I didn't buy a special Travel Journal - there are lots of cute ones out there, but I used a cute notebook that I received as a present from a friend a little while back. It was great, as it has an elastic band around it, which meant that my pens were always tucked in there and I never had to search for a pen! By the way, I used my Frixion pens - so great for all of my mistakes! For those of you who are new, you can read my post about these pens here.
I managed to keep the journal for a total of 4 days of our trip - this included our entire stay on Aitutaki. As you have probably gathered, I really enjoy writing. My journal entries were about 6-8 pages per day, so it was quite an investment of my time while on holiday. While I thoroughly enjoyed writing our story, I didn't want the journalling to be a chore, so when I didn't feel like doing it when we were back on Rarotonga, I simply didn't do it. It's a holiday, right? I wasn't about to beat myself up for not keeping a journal when I was on vacation!
