.
  • Share an unexpected discovery on your journey.
  • Document your feelings at a significant landmark.
