DIY Food Passport

What is a food passport, you might ask? If you're one of those people who like to make lists just so you can check off an item or if you like to keep note of new restaurants you've been to, then this journal is for you! It's a notebook where you can write down different places that you and your friends or you and your significant other want to try out in the area. Then you can either check it off the list or you can place a sticker like I did. Yes, I'm 27 and I still like stickers. I got the idea from another blogger who just happens to also live in the Nashville area but I made it my own. When I get on the doodling train, especially when it comes to letters, there's no stopping me. I'll show you some of the restaurants I wrote down and you could adapt yours to something similar.

I wrote down the restaurant names, the date we dined with them, hours of operation, phone numbers, and if reservations were needed or not. But you can write down whatever you feel like writing. That's for you to decide. All you need is a small notebook so that it can fit in your purse and some doodling magic in those fingertips!

Step 1: Buy a cute notebook.

Step 2: Buy some stickers. I thought about getting other stickers but these were in the dollar bin at Target and I couldn't say no to these guys.

Step 3: Write in your Food Passport title page.

Final Step: Decide what restaurants you would like to dine in and write them down!

Several others with this same idea made their passport with a different notebook. Here is what some of theirs look like.


Making a food passport was a DUH moment for me. I don't know why I hadn't thought of it before now. We like trying out new restaurants all the time. And this will be such an awesome memory when we look back 40 years from now and think of all the good times we had.

If you're unsure about trying new restaurants, take that leap of faith and just do it!! You'll be pleasantly surprised at all the exciting and delicious foods out there. It's always an adventure when you open your appetites to world in front of you.

Have you made a food passport before? What did it look like? Have you made a similar notebook? What new things were you trying out?
