The Paris City Journal ($16.95) is a beautiful traveling journal to write about your traveling experiences. It includes a map in the back to help you navigate the public transportation system the “city of love and lights” with ease. The large journals are equipped with an interior pocket for loose papers (i.e.: metro cards, notes and receipts) and an elastic fastener to protect sheets on your travels. This is a great journal to have even if you don’t travel and/or not the type to write in a diary. Personally, I opted for this item just for looks since it was too beautiful to pass up!
