Treasures of the Travel Box

Standard

Some people keep seasonal boxes in their basements or garages. Living in a studio apartment, our storage space is limited to the top of the closet or under the bed. No ornaments or seasonal decorations for us, instead, we have a travel box. It’s what we pull out whenever travel calls and most of its items make the journey. Some are reserved for specific types of travel while most make the cut no matter what. No need for a sleeping mat when a hotel or resort is involved and we might not need the strongest ‘Deet’ percentage bug spray when headed to London in autumn; but, most of our essentials are housed in that special box that holds memories, logistical tools and a recipe for an adventure.
