The Rifle Paper Co.'s 17-month planner is up for grabs!

Do your new year resolutions include going on more adventures? We sure hope so - and to help you with your planning, in collaboration with One for the Road, we’ve prepared a blog giveaway that’s perfect for our readers to kickstart 2016’s year of travel!

One for the Road was founded as a sole proprietorship by beach-loving Alexandra Lau from the Philippines. She began with one product: a lightweight, compact, and waterproof travel mat. “I go to the beach a lot so I found it necessary and convenient to bring a mat handy for traveling,” she says. “I created one that hardly took up space in my backpack and weighed nothing.”

Eventually, Alex decided to expand and source travel-related goods from around the world and bring them in locally.

“I just started mid-2015,” says Alex. “I pretty much do everything - from sourcing and purchasing to marketing and accounting!” She says the idea was born out of a love for travel and shopping for unique stuff.

“I make it a point to set aside a day or two during my trips abroad to check out local markets and shops... if there's anything that catches my eye, I consider bringing it in.”

Where do you source your products?

A lot of our stuff come from different parts of the States. There are also products from the U.K., South Korea, Hong Kong, and the Netherlands. I try my best to price the stuff as low as I can and still make an acceptable profit (I pay my taxes hehe!).

What are your go-to markets when travelling?

A favorite for me would be Chatuchak in Bangkok. As for others, I really just look for local pop-ups, markets, shopping areas in the countries I visit.

What's on your travel list this 2016?

So far for 2016, I will be going back to Thailand and Japan, Tubbataha Reef for some great diving, New Zealand around the end of the year, and some trips around the Philippines.

How do you like being a female entrepreneur?

So far it's been pretty good. I always love hearing great comments from customers, especially during bazaars I joined during the 2015 holiday season. The business started mid-2015 so it's still pretty new and I'm still getting the hang of managing everything. It's a learning experience everyday, definitely. But it's really important for me that my customers are happy. I know how stressful and disappointing it is when you don't experience good customer service.

The Prize: The Rifle Paper Co.'s Birch planner

Aside from the absolutely gorgeous cover, metallic gold accents, and covered spiral binding (making it a lot easier to write in), it features various sections that are tabbed within the planner: 2016 - 2017 year planners, important dates, notes, monthly planner pages, weekly planner pages and contacts. It's perfect for planning your upcoming trips!
