I am travelling a little over the next few weeks and as always I have to think about the tools I am taking and how they will be used. My first trip is work related so the tools will be more limited but I wanted to share the items I am taking.
Black Travelers Notebook Regular.
Zebra Sarasa Clip: Vintage Colours.
I love these gel pens and the vintage colours they come in. I have the blue grey, brown grey, green black and red black. These pens write really well, give a really thin crisp line, plus the colours are lovely.
Caran d’Ache coloured pencils.
I only have a few colours but in the rare instance I get a change to draw anything, I want to be able to add some colour. Coloured pencils are easy to travel with, are low maintenance and I can take them almost anywhere with me.
Le Typographe Porte-Mine Mechanical Pencil.
I really enjoy this mechanical pencil especially when travelling. It feels good in your hand when drawing, has a nice line weight on the page and the graphite isn't too dark. Plus the little graphite sharpener hidden away within the pencil means I can sharpen it so easily.
Sakura Pigma Micron Drawing Pens.
I have a few drawing pens with me for my travel in the 02, 03 and 05 sizes. I find these pens easy to draw with and there are no risks of leaks or spills.
Superior Labor Engineer Pouch.
The Superior Labor pouch is great for keeping all my sketching and notebook things together in one place. I can either access this quickly on a plane, or when out and have all the things I need together.
Caroline Gardner Pencil Case.
This pencil case is the perfect slim size to hold a few pencils and drawing pens. I love the orange colour too.
Field Notes National Parks edition.
I will be bringing a Field Notes memo book with me as they are small and portable. With my Travelers Notebook I don't really plan on using this notebook during the trip but I would rather have a small one with me just in case.
Fjallraven Re-Kanken Emerald Bag.
This is a new addition and I have finally succumbed to a Kanken bag. I love the bright green of this Emerald colour.
This is a fairly simple stationery travel kit for me. Usually I bring too much, over complicate and weight myself down rarely using even half of what I bring. This time I tried to be a little more selective and think about the outcome of these tools and not just the tools alone.
