Travel journaling

It's vacation time! Don't forget to record your travel memories — tuck a journal in your luggage and write in it frequently to help keep your experiences alive. Try journaling each evening, or in the morning when you arise, while the previous day's activities are fresh in your mind. Did you discover a marvelous new destination? Describe what made it so intriguing. Did you try a delectable dish or dessert? Tell how it tasted. Did you meet interesting fellow travelers? What were their names? Write down any quotations or inscriptions you see. Try sketching local landmarks, or landscapes or seascapes. Tuck mementos, such as tickets and postcards, into your journal, or bring double-sided tape and affix them to the pages. Then share your journal with friends and family upon your return.

Please allow us to suggest a few journals with which to capture your memories! Our "old school" Voyages journal is popular with our customers; it comes with plenty of lightly-lined pages and features travel quotations throughout. Our Travel Journal is also well-received. It's compact, has a front magnetic panel to keep it closed, and a handy pocket inside the back cover. Our Trips Journal is simple and straightforward and comes with a pocket and an elastic band to keep your place or keep your journal closed. And if you feel you may need help with trip planning and organizing, consider our very practical Little Black Travel Journal, packed with features to keep that itinerary on schedule.

Bon voyage!

Many children have winter break from school for a whole week very soon.

Some families take this time to spend together doing a variety of things.

Many families travel to warm destinations, others might go skiing, and many people choose to stay home for numerous reasons. But you might make one night "Family Night" and play board games or watch movies.

So we would like to know, what does your family do when you have the time off during the school year?
