Travel souvenirs

I always pack goodies on my adventures, partly because I’m a snacker but mostly because I know that I will have room to bring back some souvenirs.

For many trips, I shied away from buying anything plus most touristy locations all have the same crap. I now look for unique items that tell a story and won’t be just be out on a shelf to collect dust.

My main room has a travel theme. So for myself, I collect mini liquor bottles that have the destination on the labels. I also have a shelf now that has smaller pottery and local textiles. But my most prized possessions are the personal pictures that I have blown up or printed, along with my fav motivational quotes. Recently, I have also been looking for small destination stickers to adorn my new water bottle as I’m passionate about lessening our impact with single use plastic bottles.

What do you look for or like to bring back upon your journey home?

Love adventure travel, work hard & play hard, happy in both extremes - relaxing on a remote beach or rappelling down cliffs, take joy in simple things, love being on & near the water, visited 55 countries & 47 states so far in this crazy beautiful life! Goals by my 50th birthday - 50 states. 75 countries. 50 national parks. Be in Antarctica on my big day.
