Any travel journalists here?

After posting on a thread about Passpockets being no more, I thought I'd ask here-- do any of you use travel journals of any kind? My DH bought me the Mickey Mouse travel journal at the Ear Port and I love it, but I'm also drawn to the (admittedly faddish) modular travel journals with replaceable booklets and pockets. Or maybe I want to make one. I just don't know yet! So I thought I'd ask here, because of it's something that has proven useful in a Disney park, somebody here will know about it.

I have no idea what you are talking about, but now I'm curious!



I save all kinds of ephemera from my trips, but I never seem to do anything with it! Do you have a link to the pocket-type journal you are interested in trying out?

I recall seeing travel journals in Hallmark stores some years ago.

Their purpose was similar to using the hard copy Passporter guides for collecting and preserving trip memorabilia. They had sections for recording details about the trip, both facts and impressions. Some had squares the size of a candid photo to place a photo alongside your account of a specific day. Occasionally, there were pockets but not typically.

Those I remember were like a journal book, hardbound. Some had an elastic band to hold them closed or had ribbon place markers.

This sort of thing seems to me like what Coreada is describing. Am I right?

Yes, like that. The best known right now seem to be Midori (https://www.thejournalshop.com/noteb...y-brand/midori), but my Mickey one is this one: https://www.shopdisney.com/mickey-mo...-world-1463845. I love my Mickey journal, but I can see some advantages to the Midori-style design. I want to try to figure out how to combine both styles.
