Project Description

Your assignment is to submit at least 4-8 spreads of a travel journal (Feel free to show me more if you'd like!). These pages can be based on a past trip or even on a future trip that you're looking forward to.

If you're not sure what to show or write about in these spreads, here's some ideas to get you started:

- Foreign or new foods

- People that you meet

- Museums, architecture and landmarks

- Beaches, forests, hills and mountains

- General observations about your new environment

- Any and all feelings ranging from excitement, homesickness or awe

- Memorable quotes or words that apply to the trip

Be sure to incorporate the various techniques that we discussed throughout this lesson and don't be afraid to try new forms of self-expression!
