When I first learned about City Moleskines. I wanted them immediately. They seemed like just perfect products. So finally, I bought one.
When I received the package, my first surprise was that it was pocket size. It was my fault of course, for not checking, but I just assumed that with all the maps and stuff, pocket would be too small. So my first reaction was disappointment. That's because I never buy pocket moleskine. Large moleskine is my definition of compact journal, so that's just about the right, portable size for me.
However, despite the disappointment, I knew that I would get over it. So after a couple of days, I looked at my NYC moleskine again, and slowly, I got fond of it. Now, I am really looking forward to using it for my upcoming trip.
BUT said that, I will be using this because it's cute. It's moleskine. And it's a novelty factor.
I will not be buying any more city moleskines. Half the pages taken up in maps, with legended pages etc. I just don't believe this journal is a good value for money. There is not enough room to write. It's far too expensive for what's there. I will also be sticking my normal, large moleskines.
But to end with a positive note....here are pictures of my NYC moleskine, which in about a month's time will be filled up :-))
