Where to Next? Returning to Our Roots

Where to Next? (WTN) started in 2014 by two friends who just wanted to tell stories passionately through art and outdoor adventure. Ever since then, they’ve created meaningful planners filled with compelling stories.

For 2022, the theme for the WTN planner is Returning to Our Roots. As stated in one of their pages, “When we learn more about where we came from, we gain a deeper appreciation for who we are now.” One good thing about this planner is that it doesn’t just serve as your ordinary paper planner for writing. It imparts stories that make you realize that our identities are shaped by the communities we belong to. Something to think about!

Planner Specs

The planner is your regular-sized notebook with a brown leatherette cover and is Smyth-sewn, making it easier to write in. It has a ribbon marker for your convenience.

Between filling out your planner, you get to read and see beautiful literary pieces and photographs about people who returned to their roots. It’s like this planner is a book and journal rolled into one.

One interactive page to define your own origin story

On one of the last few pages of the WTN planner, there’s a page dedicated to your own origin story. It lets you write your thoughts as you answer self-guide questions to unearth your roots.

2022 and 2023 calendar

Dateless monthly spreads and weekly pages

We love dateless planners as we have to acknowledge that we have slow days. What we like about their weekly pages is that they have recommended books to read, music to listen to, and things to do.
