Summer Travel Scrapbook Ideas {100 Days of Summer Scrapbook Ideas! Day 12}

Are you planning on traveling this summer? Here are a few travel scrapbook ideas from my Hawaii trip scrapbook and my old favorite – the Aruba honeymoon scrapbook from 2003 :).

Travel Scrapbook Ideas:

  • If you fly, save the flight pattern map from the magazine on the airplane to show the route you took.
  • Save your baggage claim tickets – especially if they’re pink ;).
  • Record how many miles to your destination.
  • Write about how you traveled (by car, plane, train, etc). If possible, include a picture of the vehicle you traveled in.
  • Consider adding embellishments like globes, maps, a compass or the flag of the country you visited.

Do you have some travel scrapbook ideas? Please share them in the comments section – I would love to have some more great ideas for my travel scrapbooks :)!

    Jess, I have stuff my grandparents saved from their honeymoon in 1930: the invoice from the hotel (which lists that he got her roses), train tickets, an envelope provided by the railroad containing 3 of the roses, pressed flat (and a ribbon), a check (remember when banks returned the check to you after it was cashed?) that was used to pay for something, though I don’t know what. It was really neat to see these things, esp. since they’re so old now. So I would add receipts for special purchases, pressed flowers, hotel stationery. These things might seem mundane now but think of how they’ll look when you show them to your grandkids in the future when we make payments by scanning our retinas and no one under the age of 40 remembers ever receiving a paper receipt for payment.

      That is sooooo cool that you have those things!! I totally agree that things that seem ordinary now will be interesting and special in the future! They’re little clues to what life was like, that might have otherwise been forgotten :).

    Oh, I agree—save everything! I save menus (if possible), napkins with the restaurant’s name on it, business cards, brochures from the hotels, maps of our treks around the area, pictures from travel brochures, examples of “foreign” money, receipts, the list goes on and on! I even have a little zip-lock baggie with sand in it from a special beach. We also save bottle labels, whether it’s alcohol or soft drinks!

      Brenda, you have so many great ideas!! I love that these things serve as reminders of special memories, but they also tell you about different places in the country or world, and it’s so neat to have the actual physical memorabilia from unique places you may never have a chance to visit again :)!

    Jess,if you travel to a foreign country, be sure to take pictures of street signs, save anything (shopping bag labels, etc.) that is in the language. Don’ forget signage in train stations or bus depots, or airports. Also pick up tourist brochures in that language and in English, and post them side by side in your scrapbook! I also follow directions on scrapping blogs to make a paper bag pocket page, and use it for storage of things I don’t want to cut up. The possibilities are endless! I’m going to France this fall, and am already prepping my journal to take with us. And write, write, write–doesn’t have to be a whole page–just a few lines, a top-10 list, a bulleted list will do.Include the WHOLE trip, from planning, to packing, to traveling, to return.

    I’ve also done the sand thing.. I’ve just spent some months travelling in Australia and New Zealand.. I collected some sand from a couple of special beaches and have incorporated it into my scrapbook designs: spread some PVA glue on the page and sprinkle the sand on before adding photos, shells etc. makes it even more personal :) I also bought blank postcards and re-wrote bits from my diary on them on particularly special days and put these in my designs.. its what i would have written to myself if I was sending a postcard at the time!

      Wow, that’s a really cool idea for using sand!!! I loooove using postcard in my scrapbook too :)!! Thanks so much for sharing your ideas :)!!
