  • travel journalWhen you travel, are you like me who keeps every single bit of item? I don’t throw away plane tickets, boarding passes, glass coasters, and the like because I associate them with the feeling of happiness that I had during that particular trip.  Back home, though, I would not know where to keep them, and one time, to my dismay, they were thrown away by mistake.

    Thankfully, a friend of mine with great talent and gifted hands showed me what to make of all the keepsakes I collect during my vacations : a travel journal.  It’s like a scrapbook / journal / photo album in one.  Here’s how to make one, but feel free to experiment and to let your creativity soar:
