Very few people leave a country and return the same person. Yes, I know. This is probably one of the most cliché things to say about travel; yet, somehow it still remains one of the biggest understatements of the year. Moleskine, the company known for its notebooks, planners and other sketchbooks, has emphasized this point over and over again. Since 1997, Moleskine has reminded us of the beauty of travel, going back to the “days of the great travellers of the nineteenth century” for inspiration. Now, it’s our turn. What memories do we capture and share with each other as modern travellers? Whatever they may be, the Moleskine Voyageur Traveller’s notebook provides a way for you to record them down.
What Is The Moleskine Voyageur Traveller’s Notebook?
The Moleskine Voyageur Traveller’s notebook is a sketchpad, organizer and planner all in one. The canvas cover ensures that it is durable, yet lightweight and portable for travel. But besides portability, what makes the Voyageur any different from any other notebook you can find online or in a store?

Well, as the name suggests, it is designed for travellers. It features all three Moleskine paper types: ruled (for taking notes), plain (for sketches, drawings, etc.) and dotted. It also includes perforated and detachable checklists, which make it easy for travellers to stay organized.
Perhaps the coolest and most innovative feature of the notebook, however, is that it “fits seamlessly into your digital lifestyle.” For example, if you happen to run out of pages, you can easily print out more via the myMoleskine website. In fact, you can even print out your itineraries or any other content from any URL in the exact dimensions of the Voyageur. After doing so, all you have to do is paste them into the book.
As a way to connect travelers all over the world, the Voyageur is also one component in a large collaborative project, which features a Flickr gallery and an interactive map. After purchasing a Voyageur notebook, users can participate in the project by removing the notebook’s paperband, which says “I Am Here” on its back. Travelers can then take photos with this piece of paper and share it with the world, using the #m_iamhere hashtag. By doing so, modern day travelers can easily connect with one another. After all, unforgettable memories are meant to be shared and saved.
