The Travel Journal

$77,695

1,523

We're excited to be back on Kickstarter and introduce the WANDRD Travel Journal. The ultimate tool for planning, enjoying, and remembering all of your adventures – long after your memory has failed you.

The Travel Journal wasn't born in one of those middle of the night "light bulb" revelations. It was born over years and years of road tripping, hostel staying, food connoisseur-ing, and globe-trotting. It is literally the culmination of hundreds of flights (and missed flights), nights spent on floors, language barriers, new cultures, delicious food, questionable food, and everything else that comes with decades of international travel experience.

 
    
 

WANDRD was born when two brothers were planning trips to different parts of the world. Spencer was headed to Paris to attend and take pictures at Fashion Week, and Ryan had rented a small camper van in New Zealand for 10 days. Both were looking for the perfect camera bag to take, but after months of research (and many purchased bags) - they decided to make their own.

The PRVKE Pack was launched on Kickstarter in 2015 and over the course of two campaigns raised more than $500,000. Austin (the oldest brother) joined shortly after the first campaign because a) he didn't want to be left out of all the fun and b) to make sure that Spencer and Ryan didn't run the company into the ground.

What started out as a passion project, has turned into a thriving small company. WANDRD products have now been shipped to over 100 different countries and over 20,000 customers across the world. 

Let's get this out of the way right here at the beginning. We know most of you are attached to your smartphones and palm pilots. There will certainly be comments of "What?! A paper journal (gasp!) in this day and age!?" But this is a non-digital journal by design. There's just something about having a physical place to store your thoughts and memories. There's also no running out of batteries, losing service, or getting distracted by the millions of notifications trying to take over your life.

            

The WANDRD Notebook is for that person that just can't get enough free space or just loves having a notebook that looks and feels like the best notebook you have ever seen. The WANDRD Notebook is the perfect companion to the Travel Journal. Built from the same soft touch cover, smooth 100 GSM paper, and FSC paper. Dotted pages comprise the internals of the notebook giving you all the free space you could ever want and all the freedom you need. 

To add on the WANDRD Notebook to your current pledge, go to "manage your pledge" and increase your pledge amount by $22 for each Notebook you want to add to your reward level. If you wish to only back for a Notebook without a Travel Journal, just pledge $22 for each Notebook. After the campaign is over you will receive a survey to collect information about your pledge.

Our purpose: To influence you to wander*, cultivating an understanding of people, places, and ideas; by sharing and capturing moments.

*To wander is a state of mind as much as it is a physical action.

We may be a small team, but collectively the WANDRD family has been to over 80 countries and all 7 continents. We are our biggest customers and ultimately create the products that we want but can't find on the market.

Risks and challenges

We worked relentlessly during our first three campaigns (from vetting manufacturers to fulfilling orders) and we were able to ship all of our bags on time! On this campaign, we will work with the same calculated professionalism to ensure that these journals are delivered as promised.

We do know in life and in business there are always unforeseeable risks and challenges (that's what makes it fun, right?), and we are committed to putting forth every effort to do right by the customer if or when these situations arise.
