One of the first things I like to do is create a wish list of the places I’d like to visit. I like to go by countries at first, and then narrow down to cities afterwards.Use colorful pens* to make this luggage spread. (via Pin image)
A very visual (yet also time-consuming) way to showcase the places you want to visit, and also a way to track where you’ve been, is to draw a world map and mark accordingly. (via @christina77star)
If you check out my bullet journal hacks post, you can find the no-fail method to making complicated drawings perfect using a genius tool.
Travel quotesHand letter some inspirational travel quote during your planning phases to get you motivated about turning your dream travels into reality. (via Pin image)
And then, start brainstorming. A spread like this gives you space to put all the major details to paper: when you’d like to travel, where you’d like to go, with whom, motivations for traveling, and what places you plan to visit and things you’d like to do while there. (via @journal.jungle)
Just write what comes to mind, then focus on narrowing down your options later.
As your planning, it’ll help to be able to differentiate your notes. Use free bullet journal vacation stickers like these to make it easy to spot your notes.
This set includes weather trackers, a flight info box, to do list, packing list, and 7-day itinerary. (via 3 Years Apart)
Trip planning overviewNow it’s time to get into more of the nitty gritty. Research flights, lodging, ground transportation, activities and things to do, food, budget breakdown, etc. (via @emschwartzrdn)
Packing listYou’ll also need to make a packing list. Divide by category of items, like clothing, personaly hygiene, electronics, etc, to make it easier to check if you’re missing anything or not. (via @maryj13)
Places to visit and things to doIf your packing list is short enough, you can combine with your list of things to do. Add some themed drawings or bullet journal doodles for bonus points. (via Pin image)
Simple travel itineraryA simple spread like this is perfect for creating a list of things you’d like to accomplish each day, but not necessarily lock yourself in to a schedule for it. (via Pin image)
Travel itinerary with weatherA minimalist spread like this has a simple country outline, transit schedule, itinerary, list of activities and places to eat, and even a weather tracker. (via @creativithee)
Travel schedule time block
Or if you want to be more detailed in your planning, then you can do a block schedule like this, which you may already be familiar with if you use your bullet journal for school.
This is particularly useful for study abroad, group trips or tours, or even if you have a lot of events with specific times. (via Blossoms and Bullet Journals)
Top-rated placesFor me, the food is where it’s at. Whether you’re a coffee aficionado or an ice cream addict (hey-yo, hand raised), a list like this will show you the eats that are close by. Visit one, a few, or all. (via @inkbyjeng)
Vacation savings tracker
All right, now that you have all the spots you’d like to hit up, you can probably gauge how much the trip is going to cost you. And then you gotta start saving. Here’s a vacation-themed savings tracker.

Pre-trip checklist and to-do list of tasksThere are also things you’ll need to take care of in preparation for your trip, so creating a schedule will help you plan out when to tackle these things to avoid last-minute stressful situations, or forgetting important things. (via @breeeberry)
Trip countdown trackerAnd because it’s fun to, why not have a countdown tracker to build up that anticipation for your travels? (via Pin image)
Travel diary and memories list
When you’re on your trip, you’ll be creating lots of memories! Capture them in your bullet journal so you can look back on those good times.
This spread uses an instant camera* and star ratings (via Pin image)
Trip planning and memories page in oneOr if you want to be efficient with your bullet journal, you can turn a trip planning page into a memories one simply by adding the doodles of your highlights for any particular part of your getaway. (via @honey.owl)
Trip memorabilia collection pageA great idea is to collect a certain kind of item in every place that you visit. If it’s suitable, you can keep it in your bullet journal, like this stamps collection, ticket stubs or tea bags are other ideas that can fit easily into your bujo. (via @banjobaby83)
Souvenir listAnd don’t forget to track souvenirs! Let your loved ones know that you thought of them while you were away on your adventures. (via Journaling Addict)
And that concludes this quick tour of creative travel journal ideas to add to your bujo for when you plan your next adventure. Happy adventuring!
