One of my favorite things to do is to travel or going on short adventures around my city. There are even studies that show travel and camping can help with depression. I know after going through a year of pandemic lock downs how important it is for one’s mental health to get out of the house. I also happen to be a daily journaling practitioner. For these reasons when I heard about a journal specifically made for travelers and adventurers I knew I had to feature it on my blog. This is such a great idea! The company, Scrapbook Trails, tag line is “Every Adventure Should Be Remembered.” Make this slogan a reality and support Nick (The Founder) on Kickstarter today.

The Ultimate Adventure Journal

Human beings weren’t simply were’t made to stay inside all day and stare at a screen, working the day away. We weren’t simply to strive for inbox zero, winning the e-mail whack and mole game. When I’m on vacation I often take notes in a journal. New ideas often come to mind and I write them down. A journal specifically designed to take on travel adventures and camping trips is pure genius. It’s not simply writing random thoughts down on page, the journal guides you with a series of writing prompts. The journal was created by Nick of Scrapbook Trails which was founded by true adventurers. It shows with their thoughtful approach to this journal. The ultimate goal of this journal is to write down all the wonderful experiences you’ll have while traveling and time spent in nature. You’ll be able to enjoy these memories for years to come. I think travel puts you in a different mindset so your normal day to day journal will read much differently than a travel journal. This Camping and Travel Logbook will inspire you to continuing traveling and exploring nature further. It gives you a keepsake after every outing you undertake.

Sometimes I don’t always write down the experiences I have while traveling. This journal will change that. All your adventures will be remembered. Not just in photos with your cell phone, but now you will remember your thoughts and feelings. I’m definitely going to put in an order for this journal when it comes out.

More About The Journal

“This journal is absolutely perfect for experienced campers, new adventures, RV or Van lifers, or anyone who loves to be organized with their camping adventure experiences.” The founder of the journal from Scrapbook Trails has a love for camping and travel. He began to notice that he’d experience amazing memories, but months later they become a bit foggier. He knew there must be some way to document one’s travel experiences other than the traditional methods.

“This journal features space for 25 adventure entries along with a DIY table of contents for proper organization. In each journal entry section, you will find a detailed checklist, thought-provoking and deep journal prompts, free form journaling pages, and a page for photos or artwork. This journal also comes complete with a beautiful matte hardcover design, Scrapbook Trails Trip Tips, an outlined map of the United States, 20 tearable ruled scratch pages, a bookmark string, an elastic book band, and a convenient folder pocket in the back.” A big selling feature of this journal is that it’s Eco friendly. The 120gsm thick paper is made wood free and all material for the book are purchased through Eco-friendly suppliers.

Journal Sections include:

– Checklists
– Journaling
– Photos and Artwork
– Extra including a pocket, bookmark string, and elastic band.

Journal Facts:

– Made in the USA
– Hardcover
– Trip tips
– DIY Table Of Contents

What Are The Rewards?

Yes, I’m happy to report there are lots of great rewards or just donate because you believe in the company or product. $5 donates to the cause. $20 gets you a PDF of the journal, sticker, and name in credits. The reward that I think most people should go for is the $40 level because this gets you a copy of the actual physical journal. The top reward at the time of writing is $450 and this gets you all the rewards mentioned above plus T-Shirts and personal thank you note.


The prototype of the journal has already been produced, it’s ready to go. The Ultimate Adventure Journal is waiting to be ordered and will be ready to be shipped to backers and customers 3 weeks after the Kickstarter has ended. Nick on his Kickstarter has been working constantly over the past few months. Help make Nick of Scrapbook Trails dream a reality support and pick up the Ultimate Adventure Journal today.

Recent Trip to Bali, Indonesia – Thoughts

Recent Trip to Bali, Indonesia – Thoughts

I recently top a trip to Bali, Indonesia. I went to see friends from the states that are staying in Bali for a year. The trip was only for 3 weeks, but I feel I had experiences that will forever change my perspective on life.

There are few times in life where you really put yourself out there. I feel once you do there are rewards to be had you rarely will find anytime else. Getting to Bali required sitting for 20 hours on the air plane and/or inside an airport. I think that right there would stop a lot of people from taking the journey to Indonesia.

Bali Trip

This type of breathtaking view is common in Bali, Indonesia

Upon arriving my friends were no where in site. I was met at the airport with heat, humidity, and a barrage of people asking me if there could carry my bags or give me a ride in their taxi. I went to an Internet Cafe and luckily they sent me an e-mail assuring me the were stuck in traffic and on there way. They arrived about 45 minutes later.

The Bali adventure began… I will blog about Bali more in the future, but here are some brief thoughts I take away from the trip.

– There is a lot we take for granite in the United States

– Architecture is way more interesting in Bali. Makes most of our construction design look boring and cheap. I think this has to do with the availability of inexpensive labor in Bali.

– People frequently act entitled in the US (Including myself from time-to-time)

– We have great medical facilities in the US

– I prefer driving a car to a motor bike

– Countries are kind of like closed, homogeneous systems. Laws & customs make countries the same. For example almost every suburb in the US looks like almost every suburb in the US. McDonald’s in Texas looks like a McDonald’s in California. In order to have a drastically different experience customs, laws, cultures, building codes, have to be different.

– Had to get used to crossing the street and driving on the left side of the road

– Language barrier was very easy to overcome

– People follow traffic laws in the US

– Food is cheap in Bali

– Gas in cheap in Bali. $2 (US) per liter to fill up motorbike

– Rent a motor bike cheap. Cost was $35 (US) for about 10 days

– Things that we consider “Luxuries” in the US are very common and cheap in Bali. For example massages, maids, drivers, personal trainers, personal shoppers, contractors, property, mechanics, etc. are all dirt cheap when comparing them to US.

– There are no fat people in Bali. May be 1 out of 100 people are fat. This was shocking coming from the US where by comparison most people are overweight.

– Frequent stories of robberies in Bali among my friends. I however always felt safe and did not experience anything.

– Many people have giant walls that project their homes. Some even put broken glass on the top of the wall to prevent people from climbing over.

– Tons of dogs. Stray dogs hang out in the neighborhood, on the beach, inside restaurants. They are all over Bali, some stray some have owners.

– The Balinese people are very friendly and welcoming

– People in general seem very open, even tourists. At least in my area of the US breaking into social groups and getting to know people is much more difficult.

– There aren’t many Americans who vacation in Bali. You are somewhat of a rarity compared to the large number of Australians.

I could go on and on with this list. For now I will leave it there.

I used to wonder what the appeal was of travelling. Don’t get me wrong I’ve travelled in the past, just not as far away or different as Bali. I think I finally figured it out on this trip. It’s not so much the destination, but the people you meet along the way. I met a lot of great people on my trip to Indonesia that I will remember for the rest of my life and hopefully have the pleasure of meeting again. People that opened my eyes on what being an international citizen really means. The closest thing my trip to Bali reminds me of is going off to college. You have no idea what to expect,  but when you open yourself up to the experience you form friendships that will last a lifetime. Unfortunately the trip was only 3 weeks, in that time I was beginning to make good friends. That’s the downside of travelling, the leaving, starting a life then uprooting from the new life. May be making friends in other parts of the world changes your perspective that the true nature of reality is that you are a citizen of this world, of this planet, and we are all in this together.
