High-profile travelers don’t leave home without …

Pk1When leaving home for a long trip, what one thing must you take with
you? USA TODAY’s Kitty Bean Yancey put that question to a half-dozen
high-profile travelers. The personal essentials they always tote:

"A 3-by-5 Moleskine notebook/diary, the same
brand that Hemingway and Picasso used. I always get the black one. On
trips, I’m constantly taking notes, sketching. If I meet somebody, I
write down their name and address or I slip in business cards and
magazine clippings. It has an elastic band that goes around it to hold
it together. It’s a record of my life, and you can’t replicate that
with electronics."

Phil Keoghan, host of TV’s The Amazing Race, who logged more than 400,000 miles last year

    Don’t know if it matters or if you care, but that picture isn’t of Phil Keoghan. Here’s his bio: http://www.cbs.com/primetime/amazing_race7/phils_travels/bio/ which includes a pic.
    Great site…
