Travel journalling

Of course I appreciate all the blogs about frugal travel, quit your job,vagabonding,ect but where are the posts about keeping a travel journal? Before I make a commitment to where I want to go, I start fretting over the details of my new journal.

Handmade or store bought?
If I go with store bought, do I finally want to get my paws on a Moleskine again?
Closed-spine or spiral bound?
White,line-less paper or a colored,random mix?

Then there are supply issues.
Carry them in my vintage train case or a small army bag?
Water colors or craft paint?
Do I paint the pages ahead of time or do I paint as I go?
Do I glue in my ephemera or wait till I add pictures?

To me, this is a very exciting aspect of travel. I am fixing to drive to New Mexico and have not even made my book yet! Will come soon. So,do you keep a journal? What do you put in it?

WOW I am going out of my mind. I NEED to travel. I just sold my Lisa Frank collection for $375. I have been making scrapbook flowers to ease my mind. I must create. I even started putting paintings in my Etsy (I am Blacvulture on there).In feel stagnate. I even got a passport at the beginning of the year. I am truly going crazy.
