Moleskine Travel Journal, a Review

Moleskine Travel Journal, a Review

“Overall, I recommend the Moleskine Travel Journal”

Moleskine Passions is a collection of various journals to record and recall memories, thoughts and notes about different passions.”– This is how Moleskine summarizes the identity of series of journals it has been releasing since 2010. This review is about the Moleskine Travel Journal, a diary where you can insert all your thoughts about your journeys around the world.

As any other “Large” format Moleskine diary, the Moleskine Book Journal has 13×21 cm pages (5×8 inches), 240 acid-free paper pages. The main difference when compared to other Moleskine products is the cover: it is a hard, black cover; fully embossed. Very cool to look at, and sets you in the right mood for your travels.

This notebook is divided in 3 parts: the first part includes personal details, an airline loyaly card section, mini calendars from 2011 to 2018, a travel timeline, timezones,  international airports, time zones, a list of local temperatures and days of rain a list of international airports and relative details, flight durations and finally a handy vocabulary with “traveling terms”. This section is followed by subject sections with  wish lists, planning, weekends, short trips and long trips. As expectable by any Moleskine production: plenty of space for your thoughts, sketches, memories in all of these sections.

Don't forget...

The third half of the Moleskine Travel Journal is dedicated to 5 tabbed sections that can be personalized according to one’s needs and taste by the use of 6 of the 40 adhesive labels (I have organized them in this way: “Equipment, People, Routes, Must Go Back!, Awesome”, for example.) Very useful to note things you loved in your trips or  found interesting while traveling the world.

Beyond the 5 tabbed sections, 9 classic Moleskine blank pages “to unleash your passion’s creativity” and finally: a double expandable inner pocket where you will find 150 more colored stickers to personalize each page.

Also, there’s a small present waiting for you inside the log…

Overall, I recommend the Moleskine Travel Journal. It has been a good companion so far…
