“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta
Traveling offers us a glimpse into another culture – another world. Author Anais Nin said that “we travel, some of us forever, to seek other places, other lives, other souls.” If you love to travel as I do, then you’ll understand just what I mean. Travel is an adventure. Travel is exhilarating. Travel satiates curiosity and wonder. One of the most important things to consider if you are planning a trip, is to figure out your clothing and packing plan. Pack too much, and will cramp your style. Pack too little, and you’ll be shopping instead of exploring on your travels. In my years of travel, the one thing I’ve learned is essential in my packing list is a scarf. Cambodian scarves are perfect for travel. You may be surprised by this statement – after all – a scarf is usually considered to be just a fashion accessory. But, when you travel, it is transformed into the most useful item in your luggage.
– Transportation Uses
Cambodian scarves can be very useful while you are traveling to and around your destination. A scarf can be used as a blanket if your neighbor on the plane wants the air on full blast. And, if you decided not to bring along a travel pillow, your scarf can be bunched up and pull duty as a micro-pillow to cushion your head.
– Additional Coverage
There are many beautiful sights to take in while you travel. One of these sights are the many churches throughout Europe. The architecture, mosaics and statutes in these churches are highlights of many of my trips. But, in some places (like in Italy), you cannot wear shorts or sleeveless shirts while inside the church. If you are traveling in the summer, this can be a problem. But, if you packed a scarf, you have a quick fix. Simply wrap the scarf around your shoulders, or around your waist to cover your legs, and you can go into any church you want to explore!
– Freshen Your Wardrobe
If you opted to pack lighter for your travel adventures, bringing a scarf will lend a freshness to your wardrobe. Adding a scarf can dress up an outfit, or can provide additional coverage if one of the days is chilly. One of my favorite things to do is to buy additional scarves while traveling. This way you get to bring home a souvenir of your trip while adding a beautiful scarf to your wardrobe!
