So the first thing to think about before the study visit to Vancouver, with only thirty two days to make a final decision, is which notebook to take. This is serious. It must be easy to carry, look beautiful, allow full use of Lamy or Cross pen without ink smudging the other side of the page and it must inspire.
Awake last night at 4.26am, I found myself reaching for the iPad to check out maps of Vancouver. A case of insominical urgency to compare my own Northumberland sea with the Pacific Ocean that batters the west coast of Vancouver Island.
Because .. that is where I’m going in 8 weeks time. Thank you Winston Churchill Memorial Trust who are funding my study visit. I just can’t believe it.
