If Anne Frank hadn't recorded her days in the pages of a diary, we may never have known the truth about concentration camps. Che Guevara wouldn't have inspired millions of people to go on a soul-searching road trip if he hadn't kept a travel journal, which was later published as a book The Motorcycle Diaries.
Planning your first solo trip, taking a sabbatical to see the world or travelling with friends and family - the one thing you need to carry with you is a travel journal and your passport, of course. Travelling lets you experience new things and gives you time to reflect on life. No matter where you decide to travel, these beautiful memories need to be documented.
