I love to travel and for me planning the trip is all part of the fun! There are two main ways I use my BuJo as a travel journal. Firstly for planning the actual trip and itinerary, and secondly for documenting the trip either while I’m away or on my return.
In this weeks blog I will share a few examples of how I have used my Bullet Journal for travel planning.
My most recent travel spread is one I created for an upcoming trip to Iceland. As always, my spreads are created inside my A5 Scribbles that Matter Journal*, I have used the Oops a Daisy Travel Stencil to draw out a map of the world and then the pointer icon to locate Iceland!
I then used the plane, luggage and camera icons to section off areas to add in travel and itinerary details.
I also like to add in some key details about the country I am visiting such as: Currency, Language, Capital City and Population.
To see the Travel Stencil in action take a look at the video below where I set up a spread dedicated to a trip to Berlin.
Another example of a travel planning spread is shown below:
Once the planning is done and the trip is complete I often want to document the things that I’ve seen. I love to use more of a scrapbook style to save ticket stubs and other souvenirs that I have collected.
After a recent trip to Belfast I created the spread below. I wanted to replicate the stunning street art by using graffiti style text to write out the central title. I loved this text so much that I then created a Graffiti Text Stencil so that I can replicate it more easily!
To help with future travel planning I have created a free downloadable travel planning worksheet. To download this to use in your own journal click here!
I’d really love to see all of your travel planning spreads. Don’t forget to share them in the Bullet Journal Squad Facebook Group!
