In Transit: Tan Leather

Whether commuting on the train or working at a coffee shop, a touch of tan leather can class up any look. My leather iPhone case has been a staple of my every day carry for years now. It patinas beautifully and feels great in your hand after it's worn in.

A Stellar Travel Journal at a Great Price

I've carried a Bull & Stash journal with me basically everyday for the past two years and I've found no better way to store my ideas, schemes and plans. Recently the company revamped their lineup with the introduction of the Market, Leonard and Allison journals, each one representing a different size in the line. The Market Pocket Journal is my favorite for an on the go life. It fits easily into a pocket or purse and the refillable pages make it easy to keep the ideas flowing. 

A while back I was able to demo the Leonard size journal and it quickly became my go to for meetings and long form writing. I'm a creature of habit and the ability to carry the same journal with me everywhere I go, day in and day out, no matter how much I write in it, is ideal. 

The new models have introduced a much needed pocket to store spare business cards or receipts, a spot to hang your pen and a few new colors as well. The Leonard even has enough room for a small tablet to be held in it's pocket. Check them out at Huckberry right now, who's got them at a little bit of a discount.

Travel Camera Gear From Travel Feels

I've long been a fan of Matti Haapoja's brand Travel Feels. Some of his videos are the reason I created this site and his content is still a huge inspiration for everything I do. For the last several months, Matti has been more homebound in Toronto due to the birth of his child (congratulations!) but now he's heading out on the road again and sharing his travel gear for his trip to Norway. 

This simple setup (well, if you don't include the drone) has all the basics that you'll need for travel photography and videography. And speaking of drones, I've never been a huge fan but in a place like Norway or Iceland, it'd be almost criminal to not get some aerial footage of all that natural beauty. Just don't overdo it and leave the pesky humans out of it. 

Make sure to follow Travel Feels on Facebook for more great travel film content.
