I’ve probably had my share of travelling for this summer, especially now that my passport’s off for visa conversion. From the windy lakes to the green and gold of the Cotswolds, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience within the UK this year.
I don’t know about you, but I tend to find myself either (1) staring into the sky or (2) penning down my thoughts whilst on a trip. Those few moments of solitude are perhaps my desperate attempts to create precious memories. It was such a pity I didn’t have a journal small enough for me to bring around and record my experience.
Imagine how thrilled I was when I received my first traveler’s journal from Pen Heaven! I can finally jump on the bandwagon and indulge myself in all those beautiful TN accessories. On top of that, I got ‘Artsynibs’ embossed on the cover in gold. How awesome is that!
If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you would know that I hardly ever use a ballpoint pen. So to get me to use one, there must be a mighty fine selling point. Cues the entrance of the Fisher Rainbow Titanium Nitride Bullet Space Pen. What a mouthful.
For the longest time, Shaun has been raving about this pen. If there’s a pen snob, it’s my husband. But this is one ballpoint that he’d die to have. Compact and nicely balanced when the cap is posted, it’s said that this pen can write on almost any surface. We’ve tried it on glass and it works! So for his early 30th birthday, I thought to get something engraved on the pen for him.
Completing my sleek team is a grey Worther Shorty pencil. It’s quite a pity I didn’t receive these babies from Pen Heaven before my trip. But we’ve got a series of travelling to do once we get our passports back, so they’ll definitely come in handy.
I did appreciate the prompt delivery, especially when I had 2 items that required engraving. The cherry on top was definitely the beautifully wrapped packages, perfect for sending it as a gift. Especially when it comes to writing instruments, they tend to be very personal. Time to start thinking about Christmas gifts, maybe?
How do you usually capture your travel memories?
