Planes, Trains, Bicycles & Elephants Travel Notes

This little notebook is the perfect companion for any traveller. Just the right size for a large pocket or a small bag, the cover is printed in the Bright Side trade mark wood block typeface with the words: Planes, Trains, Bicycles & Elephants with the subtitle Travel Notes inside a purple silhouette of an elephant. The rest of the title is in grey, purple and shiny silver ink.

Inside, the book has deep purple endpapers and page edges, with a first page entitled Rememberings of an Adventure.  It is then divided into useful sections, beginning with personal details and useful information. This is followed by a map of the world, a couple of pages of notes on different countries, and some conversion charts and handy foreign phrases.

The next section is entitled Wander Lustrous and contains lined pages for Notes about this oh-my-goodness-I’m-so-excited-I-might-pass-out trip I’m taking. Further sections include Packing Listathon, Itinerary Tastic and 40 Winks, all with spaces for travel checklists, departure and arrival details and accommodation. The notebook then becomes almost hysterical with a page that announces: So Excited I Might Pop, followed by a selection of blank and lined pages, intended for detailed notes about the owner’s glorious adventures. There are then some pages for game playing (checkerboards, noughts and crosses etc), more space for travel writing and a long section for Remembering and Reminiscing, with interestingly titled pages such as: Stories which will keep me in dinner parties for years, Moments of clarity and inspired ideas and Random events which occurred. The book is completed with a spending diary, gift category, address and contact section and recommendations pages. Inside the back cover is a pocket printed with the words: Place to put all my tickets, receipts and bits of paper thingies, and the back cover is printed with a pattern of elephants and the words Wander Lusterous. The book is protected against tropical downpour, tidal waves and avalanches by a practical plastic cover.

The Bright Side have covered every aspect of travel in this useful notebook, which will accompany the intrepid explorer on a lifetime’s worth of adventures and ultimately form the basis for a best-selling travel diary. Or it will simply be a useful and comprehensive book in which to store all your travel information. It makes a lovely gift for anyone who enjoys travel, especially a gap year student or backpacker, or simply a holiday memento journal.

Rachel Bright

Writer, illustrator and self-declared eternal optimist Rachel Bright is the creative mind behind The Bright Side. Her work aims to capture a free way of thinking - one that makes you feel anything is possible - a sentiment all too easily lost with the end of childhood. 

Her bold designs feature across a whole range of products – everything from wedding planners to egg cups – as Rachel aims to bring the brighter side of things to all aspects of life. The distinctive Bright Side font adorns all of her pieces, making it instantly recognisable as well as evoking the freewheeling spirit the brand stands for.

Sometimes tongue in cheek, often bold and quirky, and always with a positive outlook, the Bright Side is a truly unique gift to the world.

As well as her work with the Bright Side, Rachel has written several acclaimed children's books, all of which can be found here on CampusGifts. She also writes poetry and was the official World Book Day illustrator in 2013.

Rachel kindly agreed to speak to us about her work with the Bright Side and beyond, and you can read the full interview here!
