Mid Trip Report – Europe July 2015

Europe 2015

I am about halfway through my trip and while I haven’t been actively seeking out pens and pen related items I haven’t been able to avoid them.

While in St. Petersburg I found a nice lacquer miniature box made out of paper mache that fits a pen quite nicely.

Minding my own business at the Warsaw airport, I found a duty free store with some rather bold discount signs in a small section of their Montblanc display and I accidentally bought this Platinum Facet Le Grand fountain pen…oops

Today in Budapest I came across BomoArt’s beautiful little shop.

There I bought some very reasonably priced notebooks as well a Le Typographe propelling pencil with built in lead sharpener.

The interior is lined with a beautiful paper featuring hot air balloons.

I picked up a small 2016 calendar as well.   It has a leather binding and an antique map paper cover.

The paper is very fine…I was told that it holds fountain pen ink well.

I also bought four pairs of shoes (quadruple oops)…but perhaps this would be best suited for another blog.
