The Adventure Log


A few weeks ago, I discovered a small notebook call the The Adventure Log, and I immediately purchased a set. I kept one notebook for myself and gave the other two away.

The notebook is 48 pages and it’s 3.5″ x 5.5″, which makes it a perfect pocket-sized notebook. Recently, I went on a hike, and I kept the notebook in my vest pocket and took it out frequently to jot down notes on the trail.

I was drawn to the notebook because I’ve been thinking about the importance of cultivating adventures in my daily life. I love my daily rituals, but I don’t want to get stuck in a rigid routine either. If I don’t seek out adventures in my daily life, my writing, photography, and overall creativity stagnates.


My intention is to fill my adventure log by the end of summer. I want to be outside more to take photos and to enjoy the weather, especially during May and early June.

I’ll share my adventures here, via my Little Letter, and on social media. Logging my adventuring and sharing them online is how I hold myself accountable. If I don’t plan adventures or write about them, they don’t happen.

With gratitude,

P. S. You can purchase The Adventure Log from Word or Bradley Mountain

    What a great idea! I’ve been feeling the same need to get out and about, but it hadn’t occurred to me to bring a notebook along. I sometimes make notes on my iPhone, but that get’s a little annoying and very ‘keywordy’. I’ll pop a notebook in my handbag right away! Thanks for the tip!

    I want to spend more time outside this summer too, Tammy. I’m glad you found this cute this notebook to help you implement the process.

    I bought a Travelers Notebook after seeing yours and investigating a bit more on the internet. I really like it. I like putting things on paper. It’s been my most successful way of journaling. I have the regular size notebook but sometimes it’s too big. I’m looking in to using the passport size next year. The Adventure Log looks about the same size as the Midori passport.

    I recently discovered The Adventure Log notebooks. I love them! I’m using one to log all of my 46-high peak hikes in the Adirondacks in New York state. The notebook is the perfect size.

    I recently received a traveler’s notebook as a birthday present from Kikki.K and I’m so excited to use it and log all of my own adventures around the world. I’m excited to read about your adventures too.

    Oooo I love this – can you purchase these online?

      Yes. Please see my note at the bottom of the post. 😉

    This is great and reminds me of the book The Artist’s Way, by Julia Cameron. I have fallen off the wagon lately, but try to draw every day events and keep up with my “morning pages” to stay present. Thanks for your blog. We live in a tiny house as well! Cheers.

    Thank you for this Tammy. I am going to order a set for sure. Just as you said, without intentionally creating an adventure, our lives can enter a routine that stagnates. I am going to get this and give 1 to my husband and we will fill them up, beginning this summer.

    Life has always been a grand adventure! The earliest I can remember is when I took a bus (with one transfer) from the suburbs to downtown Little Rock, AR in 1955, to purchase two goldfish from the Woolworths store on the corner of third and Main. I chose my fish carefully____they had to be hardy, as we had the long trip back home. We made it! I never wrote that adventure down, but I’ve never forgotten it either. Having recently turned sixty-five, I’m trying to fit in at least TWO adventures a day! I don’t want to miss anything___and I’ve been writing every day for years and years. I’m so going to look for this lovely Adventure Journal that you have written about! You do inspire me every day! Thanks!
