I was recently approached by Gill over at the website Journal Craft Inspiration for an interview on my travel journals. It was fun to share some of my tips and stories with her and her readers. I recommend exploring around on her site – she’s got a lot to look at. If you’re visiting from journalcraft.co.uk, then hello and welcome! If you would like to read more about my journals, please check out the following:
Here’s a snippet from the interview:
Do you complete your journal entry ‘on-site’ or do you continue working on it when you get home?
I tend to define my journal as one moment in time, capturing thoughts, plans, and important information for a journey from the late planning stages to the return home. On some trips, I can’t find time to write during the day, so I’ll spend an hour or so in the evening, preferably at a cafe, furiously writing down everything I can recall that happened since the last time I wrote. When I’m home, the journal becomes a time capsule, its contents “sealed”. Nothing will be added or taken away from it.
