I love travel journals, my bedside drawer is full of them documenting my journeys. Often I will look back at them and reminisce about the good old days and it is surprising how much you actually forget. I am grateful that I wrote every day while I was backpacking around the world as now I have these precious journals to transport me back to my travelling days.
The first travel journal I kept was in the late 80’s when I went to Darwin. The excitement of my first plane ride and exploring new sites. Back then children could go into the cockpit to see the view out the window, the pilot also gave us a run down on the switches and what they were used for. Sadly now times have changed with terrorism and our children will not get these opportunities.
It is interesting looking back at my Ansett boarding pass as the airline is no longer around. There is also a packet of pepper with the Ansett logo in my diary, I wonder if that will be worth some money one day! We dined at Holtze Cottage Botanical Gardens and being a young girl from the bush I was blown away that they pull out the chairs for you and put the napkin on your lap. I was not used to this five star treatment that you only see in the movies! I remember thinking how expensive our dinner was and looking at the bill a porterhouse steak was $16 which seems cheap now days.
I love that I can be transported back to my 11 year old self and look at how I saw the world back then. A happy time filled with wonderful family memories.
