My Travel Journal – Australia

I am so in love with my travel journal! Is that weird? I love to touch it, cuddle it, and hug it…oh, and flip through it lol! I started with a Moleskine, large, soft cover, lined notebook. and in “Documented Life Project” style, I added tabs, tip-ins, washi tape and stamping before leaving home. I purchased post cards everywhere we went, but most of what I added was free…airline tags and boarding passes, images and text cut from free brochures, receipts, etc. I journaled a lot, either on the back of post cards, or on the lined pages of the journal. I did take along a fair amount of supplies, but mostly I just used gluestick, washi tape, and pens. The paper in the journal is quite thin, so I either glued two pages together and added washi tape to the side edge, or I covered the entire page to make it thicker and stronger. Here are some still photos. I plan to do a video when I get home.

      hello, Janet and thanks for your comment. My journal is 8 inches by 11 inches. it is a good size…not too big to fit in my carry on luggage, but big enough to add lots of bigger things like maps.

    Your pages are beautiful. I love how you did the edges with the tape which services the twofold purpose of being pretty and making them sturdier and less prone to tear.
