We can’t all be van Gogh, but sometimes all you have to do is try. Have you ever found yourself admiring those who can create an attractive scene on paper with just a touch of colour and a few lines? If so, the time has come for you to try out the art of the travel journal.
A well-stocked backpack, boots, sunglasses, a diary and some watercolours. You were quite right not to choose a very demanding route. Rather than focusing on physical fitness, your walk should be all about the sensory experience. You don’t have any deadlines to meet. Just stop where you feel inspired or impressed by the landscape and observe everything around you.
You’ve found it! This is the scene you want to capture in your head and on your sheet of paper.
