The best trips continue long after we’ve returned home: in memory, in the stories we tell, and in the ways we reorient our lives. But how do we catch in words the light above the Seine, or the way the California coastline opens us up? How do we turn sights into lasting insights and use the landscape around us to unlock the treasures within? By keeping a travel journal, we can deepen our experiences and increase present-moment awareness. Writing can help us become our truest selves.
