About Travelcraft Journal

Travelcraft Journal is made for creative adventurers who want to discover new places, experience culture, try things out themselves.

It’s a place to read about travel tips, DIY/crafting experiments, quirky road trips, art, food, and sights to see in Phoenix and beyond. We take a pragmatic approach that acknowledges that things rarely go exactly as planned. It’s about embracing the journey and savoring the moment instead of stressing about constructing a perfect day, meal, or project.
