“Fuchico Omiyage” Cedar Park, 2017

こんばんは。Today Mariko and Bay returned from their three-week+ long trip to Japan with suitcases full of omiyage (gifts) and food in tow. One of the things I received was a new Fuchico “Japan” series figure. It’s pretty fun, silly, and cool! ❤️

While I was waiting at the airport for them to arrive, I made a small sketch in my Traveler’s Notebook. As I was sketching the Jeep, it started to drive away, so I had to hurry and then try to remember what it looked like as I hadn’t quite finished. But I think it turned out ok. I just wish the ink were waterproof so I could watercolor over it. Oh well. Maybe I need to get some waterproof ink for my Kakuno fountain pen in the future.

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Tonight’s photo is of the two Disney pins that I own, and keep on my daily bag. At the Disney parks there are so many cool pins to choose from that it’s hard to decide which one to buy. But it’s fun to take a break from the rides to do a little pin shopping. 😄

I have to say, though, that the selection at the Magic Kingdom and Disneyland seemed to be a lot larger than at EPCOT or Hollywood Studios, and of course featured more of the classic attractions from those parks, which I like the most. For instance, one of the pins in the photo is of the Matterhorn, in a classic style. I love the old Disneyland logo!

My other pin is of a newer ride, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, which I would have never thought I wanted, but I was so impressed with how fun the ride was that I just had to get the pin. It’s cool because the elevator doors slide open to reveal Stitch.

I didn’t find a perfect pin on our last trip to Disney, but one day I’d like to pick up a nice Pirates of the Caribbean pin, Haunted Mansion pin, and then a Wall-E character pin. Something to look forward to!

I hope you had a nice Tuesday.
