Beach Christmas morning in Melbourne

If you are part of the Florida-goers North Americans and based on that, you think you know how Christmas is in all hot places you are mistaken. With all the heat and beautiful waters, these trips do not prepare you for what one finds in the land down under.

Twenty Two beautiful fountain pens

Oh! I so like fountain pens! I have owned one since grade one, in fact, that was my first writing tool. I believe it was a Pelican. And yes that should give you a hint at how old I am which I don’t really see it as a problem but rather an advantage. Faber-Castell was,…
