Picked Up a Moleskine Voyageur For My Trip to China

I really owe Moleskine a huge *thank you* for making finals week in college much less stressful. I recently purchased my first notebook from them not too long ago and in many ways, it made college significantly easier for me.

I could go really in-depth about why my Moleskine was so useful, what I liked and disliked about it, and how I made it work best for me but those are all topics for a post some other time. (Still have one more exam to study for!)

In the meantime, I just wanted to share that I recently ordered another and it finally arrived today. The Moleskine Voyageur is my early “Congrats, you made it” gift to myself for surviving the hardest semester¬†of college I’ve ever faced.

I used up a good portion of my first Moleskine while studying for my science exams. I was happy to be putting the notebook to good use but by the time I was finished, biology and chemistry took up more than 2/3 of the pages.

Knowing that I could¬†definitely use¬†a nice¬†notebook over the summer, I looked into getting a new¬†one. Since a large portion of my summer is going to be spent traveling, I thought the Moleskine Voyageur would be a fun investment! (I was tempted to buy the same Moleskine Product Red again but with such a great¬†selection to choose from, I thought it would be better to try something new. Plus, I’d hate to run out the door and pick up the wrong notebook by accident.)


I was actually a little surprised to see that the Voyageur is slightly smaller than the Product Red Moleskine. I didn’t realize this when I ordered it online but I actually appreciate the extra portability.¬†I plan on bringing it with me to China and Indiana this summer so the smaller size was¬†a welcomed surprise. It also has a total of three¬†ribbons for saving your page which is so incredibly useful.

We shall see.
