Hey there Life Scribers! A new month is upon us and that means it’s time for a new topic. This month we will be talking about ways to tell our travel stories. July is an appropriate time to do this since so many people seem to be bitten by the travel bug during the summer months. This month’s prompts coincide with the latest release to The Story Collection, The TRAVEL Story.
Let’s first talk about what kind of traveler you are. Is your dream to travel far and wide or do you prefer to stay closer to home? Have you traveled extensively already or are you looking kick off your travel plans in the future? Think about your travel dreams.
Where Do You Want To Go?
My scrapbooking friends who love lists will like this prompt. ;)
I remember talking with my husband one day about making some travel plans. We started talking about destinations and I started rattling off a whole list of places I wanted to see. Up until that moment, I never realized that I had a travel bucket list in my head, but I did. What destinations are on your travel bucket list? Scrap that list! Have you already seen some of the places that were on that mental list? Scrap a page with two lists…where you’ve been and what places that are still left to be seen.
For those of you that enjoy more involved journaling, talk about why the locations on your list made it there. Rome, Tuscany and Venice are on my list. I want to see Rome because I’m fascinated with Roman history and I want to see things like the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and the baths. Traveling to Tuscany, for me, is all about food, wine and seeing the Italian countryside. Venice beckons me to take a gondola ride and take in the art and architecture.
On your pages, consider explaining why these destinations made it onto your bucket list. These stories also make a great companion to the pages you scrap after you see various places. Did you get to experience the things that you intended? Plus, it’s fertile ground to deepen the stories and share how your travel experiences lived up to your expectations.
Next week I’ll be back with another take on scrapping travel pages. Until then, have a fantastic week!
