Wow, thank you so much for your lovely comments!

It will be such a treat to look back at this later, after the trip isn't so fresh in your mind, and revisit all those memories through your journal pages.
I have quite a few from various travels (in a range of styles and abilities it has to be said Wink ) and they're so wonderful to look back on! It's amazing the things you forget over time, and the memories that can be triggered by looking at just at colours, or bits of paper, or scribbled notes.

The trouble is that once you start keeping travel journals they become addictive and photos alone just aren't the same any more Cheesy

Its fabulous as your stuff always is. But I love that you are doing more journalling in your pages now, It really adds to it. You are so much more restrained in filling your pages than I can ever hope to be!

I love personal swaps, for supplies, surprises, flamingo themed things and general silliness

I would love to get my hands on charlie harper fabric.

Thank you so much!

I think the handmade paper in the book definitely made a huge difference. It was nice to work on something with a little texture and I love the flower/leafy inclusions that pop up randomly. Cheesy

Ooh Phizzy, can you give me some tips so I can keep one on my big New Orleans vaca later this summer? I kept a regular ole journal when I went to Europe 10 years ago...I wish I had kept it up better! When you're prepping it, do you pre-write any questions or anything? Or is it mostly decorating you're doing beforehand?

Sure! I painted all of the pages beforehand and glued some background papers on the pages, just to start it off, and that was about it.

These were a few of the pages before I went...


I can definitely recommend picking as much stuff up as you can wherever you go. Even if you don't know where you'll use it, everything can be useful! Cheesy I bought postcards to cut up and collected leaflets and whatnot, which were always cut and glued in somewhere at the next coffee break. Never go anywhere without at least scissors, a glue stick, and an ink pen! Cheesy
