Also, in the interest of keeping active in learning to see and draw, I think it is a good idea to carry a small sketchbook with you. There are all sorts, but I have come to prefer the white ones with sturdy paper that come in portrait format. They are pretty easy to carry around.
It is also pretty open to choice as far as what medium you choose to draw with. I use pens and ink for their simplicity, but I would hardly recommend one thing only as it is limitless what kinds of art can be made and tools.
If you are just beginning however, I would recommend either a pencil, or pen. That should focus first on acquiring the necessary drafting/rendering skills. That is important before venturing too far into color.
