Moleskine for Evernote: The satisfaction of a well-made notebook

I mentioned previously that I recently picked up one of Moleskine's Evernote notebooks - long after they were first introduced, so I'm not blazing any trails in this area! Essentially, these notebooks are created with the note-taking app in mind, allowing you to scan them into the app with your iPhone's camera. After a week of ...

My Japanese stationery haul

One thing I always enjoy about my visits to Japan is seeing what interesting and unique stationery I can come home with. In all my international travels, I've never encountered stationery stores like the ones in Japan - it appears to be a bit of a national obsession! I have two favourite places to pick ...

My trip to the Traveler’s Factory, Japan

It may sound strange, but one of my highlights of last month's visit to Japan was getting to visit the Traveler's Factory store in Tokyo. They stock the (formerly Midori) Traveler's Notebook products that I've been obsessing about over the last year, so I was determined to visit their 'HQ' and see the various products ...

Leaving Tokyo

It's our last full day in Japan today. Tomorrow afternoon we'll leave Tokyo to fly to Seoul for a brief overnight stay at the airport before our flight back to London.  To call this a disappointment would be an understatement. Yes, we've been away for coming up to two weeks and it's been fantastic, but ...

Inching closer to Japan…

In 11 days, I'll be hopping on the first of our flights to get us to Japan (with a lovely little stopover in Seoul on the way!). Yesterday, we got one step slower when we picked up our JR Rail Passes here in London. These passes are fantastic - we've used them before and can ...

My battered Midori Traveller’s Notebook

My lovely black Midori Traveler's Notebook, part of the massive haul of stationery I picked up on our last trip to Japan, has been in the wars. After a few months of daily use (and I mean daily) it was carelessly thrown into a bag alongside an iPad charger and came off second-best against the plug's ...

A brief Midori update

So, as I excitedly wrote last October, I picked up quite the collection of Midori Traveler's Notebooks and accessories when I was in Japan. This required a trip to a branch of Tokyu Hands in each of the cities we visited! But it was definitely worth it, as Tokyu Hands stores are treasure troves of ...

Joining the Midori gang

I think it's fair to say, I went a bit mad buying stationery while in Japan. I had one big item on my list: a Midori Traveler's Notebook. Once I'd got that, courtesy of Tokyu Hands in Hiroshima, I spent far too much time picking up various inserts for the notebook, as well as stickers, ...

Japanese stationery lust

I spent a happy hour in a local Tokyu Hands store here in Hiroshima yesterday. And in doing so, I basically cleared them out of their entire stock of Midori Traveler's notebooks and accessories. (No, not really - it just looked that way...) I finally got a traveler's notebook, a passport notebook and a whole ...
