Short Writing Pen Travel Tip

I found a great pen for travel in the Philippines, however I lose or break about two pens per month and I am down to my last one.

I recommend you purchase extra short pens if possible, a person needs a black ink pen to fill out immigration and customs forms.

I put pens in my pants pocket, in my front backpack, in many places, the longer ones tend to break. Sometimes they come unscrewed and I find only pieces scattered around.

If possible, buy pens in the USA or Europe; I think the qualities of pens are better. A cheap pen can explode ink and destroy your clothes.

Attach a pen to your backpack with a string that can slide into one of the outer pockets. This way you always have one even if it is just a backup! Ziplock bags are great too for storing items in that might have the potential to leak and ruin all your clothes etc. I learned this after the cap on a can of hairspray came off and sprayed my clothes until the can was empty....very irritating!
