Are you off to a
vacation adventure this summer? Have
you ever kept a travel journal?
A travel journal is where you write
about your personal, family and/or
business travels. It can be a separate
journal where you record your
experiences, details, and even your
feelings about your travels, creating
a written record of each trip. You can
also record your travels, if you
already journal, in your existing
journal. Just indicate that this is a
record of your travels -- That can be
accomplished by using a separate color
You can record.

want to see?

In your travel journal you can add

drawings, menus, any items that you
want to add, and that fit the space
Travel Journals for the Children
A great tool to involve the whole
family is to create a travel journal
for the children. They can use a
notebook and record the same items
that you did, writing what their
experiences were. They can also write
a story telling what they experienced
each day. You can create a game for
them where they count the cows they
see, other children they met, or
towns, etc., keeping that information
in their journal.
Use the idea of a travel journal to
keep a written record of all your
travels, all those adventures.
