I have a horrible memory, so having a journal to write my experiences is a must. I sit down at the end of the day - or during a break in our adventures - and write about the interesting places I've visited and the funny things my friends or family and I say to each other. I love being able to look back at all the unique experiences I've had.

Sometimes my trips are an hour away to get a break from the day to day, or practice my nature photography, or even longer trips with family or friends where we have new adventures that I want to keep track of. I like to write down the places we visit, any wildlife that we see, special flowers or trees, and any interesting conversations that we have.

Keep track of your travel adventures with this easy DIY notebook!
