October has been fairly light in terms of travel but duty called. This time the duties as a hockey mom which involved going with my son and his team to the city of Kitchener for a hockey tournament. Originally this was supposed to be a 3 day trip but cut short by the sad reality that our team did not make it into the final day of the tournament. On a positive note, it gave me an opportunity to plan another pen + ink load out.
Apart from my must-bring Hobo and TN, I wanted to bring whatever pens and paper I could fit inside a larger case. The case I had in mind was the A5 sized Lihit Lab Teffa Bag in Bag. I was expecting to travel a lot from rink to rink and I wanted a self-contained writing tool kit that I could bring along.Read More
Last Wednesday, I posted some picturesI took on a recent hike. In fact, I went on a 1 night, 1 day get away trip to the cottage with the family. To be precise, we headed up on Friday night, September 30th. And headed back home on October 1st. I pondered a bit on what pens I should take seeing as I still had a couple of September inked pens to use up and my planned pens for October were only partially inked up. So, I did what any rational pen addict would do for a 1 day trip that starts at the last day of one month and ends on the first day of the next month: I took all pens in sight!Read More

We hung out around home for the Labour Day weekend, however, my little guy _did_ want to spend a day at Canada's Wonderland. He's sprouted a few inches since the last time we went and was ready to take on some thrill rides. Of course we obliged.
I prepared what I was going to bring the night before the outing. I was expecting long waits in the blazing sun, complete soakings from the water rides and violent agitation from the roller coasters. Light but durable were the themes of the day in terms of writing instruments and stationery.Read More
After coming home from my annual family cottage vacation, I barely got my luggage unpacked before repacking for a short trip to Philadelphia. A few days was for working but there was a little time for sightseeing too.
Since this would be shorter trip I decided to pack lightly in terms of writing instruments and stationery especially since I was intending NOT to check any baggage.Read More
Summertime in Canada means cottaging. The August long weekend kicked off the start of my annual family summer holiday at the cottage.
This summer I've continued a new tradition that I started last year with my little guy...we go on a early morning paddle to the local village docks and head to the cafe for breakfast. This year I tried to spend some time there to explore the antique shop, enjoy my latte and do some journaling.
So, is it a good idea to take notebooks and fountain pens on a kayak? What does a fountain pen and stationery addict take on the water? Since it's a short trip, I wanted to keep things light. This is what I brought...Read More
