Our travel journal was inspired by the sweet book Lovely Amelia Travels. This book is about a girl named Amelia who is being taken on her first international vacation. To celebrate, her parents get her a journal to document her travels in. The book is told from Amelia’s point of view as she goes through many awesome adventures in Costa Rica. From zip-lining, to photographing the amazing animals in the National Parks, from dancing in traditional costumes to playing fútbol, Amelia’s adventures are sure to give you the travel bug. Another thing I love about this book are the little facts sprinkled throughout, for example, did you know that in Costa Rica there are 6 active volcanoes and more than 100 sleeping or extinct ones?! Pretty cool. If you want to check out more about this book or buy a copy you can do so here.

Now we didn’t go to Costa Rica but we just got back from a cruise to Mexico, so my 5yr old and I decided to fill out a journal with some of the fun memories we had. Here’s how to put it together.
