Travelers Notebook | Holiday Journaling Catch Up

Back at the beginning of February, I did a blog about the things I was taking with me on holiday to journal with. Journaling isn’t something I usually do and was a big step out of my comfort zone, but I’m glad to report it was some what of a success!

Josh and I went to Budapest for midweek city break and let me tell you one thing – it was freezing! Even though were from the UK and it’s usually cold here, this was something else – seriously! Despite the cold, we persevered and managed to get around the city (took a little Segway tour too!) and I got a lot of bits together that I wanted to journal about.

Although the following photos are my journal, I’ve not actually done the written part of it yet. I’m still trying to find the time and the right words to use to describe our time in Budapest and I don’t want to mess it up – there is not going back! Nonetheless, you can still see how and what I journaled about and see an overview of our little trip!

You’ll get to see our photos, some of the lettering styles I used, the accessories I used to journal with like a date stamper and also the papers and the likes! I’ll link everything I can at the end of the post! As always with these types of blog posts, I’m going to let the photos do the talking – so enjoy!

FYI: Photo’s were printed using a Polaroid Zip Printer and the notebook itself is the Midori thick blank ones!

(Just incase you wondered, I did ask Josh if I could put pictures of him on the internet and he has no shame so he was all up for it! – he doesn’t look like the above all the time, he just hates having photos taken! HA!)

    Please write in your journal asap. Don’t worry about ‘perfection’! You’ll forget so much just in a few short days and that effort with all your photos will be good wasted. At least write up a draft separately if you can’t bring yourself to wrote in your notebook.
