I’ll be taking a short break from blogging while I’m in Paris and Bulgaria for the next few weeks. If you want a postcard from Bulgaria, get in touch right here with a mailing address. (I guess you could request a postcard from Paris if you preferred, but let’s be real — how often do you get mail from Bulgaria?)
Between this weekend’s eclipse festivities and getting ready for an imminent trip to Europe, I didn’t get a chance to write a full post this week. Instead, take a look at this little gem that arrived at the post office today:
I’d been debating whether or not to take any fountain pens with me because I don’t want to deal with the hassle of leaking ink, but now I’m thinking about taking this one. I can just toss the cartridge before my flight home.
It would definitely be nice to have a fountain pen along, as I’m bringing my Hobonichi with me, along with the Traveler’s Notebook I use to document my various adventures.
Speaking of adventures, if you have any favorite places in Paris, France, I’d be delighted to hear of them.
As Economical Penster HQ sat squarely in the path of totality for today’s solar eclipse, this post is later than usual. It also has more photos than usual. These were all taken at the Portland pen gathering this past Saturday.
If you live in the vicinity of Portland, Oregon, mark your calendar on July 15th for the 5th Annual Northwest Pen Roundup. It might not be as big and fancy as other pen shows, but the Lucky Lab Brewing Co. is a wonderful venue and you’re sure to have a great time.
If you live in the US, you can find some good prices on Iroshizuku inks from certain sellers on Amazon.com.
All of the following are 50ml bottles. Each one is in stock (as of time of this posting), includes free Prime shipping, and ships from the US, so you won’t be waiting for the slow boat from Japan to bring your goodies to you.
