Travel Favourites BIRTHDAY EDITION 2017!

Last month I had a fantastic time in Porto celebrating my very last birthday in my twenties (eek!) but on top of that I received some amazing travel themed presents from family and friends that I’m still obsessing over!

Here are my five favourites:

1) National Geographic- The Most Popular Instagram Photos

2) Vintage Map Passport Holder

3) The Ultimate Travel Planner Workbook

4) Locations Frame (sorry, homemade footsteppers!)

5) “I’m kind of a big deal on my blog” mug

Do you have any of these products? Do you love travel themed gifts for your birthday? Let me know in the comments below ?

    I havent but I would love the National Geographic book to get some inspiration :)

    • Mel

      Can’t go wrong with National Geographic ;)

  • I love the passport cover! I should really get one because my passports always get so beat up before they actually expire!

    • Mel

      Me too, my passport is so fancy teehee! It’ll keep it good as new for a bit longer :)

  • Ohhh that National Geographic book is probably one of the first things I would buy when I finally do settle down from nomad life!

    • Mel

      All you need now is the coffee table ;)

  • LOL I don’t have any of them – but your family obviously knows you well! Happy belated birthday

    • Mel

      Haha they certainly do! :)

  • Tamara Wilcox

    Fun gift ideas. Your friends and family are pretty thoughtful if they give you travel-related gifts! The mug was awesome!
