Notes from My Travels is a collection of journal excerpts kept by actress Angelina Jolie in 2001-2002 detailing her experiences travelling to troubled Third World regions in her role as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

The book was published in 2003, concurrent with the release of Beyond Borders, a film in which she plays a character who eventually works for UNHCR. It was also during the timeframe of writing these journals that Jolie adopted her Cambodian-born son, Maddox.

Notes from My Travels details Jolie's visits to Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Pakistan, Cambodia, and Ecuador.

Jolie donated her proceeds from the book to the UNHCR.
