Every trip you take is bound to be full of activities you want to remember. Instead of relying on photos or video to look back on your journey, why not log it? Even if you aren’t a writer, the travel journal from Smythson can unleash your inner creativity.


The travel journal from Smythson retails for $255 on its website, and it’s worth the cost. This journal is composed of a durable, natural goatskin that gives it a chic look. It comes in a dove gray color that matches virtually everything, and its gilt-edged pages are light blue and featherweight.


The size of the journal itself is 5.5 inches by 7.5 inches, meaning it can still fit snugly into your carry-on bag. You can personalize it with your name and a motif on the center of the cover. This also makes it the perfect gift for the traveler in your life.


If you prefer to jot down your travel musings and other daily activities in a simple journal, Smythson has that on its website, too. Its 2015 Soho Diary retails for $260, while its Pocket Panama Diary starts at $130. Smythson also has a wide variety of fountain pens if you want to write in style — just be prepared to open your wallet, as some pens reach the $1,000 mark!
