AFTER ALL, YOUR journal travels with you. When you get soaked in that surprise downpour… it does too.
And it’ll be there a year later when you’re working your new job, aching for a travel fix. You’ll pull out your old journal and there you’ll be—the you you’ve come to miss—staring back at you.
So gussy it up a little. Here’s how:
Armed with nothing but a cheap glue stick, you can make collage pages in your travel journal by ripping images out of glossy brochures you find in hostels, tour offices, airports, bus depots, and train stations.
Things to use: tour brochures, post cards, photos, fliers, maps, shopping bags, postage stamps, beer labels, magazine pages, and anything else you can get your hands on for free.
Idea: Each time you get to a new country, leave a blank page in your journal where you can make a country-themed collage to mark the beginning of that section.
