My trip to North America in January presented an opportunity to visit New York City, and I couldn’t say no. Amongst other things, I spent a wonderful hour perusing pencils in Caroline Weaver’s lovely new space on Orchard Street.
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. A few weeks away means a fairly substantive travel carry. Here’s what’s in my pencilcase for this chilly trip.
And now, for something a little different. As you may have noticed from my occasional travel carry posts (when I am prepared enough to write about them in advance), I travel fairly regularly for work. Today I’m writing about a stack of notebooks that were given to my team by Nanjing Metro.
As much as any stationery lover enjoys their pens, pencils, inks and desk tools, the receptacle for these prized items is important too. I recently bought myself the beautiful P.A.P Fiffi Pencase Folder in Norway for days when I want a minimal everyday carry.
This post has been bumped right up my schedule because I’m too excited not to share it with you. Today I’m writing about my recent trip to Field Notes HQ in Chicago.
I’ve been working in Leipzig since Monday, a city I have never visited before. As with any business trip, I meticulously planned my stationery everyday carry. I’m attending a summit consisting of several talks, panel sessions and technical visits, so my stationery carry is geared towards easy notetaking and brainstorming.
In November last year I entered a competition at the newly-opened Design Museum in London, to win a NotAnotherBill gift subscription. And I won! Three months of complementary gifts came in the post, and today I’m reviewing what I received. Also, for the first time on The London Parchment I’m hosting a giveaway, to pay my luck forward that I had when I won this gift subscription.
I’m off to India on a business trip and have carefully compiled my travel carry that I’ll be sharing with you today. I’ll be spending more time outdoors on this trip compared to my trip to Malaysia, so my carry needs to reflect these uses. I’ve focused on packing tools that are reliable, easy to reach for and will take a beating if necessary, as well as including a couple of new products.
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.
