When I was visiting in Virginia, my sister in law shared a great idea with me. Every time she and her husband go on vacation, she takes with her a journal in which she writes about her trip. She also takes the opportunity to purchase her next journal wherever she is. I thought that was a really cool idea, and I adopted it. While I was in Virginia, I bought myself a cool notebook and wrote about my Virginia trip. Since then, I used it while I was in Jerome and will use it next time I go camping. I think she only uses hers for “big” trips, but the nice thing about ideas is that they can be individualized.
I have a tendency to write things in different places and have no idea where I’ve written it down later. Or, I’ll find something and have no idea when I wrote it, and be sad that I lost it. I’m trying to be more organized… I’m a work in progress. 🙂
So far, I really love this method of writing about trips. I chose a small journal, and next time, I’d choose a regular sized one. The small journal is cute and fits nicely into my purse, but my hand cramps when I write in it, so a bigger journal next time.
