My Travel Tradition

Thank you for stopping by my blog. This month's travel post is about travel traditions. Mine started 10 years ago on our second vacation together. My husband and I had been dating for a little over 2 years when we traveled with a few friends to Miami, Florida. We walked into a  local shop and one of the picture frames caught our attention, so we decided to purchase it as a reminder of our time in Miami. We found ourselves in London and Paris later that year (more like I planned a trip and he wanted to come along, lol) and we picked up frames from these cities too. 

These frames represent memories and there is a story behind every picture in each frame. It used to be just the two of us in each photo but its grown from three and now four:-) These frames are one of my most priceless possessions. 

Our plan is to continue with this tradition and hopefully our children continue with it. It brings a smile to face, when my son sees these frames and has a story to share. I see myself sharing it with my grand kids and telling stories about our lives, by God's grace. I decided to share this today to challenge someone to start some kind of tradition. Start something today, something simple that you can commit to and pass on to the next generation. Snow globes, fridge magnets, are examples of other travel souvenirs that you can start a travel tradition with.

Here are a few of my favs

Where to Buy Picture Frames

Picture frames are an inexpensive keepsake that can be found in every city (I am yet to visit a city where I had difficulties finding one.) You can find them at souvenir stores, which are typically close to tourist attractions or simply purchase one at the airport; although they are usually more expensive there. Thank you for reading and please leave a comment to let me know what you think:-)


  1. Awww, I love that! I used to buy fitted t-shirts from every city I traveled to. Some friends actually would buy them for me whenever THEY traveled to. My sister collects shot glasses from our travel destinations.

    I also used to buy locally made jewelry, but may transition to buying mugs/teacups because I love them.

    Oh and fridge magnets and key holders too.

    Now I'm thinking about what tradition I want to start.

  4. Love looking at them. I used to do snow globes but haven't been consistent. I may just copy this moving forward. LOL.
