Do you ever find yourself daydreaming about living in another country? Or do you ever think back to times when you traveled to fun and exciting places, wishing to return?
Those are the kinds of thoughts that go through my mind as I put together my photos in my travel journal. I love flipping through the pages to remind me of memories I had abroad and during travels in the U.S. Lately, I’ve been daydreaming of my life back in Spain when I studied abroad—taking a class all about the impact of study abroad doesn’t help this! But today, I wanted to share bits and pieces of my experience in Europe through my travel journal. Last week, I showed you Part 1, with an inside look into some of my favorite pages of my travel diary. This week is all about places in Europe—especially Spain and Italy!
From Sevilla to Barcelona, I love putting together images that remind me of these places. I included a map of Barcelona, an old Spanish stamped envelope (that I bought at a street market, specifically for scrapbooking purposes!), and photos of my favorite Barcelona architecture and my favorite places in Sevilla. For the Italy pages, I included parts of a poster of Venice, my Roma Pass I bought to travel around the city conveniently, and a business card of a cute boutique (that was actually in Santorini, Greece).
Have you all ever visited Spain or Italy? How does traveling inspire you to get creative?
