4 Travel Must-Haves From the New DODOCase Collection


You might remember DODOcase for their original book-bound iPad case. Since launching in 2010, the San Francisco-based company has grown to offer a versatile line of handcrafted goods that match traditional leatherwear with today's technology.

A true traveler can appreciate the symbolism of a leather suitcase, and DODOcase's new LeatherCraft Collection takes this nostalgia of a bygone era of travel and pairs in perfectly with goods for today’s technology and design-savvy explorers. The collection features four new accessories, all made from American tanned Logger's Leather and each a must-have in any traveler’s repertoire: two luggage tags, a notebook cover and a passport case. Each item also has the option to be monogrammed.

The luggage tag come in two varieties, and the only issue is having to choose just one. The solid leather version comes with a brass carabiner clip and the option to deboss your name and phone number on the top side. The other tag includes a pocket and clear window for displaying a business card or other personal identification.

The leather notebook cover fits a standard softcover Strathmore Notes or Moleskine journal, the quintessential way to preserve travel memories and anecdotes from your adventures. The cover's dark exterior contrasts perfectly with the vegetable-tanned leather interior. 

Finally, the passport case is as practical as it is pretty. It snaps closed for safekeeping, and includes two interior pockets for holding various cards, as well as a convenient pen holder. 

You can view all these items and more on the DODOcase website, or follow them on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.

Experience Barcelona in "Flow-Motion"



I'm a long-time fan and follower of Rob Whitworth's incredible destination-themed videos (see Shanghai and Ho Chi Minh City). His latest, Barcelona Go!, captures the city in "flow motion," or fast slow motion.

Enchanting Iceland Captured in Infrared



I really am convinced Iceland has to be one of the most enchanting places on Earth. There is no better proof of this than Andy Lee's Blue Iceland series of infrared photographs from his first visit to the country.
