Traveling is a wonderful activity that can add countless value and pleasure to your life, but it can also be a complicated and hectic affair. A travel journal can help you to organize and streamline your travel plans to make them more efficient and enjoyable. Since I love traveling and never go anywhere without my paper planner, you know I love a good printable. I’ve made a travel planner to help you with your adventures this summer, and your new accessory on your journey is MTN DEW®!
Family Dollar has the new limited edition packaging that features all 50 states for the DEWnited States Collection! I was able to find bottles for Florida, New York, and Nebraska. The colorful labels are so much fun! I saw the MTN DEW® 20oz bottles, and the Florida one is going to be a new staple on my trip!
The DEWnited States series will celebrate DEW® Nation by creating unique, collectible state bottle graphics! Plus, there’s a NEW flavor, MTN DEW® Liberty Brew™ ! It’s an unbelievable flavor experience. With a distinctly bold flavor and intense refreshment, it’s the go-to drink for our summer travels. I love the refreshing citrus kick, and there is also a DIET MTN DEW® too! Will you try MTN DEW® Liberty Brew™?

Travel Journal Inspiration
When DEW® is on hand, it means good times are going to be had by all. DEW® aims to fuel that opportunity every single day.
I love how Florida, my home state, shows off our wildlife living their best lives! An alligator and a shark enjoying the sunshine… while New York shows off a famous landmark from the DUMBO neighborhood. I have visited both states, and they have helped me check off my plan to visit all 50 states. While I may not be able to visit all fifty soon, I find it fun to look for the variety of bottles to bring home a taste of each state. Since each label is designed with inspiration from locally relevant landmarks, it’s a small taste of each destination.
When you plan your excursions this year, don’t forget to bring along a journal.
Sketch the Area: If your travel adventures take you to foreign countries or regions, consider using a travel journal as a way of creating your own color-coded map of the area. You can sketch a basic outline of the city or region and place familiar landmarks you’ve visited, city streets you’ve walked, or other useful information on the sketch to help you to navigate the city.
You can even use colored markers or pencils to color in specific areas of the city to coincide with specific emotions, events, or tourist attractions.
Organize Your Journey. Sometimes, a vacation can turn into more of a journey with many different stops, flights, and overnight stays. If you happen to find yourself booking flights and hotels for multiple locations, it might benefit you to turn your travel journal into an organizational planner to keep you on track. You can lay out your flight details including departure gates, list out your hotel names and addresses, gather the names and phone numbers of local taxicab companies, and even make a list of things you’ll need on your flight as a reminder to yourself.
Customize Your Itinerary. Trips and vacations can often consist of many different plans to complete, places to visit, and deadlines to which you must adhere. Should you find yourself traveling with a long list of things to do, try using your travel journal to keep track of your plans and destinations. Make a list of the restaurants, coffee shops, and local stores you’d like to visit while you’re in a particular area. You can also keep track of all of the tourist destinations you want to see along with their hours of operation, admission cost, and address for easy navigation and planning.
Make A Travel Log. If you’re a frequent traveler who loves to plan vacations that take you to places you’ve never been to before, try turning your journal into a customized travel log. You can compose a dynamic composition of pages that outline the places you’ve visited, the activities you enjoyed there, your favorite restaurants, and your best memories. This will help you to keep track of where you’ve been so that you can plan to visit a new city or country on your next vacation.
Create A Souvenir Travel Book. It’s only human nature to want to bring home souvenirs of your adventures to keep with you as tokens of those wonderful memories. If you’ve begun to collection delicate or small souvenirs such as tickets, pamphlets, or other small items from your travels, consider consolidating them into a travel-themed scrapbook. You can add borders to the pictures, write descriptions to explain the souvenirs, and even draw or sketch on the pages to add personality and beauty.
