The Traveler’s Guide: #3 Filofax | Weekly Agenda Inserts

“Good fortune is what happens when opportunity meets with planning.”Thomas Edison I don’t recall when my love of analog planners began.

These days there are thousands of planner/calendar apps to choose from, but it just isn’t the same as planning by hand. Additionally, I have always believed that if you write down your thoughts and to-do lists, you won’t easily forget them. Consequently, my passion for Filofax began.

Thus, I was on the lookout for a new notebook for my daily journal writing. After spending a lot of time on YouTube, Instagram and Pinterest, I wanted to revisit the traveler’s notebook again, especially the olive edition; and thus started a whole new adventure in researching different refills and setting up the traveler’s notebook to my liking.
