San Isidro, Ecuador Moleskine Journal Notes
My Moleskine notebook from Ecuador's Eastern Slope.
These days, I am seeing more folks typing away at some small device while they are traveling. I wonder if the habit takes away from them being in a place. The moleskine journal is about the size of a smart phone, and has none of the features. But every year I find it the best way to organize my travels for my travel photography blog, collect ticket stubs, pressed flowers and stamps, and make notes for my blog. On the Eastern Slopes of the Andes, there was quite a bit of rain, and so I found myself often perched under the awning, painting whatever I could see in the downpour.
