How to Make a Travel Journal

 Making a Travel Journal

Our granddaughter asked me if I would guest post for Two Nerds Travel, a blog that she and her husband co-author, while they're away on their honeymoon. She specifically asked me to write about how I make a travel journal, because she's seen me do it - when, before she was married, she accompanied us to London and Cambridge. And although some of you have already seen this little project, many have not. For me, it's a fun and easy way to take a few simple tools along in my carry- on and end up with a completed souvenir to take home at the end of our stay.

So, to get the easy instructions on how to make a fun travel journal, please go to Two Nerds Travel for all the juicy details. I know that Anna and Ben will love to hear from you when they return from their honeymoon on warm, sandy beaches, far away from cold, blustery Minnesota...sigh.

On a personal note:  After reading my post at Two Nerds Travel, I hope you will leave a comment for them, so that they will know it was worth asking Grandma to guest post! :-)  I've gotta protect my reputation, you know!

I loved this post!! I make journals very much like yours for decades now so this wAS fun to see! We think alike that is for sure! Love your travel journals and would love to see more of them!

Lorrie said...

I always take a Moleskin journal along on my travels - I have one specifically for trips. I'll pop over and see your creation!

Terri D said...

I will hop right over there! I kept a journal when we went to Italy, but not a beautifully as you did for your trip.

Nora said...

I had a peek over there and left a comment. I really think the books you make of your trips are works of art! Wonderful way to remember the little things we forget.

Deborah Montgomery said...

okay -- heading on over!!

I'm heading over, Judy! I need to make a scrapbook or something from my journal when we were in England. ♥

Debbie said...

hehehehe...nothing better than the written word. but now that i have my blog, i use it as a dairy and journal!!

Lynne said...

Love this . . .
Now I go visit the kids . . .

Lynne said...

I like your Travel Journal . . .
I will use some of your ideas!
I have a written journal that I have carried on my Ireland trips.
I wrote in it daily . . . and have referred back to it often.
I do find that I collect "bits and bobs" on a trip and many of them are tucked into my written journal.
Next trip I will use your style.
We too have had a scissors incident . . .definitely confiscated
Tucked in the bottom of my husbands shaving/deodorant pouch and found on the scan . . . zapped away!

Stephanie said...

A travel journal....what a fabulous idea, my friend :)

I hope you had a lovely Sunday and may your week be most blessed. Hugs!

All the best Jan

Tracy Batchelder said...

What a fun way to collect memories of your trip!

Linda Kay said...

Judy, we don't create a journal to that degree along the way, but we do take notes, and hubby always includes a picture of the venue when we take pictures, as usually there is a sign of some sort. Nice work!

Buttons Thoughts said...

Oh I love this idea.It is very beautiful and what a great way to remember. I went to a Travel writing workshop on the weekend. It was very interesting and would pair with this very nice. Thanks for sharing. Hug B

Missy George said...

I guess this requires that one travels??? Have a good week Judy..

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

WOW! How fabulous! I used to make photo albums for big trips we made when my kids were growing up. We looked through some last week. I would love to make some travel journals like yours. Hugs, Diane

Hi Judy,
I am so happy to share with all, "I actually got to look at one of Cranberry Mornings journals. I think she does an amazing job. A true treasure!"
I am off to visit the Nerds!

Here I thought that I gave you a reply today on the scarf that I made...
But I first like to comment on your travel journal - how neat to be a guest author!
In the past I made travel journals, but since I started blogging,
I take that as my "journal" - of course not every detail, but the newsworthy and amusing facts are on here, because I also keep an art journal and a dream journal:)

Back to where I started, you made a kind comment on my blog in the post Seasons-curious about March about my knitted scarf, but you forgot to leave a pic for your link! Hope you don't mind, to go back (link is open till Wed. 6 pm) and leave me a pic - anything you like -Thanks so much!Have a happy week:)

Denise said...
