What Are Journey Jottings?

Hello and Welcome!


Most maps tell you where to go…

travel memories

Journey Jottings help you remember where you’ve been.

No matter how exciting your trip, exotic the location, or wild the adventure… memories fade.


If you’re after a fun and easy way to record and share your Australian holiday adventures our unique pictorial Journal Map and Mail-It Map are for you. It’s as simple as plotting your route on the map and jotting down your travel highlights.

As keepsakes, they’ll always remind you of places visited, sights seen and adventures enjoyed.

Journal Maps let you summarise your trip on a single sheet to create a fun keepsake – brilliant for sharing your holiday highlights or for reminiscing.

Dot your route along the highways and byways you travelled. (Dots are easier than a continuous line, which no matter how hard you try, never wants to stay within the bounds of the trail you ventured along.)

But if you flew?

Just dash your flight path (use a ruler for straight lines).

How about using different colours for your travels by car, bus, train, plane, boat… ?

travel memories



In those inviting empty boxes surrounding the pictorial map, jot down place-names, who you met, stories of your adventures, hilarious highlights, or memorable moments.

Or paste reminders of those special times – photos, snippings from brochures, tickets to the attractions you visited…

Connect your tales written in the jotting boxes around the outside edge to their places on the map with arrows.






And where a special place you visited is not marked on the map? Use a self-adhesive label to highlight it.

Or ask the local Visitor Information Centre to rubber stamp their place name in one of the surrounding boxes – a bit like collecting passport stamps!





Our Signature product –
The A2 sized Journal Map

The pictorial, hand-drawn Journal Map comes in a two-pocket, clear plastic wallet that protects the map in the front pocket and preserves every true traveller’s treasure trove of ticket stubs, souvenirs and memorabilia in the back pocket.

And our Signature Product’s off shoot –
The A3 Mail-It Map

While the A2 Journal Map is designed for you to enjoy your travel memories, forever – The A3 Mail-It Map is for keeping family and friends posted while you’re away on your travels.

Plot your route on the pictorial map, add a few tantalising tales in the jotting boxes, and pop in the environmentally friendly envelope to share your adventures with those back home!
