When you first wake up in the morning, take some time to write in your travel journal. Do not get out of bed, get coffee, eat breakfast or turn on the TV. Reach for your writing utensil and begin journaling. Some of our best thoughts, dreams, memories, and ideas are floating around our brain when we first wake.
Put the pen to the page and do not stop writing until you have filled two pages. Do not bother to edit yourself; just let your thoughts float onto the page. Then close your journal and do not read through that section for several days.
The benefit of this type of journaling is that it will allow you to record your freshest thoughts about your trip and the impression it is leaving upon your life.
