When my friend got me a travel journal for my birthday a few years ago, I was over the moon.
She was creative in her approach, filling the journal with stamps, travel quotes and personalised it with a silver engraving of my initials.
I remember taking the journal on all my adventures, whether it was a family trip to Sun City or a work assignment in the Western Cape.
Travel journals, for me, are a good way to write down the day’s event and recreate them when you open its pages years later. It is also something that can be passed down to future generations.
