When I travel, especially on overseas trips, I journal my memories in a pretty notebook. BUT, to really make it easy, I prepare a few things in advance. First, I tape a very small calendar of the month in which I am traveling on the inside cover of the book. In addition, I tape an envelope, open side
out on the inside cover. ( I use it to put family photos or little notes or receipts. In the back of the book I make several pages of sticky notes. I stick one at the bottom of the page, move up
a little and place another one and so on until I get a column. This is great for grabbing and jotting a quick thought and sticking it on my journal page until I have more time to write. Preparing the journals in advance gets me excited about the upcoming trip and I'm all organized!
