Travel Journal Prompts

Travel Journal Prompts

journal prompts to get your travel stories started

I thought it might be fun to include some journal prompts for those who are also looking to chronicle some travel stories right now.

These will come in handy in my own travel album as I work on updating it this year. If you're someone who likes to journal as they travel, you'll love this list as well. I've popped a printable version in the Freebies section for you.
