T is for… Travel


Travel. Who does not love travelling. More and More of us are taking time out from our lives to do some travelling. Time passes so quickly when we are having fun and a travel journal (or variation) is a perfect way of keeping a memento of your trip.

If you are a foodie, you may wish to record the restaurants you visited. If you like Bikes/Cycling – a bike watchers journal to record your travels. If you love the arts and visit many museums and cultural events: The Arts Observations and Discoveries Notebook.

If you are not a big writer but like collecting tickets you may be best with a Travel Stub Diary or Ticket Sub Diary or if you want a more traditional travel journal why not check out one of the ones below:

Even if you are not travelling far and staying in your own city or country you may enjoy Side Walks.

Finally you could always simply create your own travel journal like I did here.

Alife B6 planner

[tweetmeme source=”notesinabook” only_single=false]

This Alife planner was just something I picked up in the Bargain Bucket in Paperchase. This notebook has a PVC enamel covering and is available in a variety of colours.

What is so great about this notebook is that it is made to be functional – with a variety of pages, labelled on the front as: Free Writing 176 pages, Free Drawing 196 Pages, Memo 16 pages, Information archive 16 pages. It also has plastic pockets in the over to place loose bits of paper (and in my case souvenir beer mats).The notebook is incredibly durable and survived a month backpacking round Europe.

There are many specialised travel journals out there, but I found that this notebook suited my needs more as I could tailor it to suit me.

I planned my journey in the free writing section, detailing the cities I was going to and mapped out locations of hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions. The perfect way to cut down from a full-on travel book. The other sections are suitable for diary entries, keep track of you holiday budget, keeping your souvenirs and  keeping note of information.
