I also designed a travel journal. Something smaller than a bread box and more intimate than the binder. The first time we went to Disney, I had printed out journal pages that went in the binder. Each night, I filled out the questions of the day, and made little notes. I was glad to have it when I wrote up my trip report and scrapbooked but to me those journal pages were too structured and boring.
It was probably a month before our trip this year and I was wandering the aisles of Marshalls. I found this blank journal:
I wasn't looking to make this one of those swanky, professional looking, serious heirloom-type journals. I just wanted something that was more fly-by-the-seat, not based on appointments or schedules. There for, the pages are not in any order of occurrence.
I made pockets at home with tags for some of the pages. For the countries, I used the Destinations cartridge.
|Free, daily activity at Animal Kingdom Lodge|

For every day we were on vacation, I pasted a cricut cut-out to a page.
|Left side: Empty tea bag packets and coaster from the Concierge Lounge.|
After the trip, I had what I wanted. A more intimate, thorough, and picturesque travel journal.
Now all I have to do is decide of if I want to cut out the blank pages so the book lies flatter.
Do you have Disney Travel Journal? I'd love to see it. Post a link in the comments section.
