What to Collect
Collecting items for your Pack This Journal is up to you. This is your notebook, so do what you want with it! You can collect anything you want, but here are a few ideas to collect along your journey.
No matter where you go around the world, if you are going on a BIG trip, a plane is usually involved. And as you start your journey, and have you Pack This Journal in tow, make sure you start with adding your plane ticket. it is the first step in this amazing adventure, so glue it in (after landing, of course) and get ready for an amazing adventure.
These are the old school way for you, your friends and family to remember your journey. But if you still love postcards -grab 'em and glue 'em in! What makes the place iconic? You can probably find a postcard for that!
BUSINESS CARDS OF PEOPLE OR PLACES
Business cards are an easy thing to grab as you're leaving a particular business, restaurant, shop or from a person you met in one of these locations. Business cards often have address and logos on them - perfect to job your memory if you ever want to go back again!
You spend a lot time planning a getaway. Why not remember the little details of the trip? Where were you on a particular day? Where did you stayed? What car rental company did you use? All can be saved for eternity in the Pack This Journal.
COASTERS FROM BARS AND RESTAURANTS
Just like business cards and receipts, coasters can be an excellent addition to the Pack This Journal. Often embossed with a restaurants logo and address, you can remember the best meal of the trip (or remember where you spent a night buying the bar a round of drinks).
TRAIN AND BUS TICKETS
Just as you would keep a plane ticket, keep those train and bus tickets are excellent and meaningful additions to the Pack This Journal. They help you remember the the little trips within a trip that took you where you need to go. Save them all and add them to your journal.
FOOD AND SOUVENIR RECEIPTS
Receipts. You get them with just about anything you buy. Great meals, interesting souvenirs, awesome drinks. Instead of crumpling them up and tossing them, save them in your Pack This Journal. it never hurts to remember your best meal from a trip!
Oh the little things. Visa documents can be a real pain to compile. Eventually, you may get that visa or paperwork back. Save it! Those random countries get a coveted passport stamp, why not save the documents that got you there in the first place.
PRESSED LEAVES OR FLOWERS
Maybe you are more of a nature collector. Finding those beautiful leaves or flowers from a trip are a great add-on to the Pack This Journal. Adding an even more sentimental touch to your journal, these natural items will remind you of the beauty that is traveling.
