For the past years I have been travelling and documenting my climbs, beacheneering, island tours or even a simple unforgettable event. Would it be nice if I could document those events on a customized, antique-look journal?
Alunsina Handbound Books has a variety of designs however model RJB7 caught my attention. It uses a chopstick that serves as a lock. I requested to have my initials embossed at the front cover and soldered "iamnoempty" at the back.
The pages are stitched so it has a fixed number of pages. So if you're planning to refill it, not possible. These journals are available, with limited stocks through its suppliers (I visited AC+632 in Greenbelt 5 and FIRMA in Greenbelt 3 but got unlucky because all items were sold out), I got mine through Alunsina's official Facebook page.
What's beautiful about ordering online was that I was able to request to have my initials embossed/soldered, though it took 1 week before I got mine, but it was worth the wait. I am excited to document all my 2014 travels using my Alunsina journal.
