What’s the dumbest thing you’ve taken abroad?
I’m writing a blog post every day in November as part of a writing challenge. Read why here.
Today is the first of 3 let’s-blog-together Wednesdays as part of my 3-on-3 November Mini-Challenge. This weeks question?
Q. 1 What’s the dumbest (or weirdest) thing you’ve taken abroad?
My answer? I sure have taken a lot of dumb things abroad. Like…
The 22 pairs of shoes I lugged to Germany.
I know how many I brought because my Mom counted them before I left. Hey, I was a teenager and moving abroad for a year.
The can of pineapple I carried all over Europe in my backpack. That I never ate.
I was a poor college student and thought it might be useful if I ran out of money.
The huge camera + case when I really only wanted to take simple snapshots.
In college I was a wannabe photographer with a photographer boyfriend.
The teal-colored mini blow-up palm tree.
Again, I was 16 and wanted something to decorate my new bedroom. At least I could deflate it so it didn’t take up that much room in my suitcase.
My entire key chain collection.
Not really sure why I thought this was a good idea. Room decoration? Reminders of home? Conversation starters? No idea.
