Traveler’s Notebook is something we have started to take care with love for the last 18 months. – Since we became the distributor of MIDORI brand. However, before that, there was a Traveler’s Notebook which I used to note down my moments, and life stages, and travel. It was not love, because, for me, it was my paths – and myself. When I travel, it is often the time to think of life, and note down thoughts that change my future, this traveler’s notebook was there through out it.
I saw it in Maruzen in front of Tokyo station in early 2007.
I was wondering around browsing through the store and I saw it. One shelf of an ally up too high for me was dedicated to this whole series. I tip toed and reached up…I took interest and bought it casually with few refills. The zipper pockets and card files. – Never imagined this would become such a special notebook which I will write down the next destination to live with my husband, and I will introduce to many of those just like me wondering in the store in Paris.
Since then, it has been with me. Whole six years.
I saw that it became more and more popular among many people…but for me it was casual and usual. Nothing special.
I saw that they released a limited edition.
But I never took interest in them, because I was happy with mine.
So here it is..it has been to Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Nigata, Tottori, Tokushima, Nagoya, Osaka, Okayama, Fukushima, Okayama, Matsuyama, Paris, La Baule, Nice, Lyon, Val D’isere, Aupes, Marseilles, Normandie, London, Buenos Aires, San Francisco, New York, Montreal, Florence, Milan, Torino, Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Munich, Belgrade, Budapest, Vienna, Zagreb, Brac…and many places deep in my heart and brain.
Not many things around me are this old always Traveling with me to come to think of it! – and I travel quite a lot. So, there you go. I am with this little one quite a lot.
I now love this little guy that’s always with me. And WE love and care for all the new ones coming out waiting to become the “ONE” for many others.
