I had bought it to bring with me on my first time to D.C. for a conference - I'm obsessive about knowing how to get around before hand and having written directions / train schedules / phone numbers in case I have no internet connection. While I admit I previously studied my metro stops / maps beforehand, it was so nice to have a little map in hand to glance at on the train inconspicuously without having to go full tourist mode staring at metro maps on the wall. As a woman traveling alone, I don't like to draw attention to the fact I'm not from the area.
There were so many pages available not only for traveling info, but notes for my workshops and symposia talks.
After maps and important area numbers, there is blank pages for notes, and then a series of tabbed sectioned pages. There were stickers that came with the notebook to label blank tabs for things such as events, while the first dozen already had permanent labels that I wish they would have just left blank. There is also the traditional pocket in the back of the note book, which was awesome to keep my metro card in, with tracing paper to merge some of the maps for your routes.
Like I said, even if you're not going to DC this notebook is worth the price - just cut out the maps if you don't need them and ignore the tab labels.
I also liked having space to plan itineraries, take notes, write out advance directions, etc. I hoped to also use it as a journal while traveling but largely failed to do so. However, I did use it to jot a few interesting quotes or names of books or subjects I wanted to research later.
These aren't made for as many cities as I would like, but I plan on snapping the ones up for places I plan to visit in case they go out-of-print.
These are great for whenever I am going to a new city, as it has great maps and a lot of information to see.
I hope they come out with more cities
