The journal I kept during those 18 months is one of the best souvenirs from my first journey around the globe. The journal I kept during my first trip around the world has helped me relive it over and over for years to come.

Reliving events is priceless. Memories fade. To be reminded of the people I met and places I saw? Seeing my travels through my younger self’s eyes is a great feeling. The younger me was very wise!

Journals allow you to be more honest and personal. Unlike social media, you will likely be the only person to read your journal. The longer form of writing allows for more detail and makes it easier to read in the future.

Last year, I created My Travel Journal because more travelers should journal as they travel.

A printing mistake meant that the first edition of our book was thicker than a Bible. This one is ideal for people who live abroad, travel extensively, or like to decorate their journals with train tickets, postcards, etc.

We corrected the mistake and are now selling “right-sized” books. I am so excited to share that these books will be available today!

The journal includes quotes and guided prompts to help you stay motivated as you travel. The journal also has pre- and after-trip sections so that you can reflect and set your goals before recording your experiences.

This new edition includes everything you need to document your trip.

  • The app has prompts to help you remember all of your important memories.
  • You can also leave some space unoccupied to let your mind run wild.
  • Travel quotes that will inspire you.
  • The notebook is only slightly thicker than a Moleskine. It’s ideal for traveling.

The journal is designed to be as straightforward as possible, so you can easily remember those fantastic moments. You will also get in the habit of writing every day.

The journal is available for sale at $24.99. This journal is 168 pages and weighs 0.75 lbs. It comes in four different colors.

  • Beige
  • Black
  • Navy
  • Pink

All U.S. clients also get free domestic shipping. We ship the book worldwide, so even if you’re not based in the U.S., you can get it delivered!
