Take a Trip Around the World With Our Travel Christmas Tree

Since Angie and I got married in 2012, we decided to do something different for our Christmas tradition. Instead of getting a new ornament featuring a life milestone from each year (as was my family's tradition growing up), we decided to purchase ornaments from all of the destinations we've visited around the world.

Since then we've visited over 50 countries together and now have a pretty epic tree full of knick-knacks, tchotchkes, keychains, and other obscure purchases that we've converted into ornaments. (Yes, few of our ornaments are true ornaments as designed!)

Today, I wanted to share some of our favorites and the stories behind them. Under each ornament is links to more posts from the country/state to read more about the destination as well!
