more than a blank journal

Your Travel Notes grew during a seemingly inopportune time. Global quarantine and travel have zero correlation. But as our homes became our only destinations, we had plenty of time to reflect. My daydreaming brought me back to my past travels before the world came to a halt. Cracking open my weathered travel journal I was disheartened to discover boring two-dimensional recollections. At best I was reading a play-by-play from my trips. I failed to capture my feelings and emotions. I realized my writing was simply a grocery list of experiences. The ruled pages were filled with stale recollections that left me missing all the most memorable feelings traveling brought me. So, I redirected my frustrations and created Your Travel Notes!

Your writing is precious! The thought of throwing a full travel journal onto a bistro table in Paris or gripping it on a rickshaw in Bangkok makes my stomach flip. Relying on one travel journal that is filled with years of memories is a risky practice. As savvy travelers, we all know to pack spare clothes in our carry-ons but we forget to prepare our travel journals. I have made a promise to myself, instead of writing in the same journal during trip after trip, I vow to start fresh with every adventure. This way my entries from road tripping Route 66 don’t get Pho spilled on them in Vietnam. This peace of mind, knowing that my other travel memories are safe at home allows my anxiety to take a vacation. Instead, I start fresh with a new Your Travel Notes for each new adventure.

In our fast-paced, digital world, it’s a relief to simply be present and write. Having Your Travel Notes means no fears of losing service, low battery, or getting overwhelmed by thousands of notifications on your smartphone. Besides, your memories should not be abbreviated to a 280 character blurb.

Freeze that thumb. Stop your scroll. Pick up a pen and archive your world. Make time to reap the benefits of keeping a travel journal.

Having a hard copy to store your memories and experiences is a priceless gift for yourself. Take five minutes, or a full morning to just sit down and write. I promise you will thank yourself later for taking the time to archive your world!
