Traveling with Lonely Planet, Noteshelf and the iPad

Did you know that there are so many ways to use your iPad beyond the photography apps! I know it is hard to imagine that this wonderful device does more than help create artistic images! But it does!

Lonely Planet PDF's combined with the app Noteshelf make a great travel Journal
While preparing for my Asian adventure I was told that I could purchase PDF's of Lonely Planet books. So I went shopping at and discovered that for $4 each I could purchase just the chapters of the locations I was planning to visit. 

Lonely Planet PDF of the Kathmandu Valley
After downloading the PDF chapters I chose to put them in iBooks for easy referencing. 
Then I thought of a great way I could use the app Noteshelf to help pre plan even more. 
So I made a screen capture of the page I wanted to highlight. Opened Noteshelf and then imported my page. 

Images can be imported into Noteshelf
Next I highlighted, wrote notes and added fun stamps to the page. (See first page.)
I will continue to add to my notebook as I discover more places and things I want to do and see in Kathmandu. 
To have even more fun, I can add my own photographs and create a journal of my adventure as I travel. 

Have a Happy New Year everyone! May your year be full of artistic growth and fulfillment!

The next iPhoneography Classes Available February 13th 2012! I will be out of the country and unavailable for most of January 2012. Upon my return I will have fascinating images from many Asian countries.


  1. WOW, what a great way to document your trip. Thanks for sharing how you are doing this with the iPad.

    Have fun! As always, I enjoy your posts.

    Happy New Year!

  2. Be that as it may, tune in up in light of the fact that the new iPad Pro has included listening ability. Clients can tune in to four implicit speakers, one in each corner. This duplicates the two speakers in the Air 2.
