Last Christmas, I put a Dublin Moleskine City Notebook into my of-Irish-descent girlfriend’s stocking. Of course, I gave one to myself, too. We weren’t planning a trip abroad; we still aren’t. But when it comes time to go, it’s the first thing we’ll pack.
Each 228-page notebook has everything you need in a foreign burg: city and public-transit maps and an alphabetized street index, for non-iPhone navigation; a people-and-places index, blank sheets, tracing pages and detachable notes for documenting and exchanging information. And at 3.5-by-5.5 inches, it’s extremely portable.
If you’re getting married in Boston, Chicago, L.A., Miami, New York, Philly, San Francisco, Seattle, D.C., Montreal, Toronto or Vancouver, do your guests a favor and stuff one in their welcome bag. It’ll help them get around a lot easier, and, best of all, the next time they visit they’ll have a head start on everything they want to see and do. And if you’re honeymooning abroad, check out European and Asian city models.
