The One-Sentence Travel Journal


Gone are the days where I'll spend hours writing furiously in my journal about the mundane details of my teenage life. It's fun (and pretty embarrassing) to read my old angsty scribbles, but I just can't make daily journaling a priority anymore. Still, it's nice to be able to look back on a trip and get a tiny glimpse into what it was actually like, rather than the romanticized version created by my back-at-work memory. 

So, back in June I bought this teensy notebook and started a one-sentence(ish) travel journal. The time commitment's minuscule, and already I look back at the pages and go "Oh yeah, I forgot about that." It's also a nice place to keep little mementos like tickets from a show or my New York Metro card. I'm already glad I started the journal this summer, and look forward to filling it with the adventures and mishaps that come with travel.

  1. Awesome travel journal idea! I love the idea of keeping little stubs and cards in there too :) I've never been one to journal (which is why I wanted to blog) but I travel so much and I would have LOVED to have this type of momento!

    1. Hopefully you can start a little journal of your own! It really is a fun memento.

  2. hi!
    I also have a travel journal that I always take along with me! I write about fun facts that happened, the miles that we travelled, the quick stops that we did, the restaurants where we ate and I also paste my travel tickets ;)

  4. I really love this idea (i've even bookmarked this post!) . I can totally relate to not having the time to journal everyday. I used to be so committed to diarising every mundane thing that happens to me but eventually life took over and I forgot about it. I'm really looking forward to doing this one-sentence journal on my next holiday! I recently found your blog and I'm glad that I did! If you get the time, please also check out my blog :)
