Quo Vadis Dr Paper notebook and Note 21 weekly planner/ diary

These are the new Dr Paper notebook and Note 21 weekly planner/ diary from Quo Vadis UK! The Dr Paper covers have city themes: Amsterdam and Barcelona (shown) and Paris (not shown).


The covers are made from coated card, so they are thin and flexible yet very sturdy. These planners/ diaires and notebooks are very streamlined and lightweight, so they are easy to carry with you everywhere. The paper in them is the classic Clairefontaine paper: 90 gsm, smooth and bright white, perfect for fountain pens.

First up, the Dr Paper notebook. It's A6 (pocket size), very nice and compact. The thin flexible cover lets the book fit easily in your pocket and the elastic closure keeps it securely shut. It's the perfect go-everywhere notebook, and would make an excellent travel journal.


Now, the Note 21 weekly planner/ diary. This is a 16 month diary, which allows you to plan the school year and all the way through the end of the next year in one book. The weekly pages are formatted to keep you organised with each day's Priority, a lined page each week for notes, and a designated space for your task list with boxes to check off.


Tear-off corners mark your current week so you can find your page quickly and easily.

At the beginning of each month there is a two-page monthly calendar! What a fantastic feature! Before each week there is a space to write events happening that week, notes and reminders.



There are loads of other great features too. Time Schedule pages let you write your recurring weekly schedule for easy reference when planning.



Anno-planning pages for the current year (in the front of the book) give you an overview of your entire year in one view. There is also an anno-planner at the back of the book for the following year, where you can write future events and appointments.



Other features include a holiday budget tracker and world time zones map, perfect for traveling!


There are also collections in the back including wish lists and lists of birthdays and holidays for the whole year.


There are also extra pages for notes, and contacts pages.

This book is crammed with useful pages and features, yet is slim and very portable with its compact size and thin flexible (yet very sturdy) cover. The elastic closure keeps it securely closed. This diary is perfect to take with you everywhere you go so you never miss a thing.

The Dr Paper notebook and Note 21 planner/ diary are available (with worldwide shipping) at QuoVadis-Diaries.co.uk.

Quo Vadis Everest weekly planners

Here are some brand-new planners from Quo Vadis UK: The Everest diaries!


These 16 month (Sept-Dec) weekly planners/ diaries have a textured cover and contrasting elastic closure. Shown are the A5 size Planning 21 SD and the pocket (A6) size Business SD.

The flexible covers come in a selection of colors: Caribbean Green, Denim Blue, or Orange. My camera didn't capture the colors very well, but the cover on the left is Caribbean Green and on the right is Denim Blue.

These diaries have a special binding that not only lies open flat but can be folded back on itself. The pages have perforated corners to mark your spot, and a pocket inside the back cover to hold papers, tickets, and cards.

Inside the front cover there is a gorgeous image of Everest. If you look to the right of the photo you can see prayer flags hanging on the hillside. It's a beautiful and inspiring image to have in your planner.


The weekly layout is so functional and easy to use. The two-color print looks crisp and clean. The day spaced are timed 8 am to 9 pm with a space at the top of each day for that day's priority, and a space at the bottom of each day for notes or lists.


To the right of the right page is the weekly dashboard for your categorized lists. This allows you to see what you need to do, alongside your schedule so you can see when you'll have time to do it.


The languages are English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Dutch. Holidays for these countries are indicated on the day spaces.

These planners are packed with features. There is an anno-planner for the current year so you can see the big picture of your year, and for the future year so you can plan ahead.



There are reference calendars, and conversion tables.


And lots of full-color maps! There are maps of France, Germany/ Switzerland/ Austria, Italy, Spain and Portugal, the UK and Ireland, Belgium, Poland/ Czech Republic/ Hungary, and continent maps of Europe, Africa, North and Central America, South America, Asia, Oceana, and a world time zones map.





There are also international telephone access codes, and some pages for notes.

The pocket size Business SD has all the same features. This format works well on the small pages.








Despite being packed with features, these diaries are still very slim and portable.

I have shown the A5 Planning 21 SD and the pocket (A6) size Business SD. This planner is also available in the larger President SD. You can see the entire range of 16-month Everest planners here.

QuoVadis-Diaries.co.uk ships internationally! You can contact them for shipping estimates to your location.
