Do you have an outfit that you bought outside a temple in Thailand? A painting you bought off the streets of Ghana? A soup bowl you got in Turkey’s Grand Bizarre? Do you save postcards, room keys, plane tickets, jewels, or other souvenirs from your travels? How about rocks, shells, or sea glass from beaches near and far?
We’re surrounded by things from our travels that bring us joy. But all too often, only the people living in our houses get to see and share in that joy. We keep these memories to ourselves when we know that sharing them not only lights us up, but passes the spark onto others.
That’s why we’re inviting you to bring those things to an adult “show & tell” and share your stories. Join us to show the photos and objects from your adventures to relive and connect more deeply with your fellow travelers.
If you remember show and tell from elementary school days that’s what this story-sharing gathering will be all about. It’s highly interactive. If you’d like to participate, bring something (anything!) and tell us about one of your travel experiences. If you’d like to observe, you’re welcome to do that too.
It may be true that the best things in life aren’t things… yet things have a way of holding onto the memories of some of the best things in life. And if you’re part of this network, travel is one of the best things in life!
Walk away from this sessions feeling more connected to your travels and your new travel friends.
