  1. Perfect timing for our overseas trip- thank you Karin and Steve!

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. I can thoroughly recommend the Fisher Space Pen....the compact size would be perfect for the A6, but it "upsizes" to a full size pen when you put the cap on the handle. Excellent writing in any conditions, such as rain, or in zero gravity (if you're a bit of a space-person).

  4. The Bullet is the one that I prefer / use, but they come in various guises.

    Rather than post a link to an external website, just Google it....

  5. This was another fantastic podcast. I've had good experiences traveling with my personal Holborn and my pocket Malden. Both have pockets that hold my passport, and the Malden has the back pocket I can use for currency. I've used the Holborn for notes, travel info and the like, and then I've used the pocket Malden as my travel wallet. I added the plastic card holders and used the diary section to note where I was going or little notes from places I visited (museums, cafes, etc.) on the go.
