Why use ANY travel journal? Why not just remember all the fun times on your vacation?

Because without one, you will arrive home, get back in your routines, and the memories of that fun, fun vacation will fade away - guaranteed! Within embarrassingly too few days or weeks after arriving home, your wonderful memories will have melted into one big fat faded adventure with just a title like New York or Paris or Oh Yes, Where Was I?

Deep down you sense the consequences, yet in today's high-speed world, why WOULD you be drawn to the old traditional, staid trip journal to use? You wouldn't, you aren't..you're normal.

Before we check out the difference between old style and new creative journals, let us tap into something...that you have a natural instinct that you need to capture highlights of your trip with your camera AND PEN. Real Life has taught you well.

Remember wishing to retrieve memories of fun trips..those moments when you put your index finger to your cheek as you mentally searched for details to bring the highlights into focus..and you couldn't remember them. Not then, not ever. Ouch!

What happened? In the moment of fun you swore to the world you would NEVER EVER FORGET this place, this place, these people..but you did.

That can be in the past: your future can be different. Experience and experience proves that reading just a few of words will immediately pop a moment-in-time back to life, in full color - as though you are there again. It is like magic, and it happens every time.

OK, so now you admit you want to, alright, need to, somehow-somewhere jot down short details at the time they happen or within hours, at the most. It is that somehow-somewhere that's been the challenge - for every time you consider buying a journal to take on a vacation, your mind screams out BORING.

Today you have an exciting option. There's a unique, new journal type to buy! When yourealize what makes "new" new, you will change that scream to an enthusiastic shout FINALLY! THIS WILL BE FUN, LET'S START PLANNING A TRIP!
