No matter if you're on the other side of the world or exploring a new corner of the country, there is something to be said about tracking your experience beyond snapshots. Keeping a travel journal is a wonderful, alternative way to archive a journey. Here are just a few potentially perfect places to record your reflections!

As is often the case, look no further than Etsy for a fabulous selection of eco-options and delicious designs!
