Always on:

Lamy Safari with Lamy Ink.

Moleskine pocket diary / planner.

Ricoh GR1s / GR21 with Ilford XP2.

Jintan Silver.

Motofone F3.

This is my essential travel kit, always in vest pockets no matter where I go.

I’ve shown you mine, would you show me yours?

{Please send across your picture + short description of a favorite travel kit [image at least 720 pixels across]}.

Huzzah – more at last! Reproduced below are the essential travel kits of Emily at OrangeBeautiful [she blogs here] and Joshua at Sidedown [he blogs here]. For details and specifications, please follow these links : Emily, Joshua.

Thanks for sharing these with us [and for the finely crafted images] – keep them coming, folks.




And we have another example of a constant companion – here’s what the author of a blog I enjoy and visit regularly carries with him at all times. Jason, thanks for sharing!

    Emily and I will each accept this challenge as we prepare for our trip.

    Excellent! As for rules, there are none but one : the kit must be able to be a constant companion, not special for one particular day / special event. I can easily see how a handsome Zeiss spotting scope would make my little Ricoh feel quite inadequate.

    Have a great trip!
