Hey guys. Wow sorry it's been so long since I've posted on here.. school and travel planning has become quite rediculous! anyways so I finished off my work placement with a company that does travel tours for a sports team (how perfect for me) and they gave me $50 Gift Certificate to Europe Bound, which for those of you who don't know, is a travel store with pretty much everything you could ever want in it. I tend to shop accross the street at MEC (Mountain equipment Co-op) so I'm not too sure what I should buy with this $50. I'm looking for cool suggestions... anything you think would be nice.. or just plain fun to have. So think to your own travel stores and those things you really want or have, and let me know !! Thanks

I was think a fleece pull over for cool nights on the move, but i could not see one...so I opted for these 2 items

Neck Pillow for da train and plane rides

and

Ear Plugs for a sound sleep under any conditions...

( And you should get enough change for a slice of pizza!

Oh man! That's hard! If it was up to me, I'd buy the entire shop!!! But right now I think I would appreciate a nice fleece or a pair of cargo pants...Or, a small reading-head-lamp coz I always read at night...

I've been looking for a nice hooded fleece - but they seem to only make them for women.

WTF??? Do men not get cold heads too???

Hmm these are all great ideas.. I've already got a sweet Oakley Hoodie which set me back a good couple bucks, but it's amazing! The reading lamp is a good idea... do you think I should invest in a new "Let's Go"? or "Lonely Planet" (even though I'm a let's go kinda girl) I've also seen some amazing daypacks and stuff. I feel like a kid in a candy store., .. actually no... a kid in a candy store with someone else's money!!!!!!!! hehe.

Maybe I'll just blow it on 5 Nalgenes! all the colours of the rainbow (even though I already have blue, purple and green)
