Pictures and passport stamps help travelers remember details, but the feelings experienced during a trip are harder to recall with time. Travel journals offer the opportunity to record first thoughts in a new city and remember every quirky character in detail. Here are five whimsical travel journals perfect for remembering the emotions, conversations and people you can only experience while exploring.

With the Listography Travel Journal explorers can organize and record trips by making lists. In addition to prompts like “Things I Do While Traveling but Not at Home” and “Things I’ve Experienced/ Hope to Experience,” the journal also includes fun checklists and quirky illustrations. $16.95

The Ticket Stub Diary is the ideal place to store everything from museum tickets to theater pamphlets. With acid-free pages and margins big enough to write in, this diary makes it easy to see and remember favorite vacation activities. $12.00 and available on Amazon.

The Worldly Travel Planner allows wanders to plan trips on monthly calendars and has enough room for sketching or journaling. The hardcover journal is covered with pictures of iconic travel monuments while inspiring travel quotes line the inside. $14.95

The Travel Journal breaks the mold. The 64-page notebook comes with travel tips and eight-miniature scratch- off maps so one never has to search too far for a visual reminder of their trip.  $27.30 and available on Amazon.

The Journey Journal is for the crafty traveler. This slim notebook is covered in a map and includes loose string and fasteners so travelers can trace their vacation through any country. Each journal has enough space to record a two-week trip and can be customized with a map of Europe, Australia or the United States. $18.00

San Juan Better Than Ever After Hurricane Maria

It’s been almost three years since Category 5 Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico, wreaking havoc on the island and leaving most residents without electricity and clean water. Tourism, which accounts for 6.5 percent of Puerto Rico’s gross domestic product, took a beating, with hotels closed for year-long repairs, airlines cutting service and cruise lines shifting itineraries to other Caribbean destinations. Timing for the hurricane couldn’t have been worse, coming on the heels of the government’s announcement in May 2017 that it was unable to pay more than $70 billion in public debt and thus forced to file for bankruptcy. Large protests and a change of government would follow. Then, in January 2020, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake rocked the south side of the island, forcing San Juan restaurants to close while power was restored. And as we write this story, coronavirus runs rampant across the globe with severe economic implications for all destinations, including Puerto Rico.

Mix Work and Play in Bangkok

The 1985 song “One Night in Bangkok” mentions many of the overindulgences of this city. One of them is massage parlors. Today, however, a Thai massage is considered an activity that improves one’s physical and mental well-being. The city has shed its former reputation as a place of wild nightlife and decadence, over the past few decades emerging as a major center for international commerce, wellness initiatives and tourism.
