Paper Footprints

A 12-day journalling challenge for expats, immigrants and slow travellers

Living outside your home country?

Or perhaps you’re just visiting, but you like to take your time and really immerse yourself in the local culture. 

This challenge is for you if:
  • You enjoy reflecting on your international experiences
  • You want to preserve your overseas memories 
  • You're interested in using your travels to write more creatively
  • You'd like to begin journalling but you're not sure how to start

You’ll learn how to:
  • Use writing prompts to start a journalling habit
  • Pay attention to your surroundings and notice new details
  • Use your travels to spark story ideas
  • Find your own prompts for future journalling

What’s in the challenge?

The challenge includes 12 writing prompts - one for each day. I’ll take you through some quick and simple techniques to help you:

  • Overcome self-doubt
  • Write regularly (and enjoy it!)
  • Keep going when you get stuck
  • Identify what kind of journalling you enjoy


  1. When does the challenge start?

Although the challenge is 12 days, I’ve designed it as a downloadable PDF booklet so you can start it at any time. 

  1. How much time do I need?

Just 15 minutes a day for 12 days. 

  1. Do I have to share my writing?

This challenge offers you a private space to explore your time overseas. Your writing is for your eyes only. But of course I’ll always be happy to hear from you if you want to share any thoughts, insights or anecdotes related to the prompts!
