Do you collect stuff from your travels? I used to buy a lot of small trinkets and stuff like that until I realized that it makes my backpack heavier and after travelling for six months (continuously) I realized that it eats up my money and weigh me down as well.
Here’s a list of what I came up collecting instead:
1.Passport Stamps and Visa Stickers: I love seeing my passport full of stamps. Whenever someone asks me about my travel collection I always say my passport stamps and visa stickers from different countries is what I collect.
2. Friends: I don’t collect people hehehe… what I do is I interact with as much people as I can and try to enjoy the moment of travelling with them. The people that I met on the road made my trip very memorable and fun. I also keep in touch with some of them thru email. I have some travellers that I met four years ago that I still keep in touch with.
3. Flag Patches: This won’t cost you a lot, maybe it won’t cost you more than a dollar for a single patch. I buy them then sew them over my backpack. And whenever I see my backpack, the flags remind me of the adventures that I’ve had.
