My Current Traveler's Notebook Set Up
In 2016 I discovered the Midori Traveler’s Notebook system. Upon discovery, my note-taking, doodling, idea & inspiration gathering, and tactile senses were all tingling and I immediately fell in love.
Initially I had trouble finding one to purchase. I checked local stores, I searched online for someone who would ship it to me without charging as much or more as the product itself (that’s another story), and I had international friends keeping their eyes out for one for me too. Finally I found a vendor in the neighbouring province and bought an 8.25x4.25in leather cover, two notebooks and the plastic insert with pockets on one side and a zip pouch on the other. I was in heaven…the smell of the leather, the feel of the crisp pages and the potential for my organizational needs to be met all in one place!
Over the past years, I have enjoyed the process of seeing what I would use and how I would use it how it has emerged organically. I tested out different types of notebooks, folders, inserts and pockets. This is actually how I came to start up my shop. Ideas came to me for items that I wanted to use in my own TN and so I made them!
Right now, the system I am using is very refined and is working well for me. Take a look…
