Would you like to learn how to create some lovely travel doodles for your Bullet Journal? In this blog I will offer some fun ideas and include a video that shows you step by step how I create my travel doodles.
Travel themed bullet journal
If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen my travel themed bullet journal and my nature (minimalist) bullet journal that I am creating for 2021. I really wanted a travel themed bullet journal this year to create an almost ‘wish list’ of places I can visit once we can all travel again. It is also really fun that we can travel the world from within our bujo’s!
My minimal bullet journal is super easy for first time bullet journalists to follow and I have created a nature theme within it. I will be writing more blogs about it soon!
You do not have to be creating a travel themed bullet journal to use my doodles. No matter what your theme is, they can also come in handy! They can add some fun to any page so let’s take a closer look at some travel doodles.
Before I show you my video which will show you step by step how I create my Travel Doodles, I wanted to give you some fun ideas on doodles you can create!
Re-create your holiday suitcase by following the sequence pictured below. Suitcases are so easy to re-create and they remind me of stepping off a plane and onto a beach. Hello sun!
A signpost is a lovely travel doodle to add to a page. You could even use it as a navigation system within your bullet journal. The signpost could be facing one way and could say ‘weekly logs’ or ‘affirmations’.
I wanted to show you an example of how I have used a signpost in my Bullet Journal.
Cameras help you capture your memories so you can keep them forever. I absolutely love looking at old photos and remembering different holidays. The camera doodle is easy to recreate and always makes me think of snapping something memorable.
Are you missing flying? Because I am. I love when a plane lands and you have arrived at your destination! Planes might seem like a hard doodle but actually they can be very simple.

Some Travel doodle tips!
- Start by drawing the doodles in pencils.
- Once you are happy, draw over them with your fine tip black pen.
- Grab your watercolours and paint the doodles.
- Once your paint is dry, use your white gel pen to outline some edges.
- Use your grey watercolour to create any shadows you need.
- My final tip is that, when I first started drawing doodles I struggled. So don’t worry, it’s normal. To help me learn how to draw them, I printed out doodles from the internet and put a piece of paper over them. I traced out the doodles with a pencil and practised until I didn’t need to trace anymore.
