Sometimes the travel journal is the first thing checked off my prep list. Sometimes it’s closer to the last.
We’ve got a big trip up our sleeve and I wasn’t sure how many pages I’d need to fit it all, or what paper would do it justice on the cover. Due to lots of crazy life events, I didn’t have time to buy and had to use my stash.
Then I stalked around the house looking at every piece of paper I could get my hands on (insert moment when I thought I’d lost the paper from Italy in the move, then realized I didn’t want to use it for a journal once I’d found it).
I settled on something bright, cheery, and orange. I added more pages to it than I ever have in a journal before. Usually I use 10 sheets of paper, which when folded in half gives me 40 pages to write on. I went with 25 sheets this time. I hope it’s enough!
I sometimes find taking time out to write in my journal a chore and find myself envying Mr. P reading a book. But I’m always glad to have it when I get home. I’ve mentioned this before, but I don’t scrapbook while traveling. It’s just me and this little journal. I can’t wait to use it!
