Bullet Journal Travel Ideas
I think the best travel journal is a mix between a travel diary and a pre-trip organizer.
Planning for a trip can be very exciting and keeping all those details together with a log of what happens on your adventure is a brilliant way of treasuring every moment and experience about your trip.
Bujo Vision Board
The best way to make dreams and goals happen is to create a vision board.
Having a visual tool to look at whenever you need some motivation to save or get booking flights is a great way to prompt action and keep your goals at the front of your mind.
We show you how to make a Vision board for your Bullet Journal here.
Some ideas on what to put on your board are:
- Images of your destination ( you can get these from travel brochures or online)
- Words about how your vacation will make you feel
- Motivating sayings and travel quotes.
- Your goals. So maybe the places you want to visit in your destination, foods you want to try and new experiences you want to have.
Savings Tracker For Bullet Journal
Often one of the first steps for any adventure is saving up to go!
Creating a bujo savings tracker is a great way to keep motivated to get those funds for your trip.
Work out how much you need for your trip then work backward from the date you need those travel funds by to the date you start saving.
Remember to save for:
- Flights or transport to your destination
- Travel documents you may need like passports or visas
- Spending money
- Special travel gear you need for the trip ( like hiking boots or a new camera)
- Activities you want to do during your trip like tours

Creating an ongoing to-do list is vital for a well-organized vacation. Make sure you leave room to add new tasks as you think of them, as well as dates they need to be completed by.
