So, I made them both these travel journals using a couple of exercise books that I had in the cupboard along with some scrapbook paper and stickers from my stash. I got the idea for the books from a post Gail Lindner did a while back (so thanks Gail for the great idea!)
Now all the kids have to do is fill them with wonderful memories!
I have never been a diary writer, but when I go away I write a daily journal of what we've done, where we've been, what we ate etc. etc. and I have to say that I really love reading my entries at later dates. I also use my journal for scrap booking our memories, when I create our photo books and when I blog about our trip. Travel journals are worth the time and effort.
