I have two themed travel necklaces that I wear on every trip I’ve ever taken. My two favorite people in the world gave them to me. One is an airplane that my love, Lindsay gave to me. On each wing is a map pattern. One side is her hometown and the other side is Seoul. She said it was to remind me of her on my journeys. The other is a simple round locket with the Brooklyn Bridge hand painted on the inside. My best friend and roommate gave it to me before I left my home in New York City for long-term travel. Giving a necklace like this to a traveler is a way for them to carry you close to their heart and shows you respect their passion for travel, even when it means being apart. Check out some of my favorites below.
