I am looking for a blank journal, preferably leather-bound, which will survive for many years and many adventures. Suggestions?

Two weeks from right now, I'll be in the air on my first real trip, which is also my honeymoon, and I need to get a journal. I want to devote it solely to travelling, and I'd like it to last long enough to refresh my memories when I'm old and gray. I'd like it to be:
leather-bound, or something else classic,
small enough for travel,
not a Moleskine (I have enough already),
I saw these two threads, but all the answers point at really high-end leather goods. I just want a quality journal. Can I find something like this at a Borders or Barnes and Noble? Other than brands, what characteristics should I look for (i.e. sewn binding, acid-free, "archival," etc.)?
Bonus question, what should I use to write in it?
