TODAY I LIKE ··· TRAVEL JOURNALS

Siempre que viajo me gusta tomar notas en una libreta o incluso llevar un diario del viaje. En diciembre de 2011 fui a Nueva York con unas amigas y paseando por el West Village en Bleecker Street dimos con BOOKMARC, una librería y papelería del diseñador Marc Jacobs.

Había un montón de cosas bonitas, pero nos llamó la atención un diario de viaje ilustrado por la diseñadora Kate Pocrass: I WAS HERE, A TRAVEL JOURNAL FOR THE CURIOUS MINDED. Cada página está decorada por dibujos monísimos y frases divertidas. Se divide en 6 secciones: Credo (pensamientos sobre el viaje), Before You Go (típica lísta de "no olvidar" y "cosas imprescindibles de ver"), Journeys, In the Field (para anotar recomendaciones y consejos), Reference (medidas, tallas de ropa, diccionario,...) y Notas. Me encanta.

I like taking notes or even writing a travel journal each time I travel so as not to forget anything. In December 2011 I went to New York with a couple of friends and one day, walking around the West Village along Bleecker Street, we ran into BOOKMARC, an amazing bookstore from designer Marc Jacobs.  

The store offered loads of original and nice things, but there was a book by designer Kate Procrass that caught our attention: I WAS HERE, A TRAVEL JOURNAL FOR THE CURIOUS MINDED. It has beautiful illustrations inside. The book is organized into 6 sections: Credo (the author's thoughts on travel), Before you go (the usual useful fill-in-the-blanks and must-see lists), Journeys, In the Field (where you can record things like important location information and itineraries), Reference (clothing sizes, simple translations,...) and Notes. I love it.
