I’ve been working in North America for most of January (Washington DC, New York and Vancouver to be exact) doing a variety of things – attending a conference, meetings and fieldwork.

I am thinking of starting a series on my stationery constants. I have already discussed one of them this year (the Hightide pen roll that I jointly reviewed with Jenny @ The Finer Point). Another 2016 stationery constant has been that patient companion, the Hobonichi Techo.

I found a Three Potato Four notepad in Papeterie Nota Bene in Montreal (which is an insanely great stationery shop that June Thomas is also a fan of) and I liked it straight away.

I set off from London on Saturday for a business trip to Malaysia, which is very exciting. Naturally this required forethought as to what my stationery carry would be for the trip so I thought I’d do a quick update post (from the plane!) on what I’ve brought with me.
