If you are using a Bullet Journal purely as a Travel Journal then you are going to be using a few different bullet journal pages to a normal setup. 

Your collections and pages in your Travel Journal can be made to suit your unique style of travel and even your adventure.

Here are some ideas about what pages will be useful in a travel bullet journal.


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 


How to create a vision board in your bullet journal


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.

How To Use A Bullet Journal Habit Tracker

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
  • Accommodation
  • 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

To-do List For Bujo

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 the dates they need to be completed.

Make sure all of these tasks are actionable by putting them into your normal bullet journal spreads, such as your daily or weekly, is a great way of making sure you do them all in a timely manner. No mad rush a day or two before you leave!

Some things you may want to add to your vacation to-do list:

  • Book leave from work
  • Research and book transport such as flights, buses, airport transfers.
  • Look up and book accommodation
  • Find and book any local tours or experiences you want to do
  • Make sure Passport and any other travel documents are current
  • Exchange money into local currency or plan a travel card
  • Create a packing list
  • Pack
  • Get travel adapters
  • Work out how you are going to use your phone overseas. Roaming or local SIM card
  • Organize for any house or pet sitting you may need
  • Organize bills that need to be paid while you are away. 
  • Create a Travel Plan

Packing List

One of the easiest ways to make sure you don’t overpack is to create a packing list!

Think about where you are going, research what the average temperatures are for the time of year you are going, and consider the activities you will be doing there. 

Some tips for packing light are:

  • Choosing neutral color schemes for your clothing so you can mix and match items
  • Layer instead of carrying bulky jacks etc
  • Leave any “might need” items. If you are unsure you will wear heels, leave them behind and instead pack some cute ballet flats that are comfortable for doing city walks and can still be worn for an evening out.

Travel Information Page

It’s easy to lose paperwork and emails with all your flight details, layovers or accommodation. Instead, as you book and confirm details add them to a special Bullet Journal page. 

This way you know exactly what time things are, and where you are meant to be.
