When I went to New York last summer, I came across a Japanese bookstore that carried the Midori Traveler's Notebook. I hit the jackpot and went a little overboard with my shopping cart. At the time they didn't carry the 5th Anniversary Passport Edition, which I really wanted because of that beautiful camel color, but that was okay. I still walked out of there with the other two sizes in dark brown.
I can't believe I overlooked these files of my Midori passport notebook. I've had this journal for almost a year now but completely forgot about these unboxing pictures I had taken until now. Geez, talk about being a little late. You can check out my regular size unboxing I did here.
I'd have to say that my favorite part of receiving anything new is always the unboxing, and this experience was no different. It all came so nicely wrapped like a little present.
These are the contents that come with the journal purchase: a cotton cloth cover, the leather journal with a blank notebook refill #3, and an extra orange elastic band.
I purchased 3 more refills, a pen clip (#15), and a pocket folder to add to the collection.
This passport size is my perfect everyday carry and makes for a great jot for my thoughts. I even got my fiance loving it in which he winded up using it more than me half the time. Eventually I just gave in and "gifted" mine to him so we could both experience the Midori journals together (and to give me an excuse to buy the 5th Anniversary Edition later on.)
