I have been getting a lot of questions lately about the Pack This Journal and my affiliation with it. Many people asked if this was sponsored content! HECK NO! Please know I rarely do any sponsored content on the blog, unless it totally and completely aligns with my mission of promoting and supporting female travel in some way. But this, in particular, is very important for me to share with you.
The Pack This Journal has truly been on my heart for over 10 years now, but finally came to fruition during July 2017. While attending WDS in Portland, Oregon (I will be back this year!), a dear friend of mine suggested I consider making my own journal after reading my article in The Huffington Post. From there, an idea was born and has grown into something so much more than I could have ever imagined. The original idea of the journal has changed and evolved a little, but that is to be expected as you create something from scratch. Who knows what the next iteration will be.
You can read more about the details of the journal here.
The story (in a short video!)
But why did I ultimately decide to create the Pack This Journal instead of just finding one that was on the market? Well, I did that for awhile but finally decided instead of looking and hoping, I started creating. I made a short video below introducing myself, the background of the journal, and why I decided to make a journal at all.
The Pack This Journal was created with you in mind! It is meant think of everything you need in advance. A pocket to hold your stuff, a small pen for you to use on the go, and the reusable glue dots to stick in items as you travel. PLUS you can customize the cover and map in any way you want. Write your name, draw the places.
This is the journal I always searched for, and now I am excited to share it with you.
If this seems like sponsored content: IT’S NOT! I truly love this journal, and think you will too. Whether you are going on your first solo trip, or 5th trip around the globe, I can’t wait to see what you collect.
My idea to build a like-minded, meaningful community around travel only continues to grow, and I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for me and this journal. Barnes and Noble? Campus bookstores? Airpot kiosks? TV? Only time will tell, and I know this is just the beginning. Thank you for being along for the ride!
