Unusual notebooks according to inspiration
Collections of sands or land
This travel diary format is very atypical. A pinch of sand from each diving area or beach visited… The realization is quite simple: provide small bags in zippable plastic; during your shipments, take a sample, trying to limit the presence of large grains or other residues, and choosing dry sands, in plain sun – this will save you from waiting for them to dry, and possibly suffering the smell of microorganisms that decompose! The sand sample is then re-placed on the cardboard page of the notebook, before being fixed by a square of large transparent tape. A comment will usefully recall the sampling area. To your scissors! –
The box of curiosities
The principle is to collect and gather in a dedicated box a mini cabinet of curiosities. Each item must be significant to the country visited. It may be necessary to draw up a descriptive list of the objects collected which will provide information on their nature and provenance, so as not to lose the memory and meaning of the collection. For example, you will be able to find in my curiosity box polar bear hair, crude oil from Azerbaijan, gems from Namibia, fossils from Spitsbergen, teeth of sharks from South Africa picked up in the underwater sanctuary of Aliwal Shoal near living sharks, badges of the Russian army, minerals from different countries , the still hot basalt of the last eruption of the Piton de la Fournaise, a crab leg from Cuba…
Notebooks to buy in bookstores
Printed Travel Diaries
This travel diary format is the most classic. A book, with printed pages each dedicated to a country, allows you to keep your best "physical" memories, such as plane tickets, entrance tickets to sites or museums, and other pieces of paper that have marked your journey. –
The principle is inspired by scratch games; using your nail or a piece, you scratch the metallic surface of the countries visit to make them appear. All formats exist, from the collection of maps by continent, to the more global map (see below). –
Purists will like the large rolled card version, but there is also a version (my favorite) in the form of several boards, each dedicated to a continent, accompanied by a travel diary. –
The boxed tables "To see once in a lifetime"
The principle on which these travel diaries are based are those of the calendar of the front, with boxes to open. Each country visiting allows you to open a new box, revealing the photo of a monument or site. –
Flag pins and cork cards
Flag card pins are perfect for marking places on maps such as places visited, places to visit, favorite cities, etc… The card can be glued to a cork board, to obtain a decorative wall card. There are also already printed ones, with a certain design!
To plant your flag card pins and to mark the places visited or to be visited soon, or the favorite cities, opt for a world map printed on a cork board, very design. —
Another possibility: plant your small flags on a cork globe. This cork mini globe is perfect for locating your travels: march the places you have visited or plan your next adventure.
