Dear Parent,

Thank you for downloading this 26-prompt travel journal. I encourage you to take a

look at it and print out extra prompts that may need more than one for a longer trip.

Here are some suggestions:

D - The dining out prompt can be for a favorite meal of the trip, a favorite meal of the day or every

meal of the trip. Print out as many copies as you think you'd need.

F - The facts and figures are a great way to introduce kids to know a new place, but for places with

multiple stops, print out one for each stop.

H - Print out one for each hotel.

I - The itinerary prompt is meant to be for one day. You might not want to do one day only, so print

out multiples to cover multiple days.

K - Keepsakes and collectibles will probably take up more than one page. Print out more or use

blank paper for found items.

W - I love tracking weather and if there are any budding meteorologists in the family they might

love having more than one day of tracking in their travel journal.

This journal was made in conjunction with a blogging A-Z series of posts, to read

background and tips for each prompt check out this post:

think they'd be interested in a copy for themselves.
