Tokyo Mini Album

This is a travel journal+album Lauren gave me


I jot down a few lines every evening at the hotel while I was in Tokyo, and add the rest of the stuff when I come home so the album and color pen is the only thing I bring with me


I was happy that I still remember how to write in Japanese


After I come home, I print the photos and add the maps I collected during the trip



the note was done when I was there so I won't forget when I come home



that way, I get my travel journal done as soon as I get home, it was quick and easy so I make another one following the same format, and this one is for my Europe trip, which I will be showing sometime later when I get a chance.

Oh, wow, it is GORGEOUS, Kirsty! What a great idea to bring the little album along with you to jot down the notes while it is fresh in your mind. Totally love the fun shape and size and how you can just go in later and add in the photos. SO fabulous!

Beautiful album, Kirsty, you and I have so many places in common. I was last in Tokyo in 1986. We went four times and were some of the first visitors to Tokyo Disneyland. I did not learn to write Japanese, just learned a few words, but I enjoyed Tokyo and Kyoto.
