Essentials: travel journals

Enough tweeting and texting. Do as travellers have always done, down the centuries. Take out your travel journal. Start writing.

Enough tweeting and texting. You want your thoughts and impressions to be recorded for posterity, don't you? Or, at least, for yourself to re-read, in two, 10, 20 years' time. So put your phone away. Spare your friends another update. Instead, just open your eyes and note what you see. Don't snap it, observe it. Then go to a cafe and do as travellers have always done, down the centuries. Take out your travel journal. Start writing.
