TRAVELLERS ALWAYS THINK ABOUT SUFFICIENT ITEMS THAT ARE EASY TO USE AND TAKE WITH YOU ON A TRIP. BUT, SOMETIMES, WE JUST WANT SOME FUN STUFF. MAYBE NOT EVEN TO TAKE WITH YOU ON YOUR TRIP BUT JUST TO HAVE AT HOME. HERE ARE MY 10 FAVOURITE FUN ITEMS FOR TRAVEL FANS, SOME JUST TO HAVE AT HOME AND SOME TO BRIGHTEN UP YOUR TRIP.
1. Scratch map
This map is a great poster, but apart from that, it is also a way to keep track of where you have been. You can scratch away the countries or parts of countries you have been too and they will have a colourized version underneath. The more countries you travel to, the more colourful the map gets. I got this map myself and hope to make up much more colourfull this year.
2. Travel Diary
Keeping a journal while on the road may be the best way for you to remember your trip. This travel diary has it all, a place for financials, new contacts, maps and advice. Of course, it also has a lot of empty pages for you to write your stories on.
3. Cruiser Skateboard
You can take this cutie anywhere and once you get the hang of it, it can easily take you anywhere a bike can. The great thing is that it is much smaller than a bike and that you can even hook it up to your backpack!
4. Continent Pillows
Yes, most travellers might seem like adrenaline junkies who never sit still and what to see everything and meet everyone, but I honestly believe that everyone loves to sit and relax every once in a while. Be honest, you can’t be up and running all the time, I know I can’t. So get a cuppa tea and make yourself comfy with these continent pillows.
5. Travel Coasters
Coasters can easily brighten up that simple black coffee table while protecting it from rings. These coasters will do even more than that, they’ll remind you of your favourite trips.
Every traveller knows that travelling without speakers sucks. Every once in a while you want to play music out loud, for example when you are hanging out with a group of fellow travellers, but you don’t want to use your mobile phone speakers. This tiny speaker is the perfect tool to bring along on those chill afternoons. Not only does it upgrade your sounds, it is also a beer opener! What more could you want?
7. Cork Globe
Stick a pin in this globe on the places you’ve been and keep track of your travels. Other than that it, of course, is still a globe so if you need to check out where that one state in America is again, you got your globe right there.
Warning: buying all of these items for your home might be overdoing it 😉
