Hello Fountain Pen Network fellows!

 

My name is Afonso and I've been a Pen & specially Montblanc aficionado for some years.

Been a reader for quite a while, but only registering now.

 

Any fellows from Portugal?

 

Hoping to continue to learn, and sharing some info in the future.

 

Thanks!

 

Best from Lisbon,

Afonso

Hello Afonso, and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

Hello Afonso,

 

Not from Portugal, but my parents emigrated to the United States from there and I still have family there, including in Lisbon.

 

Welcome!
