making the most of my weekends!
Every time i visit a new city, my favourite thing is exploring and hunting down all the coolest stores, galleries, bars and haunts. i live on an island so trips are few and far between and i always manage to forget where these places are the next time i visit! to save myself some trouble, i decided to put together all my little discoveries in one place where i could add notations at will. i think it would be pretty cool to trade with friends too. now everythings all in one place that fits in my purse and doesn't look as geeky as a giant map covered in pen marks!
