Fauxdori Set Up for Travel | DESIGN IS YAY Just before I leave for my trip, I’d like to share with you how I set up my Fauxdori. As you know from my previous planner posts, I have always used ring planners from Kikki.K and Filofax. When I saw the Fauxdoris created by Cakepaperie, I became interested in trying out dori-style planners as they seem to be more flexible and lightweight, which is perfect for travelling! Let’s have a look at how I set it up. Fauxdori Set Up for Travel | DESIGN IS YAY I have always wanted a polkadot planner, I am so glad when I saw this in Cakepaperie’s shop. The pink tassle is an additional purchase, but I really like the colour contrast. The parisian notebook is by Rifle Paper Co, and the mint blue pen is from Kikki.K. Fauxdori Set Up for Travel | DESIGN IS YAY It’s impossible to find original Midori Travellers’ Notebook here in Canberra, and I hate to have to wait for days each time I need a new notebook because I have to buy them online. So I bought a set of Moleskine Cahier pastel journals and have them cut into Midori size at Officeworks. Moleskine journals are thicker than Midori, however the paper is thinner. Therefore your writings will show through at the back pages. I don’t really mind as I’m going to use journalling cards and postcards. Since this fauxdori doesn’t come with a pen loop, I had to add one on my own. I bought a Leuchtturm pen loop in blue to match my mint blue Kikki.K pen. The side pocket is also an additional stick-on pocket from Midori which I bought from Notemaker.

I also added a folded pockets for my journalling kits and stamps. Fauxdori Set Up for Travel | DESIGN IS YAY Inside the Travel Journal, I have Itinerary pages which consists of boxes for flights/transportation (shaped like boarding passes) and accommodation itinerary (shaped like luggages tags). There are also travel checklist pages, but I had forgotten to take pictures! The next section is Bucket List, where I can put all the things I want to do, see, eat or drink in each country/city/place. Unfortunately I haven’t written much.

    love your planners

  • Cari Lup

    I love it! ON my last vacations I decided I didn’t want to carry a fauxdori book and now I’m regretting that =(

    • Fauxdori is so perfect for travelling. Other than having your notes and travel planning handy, I actually slip my passport into the elastics and I don’t have to worry about it slipping off :)

  • Hi Virginia,
    I designed that… and was planning to put it up for purchase on etsy… I just haven’t got around to do it. Hopefully soon :)
