Ever needed to take a quick look at a subway map but don't want to out yourself as a tourist who doesn't know his way around? This brilliant Moleskine map hack demonstrates how to check your map but keep your street cred.

My Moleskine hack... hides the fact that you are a tourist and can only be used on a soft cover notebook. When you fold the notebook length-wise (when the spine practically touches the long edge of the back cover), the fore-edge of the pages fan out. Only when the notebook is folded this way, does a subway map clearly appear. This is due to the fact that the map is printed on the edge while the notebook is positioned like this. You can hide the fact that you are consulting a subway map and be spared the embarrassment and scorn from locals.
If you're heading into unfamiliar territory for a holiday, this trick could come in very handy.
