In the previous post, I've talked about starting my first travel journal, and looking back now after almost two months, my notebook is almost ran out of pages! Thanks to the sudden urge of doodling and noting down notes, so yeah, mission-not-accomplished!

Little things that i've learned about keeping up a journal is:
1. I have a perfectly horrible handwriting.
2. My mind seems to jump all over since there were a lot of arrows on the pages.
3. Keep your journal separated from your other notes, i.e : buy more notebooks.

Anyway, let see what did i wrote for the first page of my travel journal entry :

Phew! That's 13 cities, 9 countries, 2 continents and 19 times abroad in the span of 6 years! I wouldn't have known how far and constant I've been traveling, and trailing them down by memory and by my Facebook posting helped me hunt them down one by one. So my suggestion, before you start writing your travel journal, take 5 minutes to jot down all the trips you have ever taken. Ever! This will helped you to a great start of planning your writing and travelling in the future. All the best!
