1. OCTAEVO PASSPORT TRAVEL NOTES
When it comes to travel journal ideas, we’ve got them all… But for most trips away, nothing beats the Octaveo Passport Travel Notes. Light, compact and cute, you’ll love to throw this in your bag and scribble away your reflections, ideas and inspirations. Document interesting facts from everywhere you visit or write down daily itineraries or plans, and daydreams about where you want to go next!
The notebook comes in three colours which correspond to plain, ruled and dotted paper. We’re obsessed with the unique stamps on the front of each cover that pay homage to some of oldest Mediterranean civilisations.

2. WALK WITH ME REGULAR POUCH
As much as we wish we could bring our entire wardrobe with us on our trips, it is usually not possible to say the least. For that reason, versatility in the items that we do bring with us is key.
Everyone needs a safe place to keep their passport and travel documents...and credit cards, key cards, sunglasses...the list goes on. This is why we love this recycled leather pouch from Walk With Me Brand. It fits your passport as well as other small items such as your mobile phone and glasses, while doubling as a clutch for day or night use!

3. HMM BALLPOINT PEN IN BLACK
Of course, to go with any beautiful notebook, you need a beautiful pen. A key item of stationery for travel lovers, pens are lifesavers when you need to scribble down an address or number and your phone has died.
We recommend the HMM Ballpoint. Just click and write, with no need to worry about losing your pen cover. Not only is it incredibly light and incredibly stylish, but it’s designed for enhanced comfort and stability of writing. This will be crucial on train and plane journeys!

5. POI CO. ORIGAMI FOLDER
We all know how quickly scraps of paper accumulate in our bags while travelling… It’s important to have a place to store these, not only to protect important documents but to cherish memories you make along the way.
These Poi Co. Origami Folders are a beautiful way to hold onto keepsakes, like ticket stubs and receipts.

6. RIFLE PAPER CO. WANDERLUST JOURNAL
While the Octaveo travel notepads provide a great place to jot down important notes and plans you might want something a little more special to record your journey.
Travel stories are things to treasure forever and the Rifle Paper Co. Wanderlust Journal really reflects this. Featuring a soft linen cover with a travel motif, the journal is both beautiful and sturdy. You’ll enjoy every journal entry all over again when you read the memories you have recorded.

Many of the brands we stock are characterised by the magical feeling of a trip abroad… From Octaveo and its Mediterranean mystery to the boldly British Ola.
For this reason, it’s worth exploring further afield as well as looking at this list when packing for your next trip.
