Travel Photo Thursday: Blast from the Travel Past

OMG. Do you remember back in the day when people still wrote on paper? I found my old journal while cleaning house last weekend and in the process

found a photo of my 18 year old self along with a disgustingly sappy journal entry. I seriously don’t know what it was all about. Vancouver, Canada circa 1999.

I actually still write on paper when I travel. Do you?

      Debbie, I was so thrilled to see how this crazy desire to write and travel started. But the sappiness and angst was just too much for me to read. I was laughing out loud after the entry.

    Wow, what a great find for you to look back at! In 1999 I moved to London and I was still writing letters then. That year I also started using email, so the letter writng soon came to an end.

    What a great find! I rarely write anything personal down when we travel (or ever, really), which is one of the reasons I was compelled to start a travel blog. One day it will be a great way to look back on all my memories. :)

    I like the photo. I also still use notebooks when traveling. Once, I forgot a notebook on a short plane ride and I got an inspiration for a poem. I begged the flight attendant for paper and she told me they didn´t have any. I ended up ripping a page out of the book I had brought!
