Hey guys, Masha here from Masha Plans.
I know with the global pandemic, traveling is a bit more difficult, but it doesn't mean we can’t at least dream about it.
In fact, with so many expenses cut, pandemic might be the perfect time to plan your dream vacation and save up for it!
Yup, today we are talking about traveling and creating a few travel-themed pages to help you enjoy your next trip.
Here is a little rundown of the supplies:
Traveler’s Journal, of course, since it’s travel-themed pages I thought this would be appropriate.
I also of course used my Acrylograph pens. With their beautiful colors, they are perfect to capture the magic and excitement of traveling.
If you ever decide to get any of Archer and Olive amazing products be sure to use code MASHA10 to get 10% off your order.
Ok, let’s get to it!
I like every new journal to start with a good quote, so I did the same for my travel pages.
This quote might not be very Covid friendly, but it really speaks to me.
I love traveling, but unfortunately, I also love buying things as well. So I’m pretty conscious of why I didn’t take some trips .
I don’t feel sorry for my choices, but I’m definitely planning to start saving more on traveling, especially now that with pandemic there isn’t much traveling to be done, I miss it even more.
TRAVEL BUCKET LIST
How will you know where to go if you don’t have the list? I found that with traveling just like with many other things, you have to have a list if you want to make it happen.
My bucket list will be filled with places I want to see in Bolivia. This is where I live at the moment and I really want to know the country better.
I’ve been living here for almost two years but we had a revolution and then the pandemic, so I’ve barely seen any of it and I definitely want to see more.
I must admit I’m pretty high maintenance. I like my nice hotels and plane flights - no backpacking and hostels for me.
This means that I need to have a savings tracker to be able to afford to take those perfect trips.
I feel like the secret to savings is just to be steady and put away even a little bit. I’m thinking of assigning each suitcase $50. It can be even less, just $10, the secret is to keep it up and it will accumulate eventually.
TRAVEL DURING THE PANDEMIC
Traveling during a worldwide pandemic is a tricky business so it’s important to know what things you need to prepare and what you have to be on the lookout for.
I gathered some very basic information here, but of course, I’ll be double-checking everything once the trip is finalized.
Of course, a packing list is a must-have for any kind of travel. And with my list, I like going a bit more creative.
I must say that I try to travel pretty light, so a one-page spread is usually enough for me. But you might consider maybe a two-page packing list if you need more stuff or packing for the entire family.
And yes, your eyes didn’t trick you - I have a separate section for puppy things to take. I finally became a doggy momma and I plan to go everywhere with my little one.
Well, at least as long as there is no flying involved, cause that would be way too stressful. But for a quick ride to the city next door - of course he’ll come with me.
Some of my favorite pages ever are memory pages - they are always so fun to create and come out being so personal and rich in emotion.
So of course, I try to create memory pages for my trips as well. Because let’s be honest - you won’t be looking back much at all the photos you saved on your phone. We hardly ever do.
If you wanna learn a bit more about creating this type of page, be sure to check a post on my blog How To: Memory Keeping In Your Bullet Journal.
PLAN WITH ME
Wanna watch me set up all those pages? Here is a little Plan With Me video.
Of course, I had to include something fun for you, and this time it’s a packing list!
I hope you like it and it will be a great first page to set you up to start planning a new adventure.
Keep Bullet Journaling and Don’t Be A Blob!
