There is something that I don’t understand after traveling internationally… why don’t people have pens?! I mean, if you are traveling internationally and you are a tourist, why wouldn’t you carry a pen? I think that people tend to forget that they need to fill out immigration cards before they are granted entry into a country. I always carry at least 2 pens with me in my carry on/and or purse. For one thing, I know that I will have to fill out immigration forms and 2, I like keeping a travel journal.
Do yourself a favor and keep a pen or two in your carry on and/or purse, you will never know when you really need a pen to write down a quick recommendation or when you are holding up the immigration line.
