I think it says this:

A TRAVEL DIARY LOG Today: CHESTER Met my friend HESTER after many years. Owns a shop of home stuff like a CHEST. Enjoyed talking with her. Met her last at the CHER concert. Great place. Nice historic streets with street vendors. Many TREES. Tried haggling with a vendor named STAN. He was MEAN! MANCHESTER tomorrow. It is EASTER. REST now. Log out. -HERMAN

Note that

two of the digits correspond to the same letter, namely E.

Method of solution:

After a false start (trying for things ending -DAY) it occurred to me that 6 was probably S because of "Many 79856". This yielded "--S- now. Log out." strongly suggesting REST. After that it was all pretty obvious with e.g. CHESTER and then MANCHESTER standing out.
