Journals for the Road Junky

Record your travel experiences the old-fashioned way

Tired of blogging your personal thoughts for the rest of the world to see? After all, not everything in your head is meant for public consumption.

Travel JournalingTravel JournalingMaybe it's time to journal your travel thoughts, the way you did way back when. Don't get your knickers in a knot. We're not suggesting a pink butterfly diary with a lock that you tuck between mattresses for safe keeping.

The new generation of journals are sleek, hip and built to stand up to the trials of travel. We admit, they don't come with a lock and a key, but unless you're still worried about your brother spilling your secrets you should be fine.

Scully Equestrian Pocket Journal: Just the right size and bound in a beautiful leather cover that looks better the more trips you take. And it comes with a "Simple as That" lifetime warranty. Nice. $37.99USD

Leelanau Trading Co. Leather Ring Binder Extra Large Journal: Face it, sometimes you want a big journal that feels as good to write in as what you write. It's leather bound and has a 3-ring binder so adding pages is a snap. We love it because it's actually large enough for detailed sketches and maps. $52USD.

Nomad Hiking Journal w/case: Made for the adventure traveler, this journal comes with a case and detailed pages for quick entries. Tick lists, currency exchanges and recommendations for guide books are great but we especially love the waterproof case. $27USD.

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
  • On How to Choose a Cruise Ship Cabin on Your Next Cruise, Tinu said "Thank you for this post! I was dragging my feet about going on a cruise. Now that I know there's such a thing as a balcony cabin, I can't wait to book a trip!"
