Best Festivus Gift you got or gave this season?

Postby sinecure » Thu Dec 30, 2010 2:01 am

The wrapping paper is in the recycle bin, the boxes are flattened and you're dying to tell us all with what the coolest travel related item you got this season.

Was it the full set of every lonely planet book ever made? Was it a travel toothbrush that brushes your teeth while you sleep? Or a fully paid for GAP trip from your best friend?!

There's no prize for best gift only making us all green with envy! :mrgreen:

Nice one Sinecure, will be interesting to find out what everyone got.
We gave each other similar presents coincidentally, but mine to Kay was just a wee bit more modern. Bought her the biggest digital photo frame to display the 1,000's of travel photos we have. First 15.7'' screen one we set it up on Christmas day, and were avidly watching it... and it scrambled all the photos and lost them. So back to the shop to exchange. And the new one goes well.

Meantime my wife gave me a mounted photo, this one-

I'm giving myself the courage to spend the money (OMG the airfare!) and go to Madagascar. I can always eat dog food later, right?

Travel is always worth whatever sacrifices we have to make. Light some candles, use your good dishes, and look through your travel pictures as you dine, it will make it more palatable! :lol:
