Countdown to Japan (Part 1)

There’s just about four more months left until my intended trip to Japan and I am starting to be on panic mode. If you have read my Destination Japan post you know that this has been a dream of mine for quite some time now and I can just start to see it’s reality along the horizon. Enter panic mode, I still have so much to do, passports, research, planning, prepping, and any other synonym you can find in a Thesaurus when you are planning a trip of a lifetime.

At this point my brain is on overload and I needed a place to put all of my destination plans and ideas, although I am of the digital age and own an array of goodies that I could use, I recently found a Moleskine city journal of Tokyo online, there is something about the consciousness of physically writing something down that inspired me, the feel and smell of the leather that made me hunt down something that has been out of print for several years. Although other versions (cities) of this journal are fairly easy to find, mine the one I wanted was not found anywhere unless I was willing to pay what I felt was an exhorbatant amount of money. Finally I found it and am currently awaiting its arrival, rather painfully I might add as it could take up to 2 weeks!
For anyone that is planning a trip and wants to keep themselves organized and doesn’t want to miss out on the possible wonders your destination has to offer these journals are very well done and laid out, they have numerous cities available and quite a few are rather cheap.
But I caution you, don’t let your journal/book be your sole guide, look up and be a traveler and not just a tourist!
