The summer travel time is here.. weekend trips and week (or longer) vacations. Why not get yourself a journal Big or small to write about what you did, places of interest as well as favorite places, restaurants, r& food to just name a few things. You can glue receipts in (or just the logo or address from it so you can recommend it to a friend or family member going to the area.)
I suggest this brand for a reason, it’s well made, durable and it has a pocket in the back, as well as it comes in a variety of sizes and colors as well as Themes! I came across this travel one somewhere (and shows quite a few images of the inside of the book). I know I saw a bunch when I was in Barnes & Nobles book store and even got these 2 palm sized ones, or those that would know cassette tape size and will fit anywhere! (great to include in a travel writing kit, which you can find ideas in the pages on journaling in the menu)
I love Moleskine books (most call notebooks) but I call them journals (Notebooks are for school and work but if you are using it for both work and personal then to me its a journal.
my Mini Moles ~ Moleskine journals the size of an audio cassette
I’ve looked at Moleskin hacks as I had given myself (cause no one ever gets me something I need) a Moleskine pocket journal planner. Each day has its own page and I plan to note what is planned for the day as well as Blog posts I have scheduled, reminders and so on. I have used a regular journal for my movie reviews for the year and the occasional entry about my day,and so on.
I have a couple of these that are small enough they are about the size (or a little smaller than) the palm of my hand. Upon prepping to take the photo I looked for something to compare the size to, and for those of you that do not know what that is under my ‘mini moles’ it’s called a cassette tape!!
includes a pocket in the back and includes a serial number sticker
So what to use the pocket for? papers, coupons mementos depending on what your use of the journal is. If it’s going to be a daily than you can put movie, theater etc tickets in the pocket, wallet size photos (like from those old photo booths) and you can keep your work, school & personal (creative?) computer files at hand wherever you go with this
