My 2019 UK and Ireland Pack This Journal

I’m back from my whirlwind trip to Ireland and the United Kingdom (Dublin and the entire south part of Ireland, Manchester, England and Glasgow, Scotland to be precise). To say the trip went quickly would be an understatement, and i can’t wait to share more details with you. We took 6 planes, a 2 trains, and a rented (upgraded) Jaguar. Planes, trains and automobiles indeed!

Today I got asked if I would be willing to share the inside of my journal, and I thought this was interesting. In today’s instagram perfect world, I think people assume my journals must be really fancy. But let me tell you, they are not! As you can see: I’m not artistic! But that’s the point of the Pack This Journal It’s not to instagram perfect. It’s to be there to collect all your favorite memories from your trip - in any way you want. I look back on this and smile, because so many memories and moments are connected to those random receipts, colorful postcards,and expensive entry tickets. It doesn’t have to be perfect to be meaningful
