We found the most creative ways to document — and inspire — your wanderlust.
Though we live in a digital age, there will always be something quite romantic and meditative about taking a moment to jot down your thoughts while you’re on the road. Travel journals are personal. They become time capsules of your memories, emotions, and descriptions of the places, people, and things you’ve encountered.
Even if you visit a well-known city like Paris or New York City that’s been the subject of millions of travelogues, your trip is still unique because of all the little, hidden cafés you will discover, the conversations you will strike with locals and fellow travelers, and the situations you will find yourself getting into. And since time tends to erase moments, names, and details from our memories, writing them down in a journal is the best way to preserve them for years to come.
And if like us, you can't bear to throw away museum tickets or metro cards from foreign cities because they will forever remind you of your time spent there, consider purchasing a travel diary with a few pockets in it to store all of your keepsakes.
So whether you’re looking for a luxury leather journal to chronicle your adventures or you need an agenda to help you plan, organize, and document your journeys, we found 19 options that will satisfy any traveler.
