Create Your Own Tour Guide

June 2nd, 2006 by Alex

If you haven’t looked yet, check out our toolbox — it’s filled with information on all the Internet sites that can help with your personal media. What we haven’t spent much time on yet is the tools not on the Web. (What do you want from us? The real world is so last season.)

Here’s an interesting tool for those of you still into that whole pen-and-paper thing: City Notebooks, a moleskine notebook designed as a kind of do-it-yourself guidebook. It comes with a series of city maps, but the rest of the notebook is customizable. They’re only available for select European cities right now, but they’ll be debuting here in the U.S. in early 2007.

Update: I totally forgot about another site listed in our handy-dandy group of links on the right side of the page, under the “Stories About Stuff” section: the Moleskinerie, a blog dedicated to the history, use and procurement of Moleskine notebooks, which apparently are more than just your average notebook. Actually, after reading Moleskinerie, I’ve decided I want one. I’m buying it after work today. Sigh… ADD-influenced impulse buys will really hurt the old wallet.
