This past year, I’ve really gotten into journaling for all kinds of things, from daily to do lists to miniature diary-like entries to record certain events. I’ve also started keeping a travel journal when I travel – you can see my entries from my October USA travel journal here. In that video, I asked if anyone would like to see a video about how I prep my journal for a trip, and the response was an overwhelming yes! So today’s video is exactly that – I share how I prep my journal for my Tokyo trip, and also provide tips for making your own travel journal. Give it a watch below!
One thing that I don’t really make clear in the video that I want to here: I don’t actually fill out every journal page when I’m traveling. For this recent Tokyo trip, I only did 4 days in my hotel room when I was there! I think there’s often an assumption that people put a lot of time and effort into making cute journals, which may be true to an extent, but I firmly believe that you should only do it when it makes you feel good, and not feel guilted into making your journal look a certain way. Now that I’m back in Australia, I’m enjoying playing catch-up in my travel journal because it helps me remember the fun times I had when I was in Japan. So if you want to try journaling, do whatever is most enjoyable for you!
