While it’s lovely to snap tons of photographs of the magically interesting and breathtaking places you have visited all over the world, there is nothing quite like keeping a record of your travels in a collection of stylish photo notebooks.
If you’re a stationery lover or a committed list maker, filling up the pages of a traditional photo album with your travel photos simply won’t be adequate enough. To satisfy your lust for premium quality paper, it’s easy to put pen to paper to keep a record of your travels journal-style.
A versatile softback photo notebook can be filled with a combination of writing and photos to create a unique and treasured keepsake. There are absolutely no rules, limits, or restrictions on how you use your personalized notebook to record your vintage travels.
List Your Travel Itinerary
Any avid traveller will tell you that to make the most of your time in any destination. It’s essential that you have a travel itinerary. Photo notebooks are perfect for planning out a schedule of the must-visit attractions that you want to see.
When you’re on your travels, you can easily refer to the list you have written in your personalised photo notebook to not miss out on anything. Keep the notebook in your daypack when you’re hiking or trekking, and use it to make notes of your adventure discoveries.
You can tick off all of the activities listed in your travel itinerary once completed. You can embellish the itinerary entries with photographs of each of the landmark sites that you visited on your return home. You can also add a map and other information about your routes.
Keep A Travel Diary
Beautiful photo notebooks can easily be transformed into a captivating travel diary. Instead of just listing the places that you visit while you’re on holiday, you can write about how the experience feels.
A travel diary will allow you to take a trip down memory lane in years to come. It’s therefore important to include as much detail as possible to bring your writing to life. Pay attention to your senses so that you embellish your writing with details of the sounds, smells, and tastes, as well as the sights.
In your travel themed photo notebook, you can write about the places that you explore and include a cast list of the interesting local people and other travellers that you meet along the way. Jotting down notes on funny things that you see and hear while you’re on your travels is also a great idea. Don’t forget to include the day and date for each travel diary entry!
Jog Your Memory
As travel can be so much fun, there may be times when you have no desire to stick to any kind of routine, including keeping a travel diary or journal. If you lack the required discipline or don’t have sufficient time to write a full description, you can always use your practical photo notebook to jot down keywords and scribble notes that will jog your memory later.
You can also add snaps with captions and anecdotes to your notebook to jog your memory of each experience, excursion, or adventure. And if you’re artistic, you can decorate the pages with hand-drawn illustrations of the wonders of nature that you see all around you whilst you’re travelling.
Create A Unique Travel Memory Book
Just because notebooks are traditionally used for writing, it doesn’t mean that you have to fill your personalised photo notebooks like everyone else. You may prefer to fill up the pages with scrapbook style mementos to accompany your selection of favourite travel photos.
To create a picture-based travel journal, take plenty of photos, and collect an assortment of tickets, receipts, postcards, flyers, and labels that are relevant to the destination. You can also cut out snippets from local newspapers to add to your travel memory book collage.
Build A Collection Of Your Vintage Travels
If you’re a seasoned globetrotter, you’ll probably have countless travel tales and amazing experiences that you can share with your loved ones. A photo notebook is the perfect companion guide for any vast collection of personalised travel photo albums.
You can use a luxury photo notebook to record the finer details of every family holiday, gap year break, or short getaway that you’ve been on. Whenever you browse through a photo album of your vintage travels, you can easily refer back to the information and notes that you kept a record of in your notebook at the time.
Your Trusty Solo Travel Companion
If you love to travel solo, a photo notebook can become a trusty companion that you can rely on whenever you feel homesick or lonesome. Besides decorating your customised notebook with your favourite photos and mementos, you can also use it for personal and creative expression.
There’s a wealth of inspiration around you, especially when you travel around the world. At times you may find that you’ve moved to write your feelings down on paper, as you don’t have someone to share them with. This emotive writing can teach you a lot of things about yourself and how you view the world.
Your travel companion notebook will quickly become indispensable once you discover how keeping a record of your feelings while you’re away from home can greatly enhance your travel experiences in the future.
