Travel Journal

I just finished making a travel journal for an upcoming trip we are taking, using writing prompts from this post on the Daily Digi. [okay, to be fair, just = July 24, but it took a while to get a picture!] I purposely didn't put too much effort into the journal because I am the type of person to not write in something if it is too "fancy". I bought a Moleskine Cahier Large Blank notebook from Amazon (in blue) and stamped a few things on the cover - I was inspired by this journal on etsy. Then I wrote in the prompts for each day. I am hoping that this will make it easier to journal on the trip and scrapbook it later. I tend to journal a lot in the beginning and then fizzle out as we are having more and more fun. I also tend to feel obligated to record all of the details in chronological order and I am hoping the prompts will help me let go of that. For instance, one of the prompts is "What made you laugh today?" I can totally answer that without having to feel bogged down in recording all the details of the day.
