One of the things I wished I’d started doing earlier is recording my travels. There have been many times when I’ve wanted to recommend a restaurant or a sight and just can’t remember the name of the place. Until I was given the Bound Journal (right) by a friend. It’s gorgeous soft leather gives it a luxe feel. You can pick one up yourself at Violet.com for just $38 and be channeling your inner Hemingway in no time.
