Remember my DIY Corkboard Map from a couple weeks ago? Along with the map, I also gave Tanner a DIY travel journal so we could document each trip we took together. Anyone that knows me knows that I can’t remember where I last placed my phone, much less everywhere we have traveled and their respective dates. I decided I better remedy that quickly, because even though Tanner’s memory may be a little better than mine, I doubt we will either remember what month or even year “that summer we went to Boston” was for goodness sakes!

What you’ll need to make a DIY travel Journal:

 What you’ll do:

  • Stamp the cover of your journal however you choose. I just used the word “travels”   Keepin’ it simple!
  • My journal had a cover page that I stamped as well with “Let’s go everywhere!”

  • I then stamped “Place and Date” and then hand wrote each place we have traveled.

We have really enjoyed being able to look back at our journal and see where each year has taken us. It definitely has been helpful keeping track of everywhere we have been. I’m sure it will be so much fun to look back when the pages are full. Hopefully this will inspire you to make your own journal! Or at the very least just write your travels down somewhere!

  1. Love this ;) I need to make one for us, I usually simply journal when we go on big trips but the small ones are just as important. Aaron takes the photos I do the journaling.

  2. Cute! I need to make one before I go to Italy!

  3. What a cute and easy DIY idea. Travel journals are such a great way to keep your adventures documented. xx Kat

  4. LOVE this idea and am in the process of making one now for a birthday gift. I’ll send a picture when it’s finished! Thanks for the inspiration :)

    • Thanks Meg! I can’t wait to see your finished product! Make sure to send those pictures! :)

  5. I wish it wasn’t too late for me to do one of these entitled: “Cars I’ve owned” I think I’ve owned about 45 cars and trucks over the past 35 years. How fun would it be to have a photo journal of them… and/or the places We’ve traveled in them.
