A doodling journaling traveler is what I am (among other things, obvs) and naturally over the years I’ve ended up with notes scribbled onto hotel stationary that I don’t always remember what it means years later. When scrapbooking became my mom’s new hobby and with it came the amazing supplies, I started to add pictures to my journals. I now have a team of travel journals so that no matter where I am I always have one near by. But when I went to Loreto, literally in the middle of packing up our house to move to Tennessee, I had already packed them up. So, what is a girl to do? Go back to her hotel stationary notes. These are those notes along side photos to bring them to life.

I have done many a traveling things that in the moment of booking seemed like a great idea. Flying to the west coast and back in less than 5 days while in the middle of moving, wasn’t the poor life decision. Choosing to save $75 bucks was. I could have easily made the trip shorter, but at the time of booking my flight it seems like a good and grand idea. I am here to tell you that I have learned my lesson. Jet Lag is a thing. And I felt like I was in the movie Groundhog Day. I would board a plane at 10 am, fly for a couple of hours and somehow magically land in the next city around 10am. My concept of time has never been so skewed (insert wide eyed smiley that looks surprised).
