It’s summer here in Manila, Philippines and all of us are experiencing the hot glare of the sun everyday. Our whole family is planning a long, road trip to a province in the South where we can swim in the ocean to cool off. This trip could take somewhere between 10 – 12 hours depending on how many stops we make. We’re all looking forward to this. Especially for me who grew up taking various road trips with my parents all throughout the year. My dad loved to travel and he loved to take all of us kids to travel around the country. I have so many memories of our road trips which is why I love road trips.
So when I was asked to read and write a review of Travel Kits: A Simple Way to Bless Others by Donna Rees, I immediately signed up for it because I knew that it was something I would enjoy reading about. While reading it, I was amazed with the idea of creating travel kits for your children or for another family. In my mind, travel kits are just bags of generic toiletries to bring when you travel. Now, travel kits have a totally different meaning and it’s meant to bless others. Travel kits are items you put together in a nice “kit” that a family or your children can open up during the travel. The purpose of each kit is to make the road trip more pleasant and filled with more memories. For someone like me who have no idea how to put together a travel kit, Travel Kits: A Simple Way to Bless Others by Donna Rees is definitely a necessary and a good read.
Ms. Donna Rees teaches us the how’s and why’s of putting together a travel kit. She explains the reasons for creating a kit, and gives a very detailed explanation of how to put it together, how to choose items, how to wrap it up and finally, how to present it. She also added a lot of thoughtful ideas such as including a trash bag with each kit. The ebook is filled with graphics that gave me more ideas on how to create a travel kit. Towards the end of the ebook, she includes a list of useful websites to visit. Also included are ideas from other people that further enhanced the ideas that I learned from the book.
I’m excited to travel with my children this time. We haven’t done that in a long time. This time though, I’ll be sure to prepare my own travel kit for my family so that the long road trip will create better memories for me and my family.
Note: I received a copy of this ebook for free from The Old Schoolhouse Store in exchange for my honest review.
