You have been planning it for years and, whether it's around the world first class or around Australia in a Kombi, you are about to experience the trip of a lifetime. It is amazing how quickly it will flash by. You will take photos and even video footage, but they will only tell part of the story. Your travel journal is where you will record the highs and lows, the exhilaration and disappointment that is all part of the rich travel experience. It may be written by the flickering light of a campfire or poolside in a luxury resort, but this is where you will record your innermost thoughts. And when the trip is slowly becoming a distant memory, you will relive it through the pages of your travel journal.
