The Traveling Journal is a fun and easy way to connect long distance friends. In four simple steps you’ll be ready to start a new tradition and begin creating a priceless illustration of your friendship.
Purchase one of our lovely, handmade journals. Enhance The Traveling Journal experience by assigning colored pens to each person, tracking your journal’s journey with a Roadmap Sticker and building excitement with Preview Postcards.
Establish your group of friends. It can be high school friends, college buddies, or maybe family members. Heck, it could even be between you and one other person if you’re in a long distance relationship. Determine an order you want the journal to travel and pick up a Buddy Bookmark so everyone knows where to send The Traveling Journal.
You’re now ready to create! Start The Traveling Journal however you want, we started ours with a cheesy poem. You can keep it simple or get creative with photos and designs. Get some help with free printable pages.
Let the journey begin. We know you’re busy and that’s why we designed The Traveling Journal to fit in a small flat rate box from the US Postal Service. So when you’re done leaving your mark in The Traveling Journal, send it on its way. Remember—The Traveling Journal doesn’t belong to one person. It belongs to all of you collectively as a group. Keep the journal as long as you need to, but you should never intend on keeping the journal. And after the journal has made a complete loop back to you, you’ll be able to see your friendship story take shape in The Traveling Journal you share.
