Why I Love Postcard Travel Journals
How to Make a Postcard JournalThis post contains affiliate links, meaning, if you click through and make a purchase or sign up for a program, I may earn small commission. This is at no additional cost to you.
Here’s what I do. Each day I buy a postcard that represents where I am or what I’m doing that day.
I use an extra postcard to create a cover. (That purple one below? It’s part of a set I bought when I lived in Germany as a high school student!) I then use washi tape and a Sharpie to write my travel information on the cover. You could also simply use your “Day 1” postcard as your cover. Or get fancy with stickers and other embellishments.
I then bind all of the postcards together using a metal ring. Don’t have a metal ring? You can buy them at any office supply store or on Amazon. You could use a ribbon or baker’s twine.
Leave your postcard journal on your living room coffee table or hang it on a bulletin board in your office. You’ll find that it invites questions and conversations about your travels without you feeling like you’re forcing the topic on anyone!
