Spain is a vast country with a wide range of local customs and practices. The diverse nature of Spain makes it a perfect country for an extended visit or a study abroad opportunity. Spain has the Pyrenees Mountains to the north and then a Mediterranean coastline as well as an Atlantic coastline. It has many valleys that are famous for their wine and history, and cities that are known for their festivals.
Over the last couple of trips, I have found collecting souvenirs from my travels has gotten harder. Walking into most tourist shops, it is hard to find souvenirs that aren’t mass produced in places like China. I wouldn’t mind souvenirs made in China while I am in China but I don’t want to buy souvenirs in Colombia that are made in China. I have collected some amazing locally made travel souvenirs from my travels around the world. I asked several of my fellow travel bloggers to share their favorite unique souvenirs.
I have been hunting new carry-on luggage since I started my new job in November. I want a piece of rolling luggage but at the same time, I don’t have to have to deal with things like dragging it up stairs. I was recently approached by Naisha Joseph about her new piece of luggage called TraxPack. Naisha and her good friend Richard Braddock have developed a new piece of luggage to revolutionised the luggage industry. TraxPack removes the struggle of dragging wheeled luggage up stairs. TraxPack’s amazing new system treats your luggage like a tank and has a handle that is vertical and tilted. The handle is vertical when on flat ground but it is tilted while going up the stairs.
I stare at the campsite full sign. This is the last open campsite in Yosemite National Park, California. My travel without a plan plan just failed. I am still in shock. This has never happened before and I was sort of at a loss for what to do. I could usually find a walk up campsite when I arrived in a National Park. It was the middle of the week during late October and I wasn’t expecting camping to be an issue.
