What’s In My Scrapbook

During my study abroad experience, I cataloged my memories and experiences using a scrapbook. I’ve recently completed it and I love sharing it with people and reliving those precious moments. Here are some bits and pieces I put in my travel scrapbook for those considering to make their own:

I order my scrapbooks chronologically, so if you were to look in my scrapbook, my trip to New York would be first. For each destination, I have three components: what I call “bits and pieces,” text of what I did and personal photographs (4-10 depending on the length of the trip). My favorite parts are the bits and pieces, which include:

  • Postcards
  • Concert/ event tickets
  • Transport tickets
  • Museum tickets/ maps
  • City maps
  • Attraction pamphlets
  • Business cards (restaurants, hostels, etc.)
  • Wristbands
  • Receipts (for an especially good meal)

Basically, I keep everything I collect on a trip and sort through it once I get home and decide what would look best in my scrapbook. I also cut down the maps and other thick documents to the front page so my scrapbook doesn’t get too thick. I love my scrapbook, my only regret is not holding out for a bigger one as I would have liked all my adventures to be in one big scrapbook rather than two smaller ones.
