Ever since my Ashli was a little girl, we have had a plan to travel the world when she turns 18. At the time we began talking about it, the dream was years away from becoming a reality, but time travels faster than we like to think about, and while we were busy enjoying our lives, my baby girl grew up.
So in the last few weeks we’ve started talking seriously about our future plans, countries we wish to visit, things we’d like to experience and all that stuff. One of the things we have made a firm decision on is a travel journal. Ash and myself, both having artistic souls, would really love to record our adventures with beautiful, old world style travel journals. We are actually quite excited about sketching and painting our way around the world.
That of course means we need to locate the perfect travel journey for our travels, and that is what I have been hunting down over the last week. These are a few that have made my short list.
I fell in love with this journal the moment I found it. Beside the leather wrap-around cover which we have been looking for, I adore the world map charm and the fact that the creator will hand stitch your initials into the cover upon request.
I love the look of this journal and it’s wooden cover. It’s not exactly the leather cover we were looking for, but it still has that ‘old-world” feeling to it that we were hoping for.
Leather wrap-around cover – check! Lots of pages for our drawings and notes, meaning we could possibly end up needing one journal for the entire trip, which would also be fantastic, I’m not fussed on dragging a lot of stuff around. I also love that the journal is created especially for you when you place the order, it just feels a little more special knowing that it was made just for me.
This one has to be my favourite I think. It has the wraparound cover, it’s made with leather, but it also has storage for our art supplies, which I feel is actually quite important.
So these are my choices at the moment for beautiful, old style travel journals. If you are looking for more travel journal inspiration for your own travels, follow along on my Travel Journals Pinterest board.
