Today I booked my one way ticket to begin my journey around Southeast Asia in exactly one month’s time! I am excited and terrified in equal measure, and I’ve still got a few more things to sort out, as well as a few little side trips to keep me occupied (Amsterdam, Barcelona and Madrid hopefully!)
Anyway, that’s not really what this post is about.
After booking my ticket, my dad handed me a few Singapore dollars and I was reminded of the bowl I had sitting in my room.
The bowl used to sit on top of my bookshelf in my little flat, beneath the bird cage mirror and next to an array of old glass bottles and melted candles.
This became a tradition of sorts, like a little shrine to the different countries around the world and their currencies.
Sometimes, somebody would visit me and tell me of their travel plans, and I would tell them to take out the currency they needed.
It’s little traditions like this, that make good memories and make a place feel like home!
Some of these currencies belong to countries I have never even visited.
Do you have any little traditions in your home?
