I don’t mean to rub it in, but I was recently on a ten day vacation. On an island. In the Caribbean. Don’t get too jealous about how I went swimming in the sea for a few hours everyday, slept in until 10a or 11a, caught fresh tuna, and climbed a waterfall. I wish you could have been there! I visited Trinidad and Tobago for the first time. My mom and I spent the whole time in Buccoo, Tobago. This post isn’t necessarily to tell you about the amazing time I had in perfect weather that fluctuated from 85 at night to 89 during the day. I’m telling you about the promotional products I took on my vacation. Each item was used frequently, had a logo on it, and I will be bringing them on future vacations!
Here is my checklist: neck pillow, nausea relief bands, sunscreen, waterproof cellphone case, neck cooling scarf, breathable T-shirt, pop socket, hand sanitizer, power bank, ear plugs.
The weather was so hot and humid, and air conditioners were rather scarce. I put the cooling scarf in the freezer for some ice cold relief! I would not have survived without it. I started getting headaches from the heat every day around 2 or 3. Ten minutes after putting the scarf around my neck or head, and I was ready for more Liming! You may be wondering, what is “liming?” Liming is an activity involving relaxation, conversation, food and drink. “To lime,” is what I would call “to chill,” back in Minnesota.
As my mom and I are boarding our first flight, she pulls out a pair of ear buds with the Corporate Recognition logo. She’s had them for years and says she received them as a promotional mailer. It just goes to show, promotional products can go full circle sometimes!
Here are some vacation pictures :)
Fresh caught tuna. I also saw a sail (flying) fish.
This is Grange Beach. We swam here every day!
This is also from Grange beach. Just an hour or so before sun down.
This is Nylon Pool and No Man’s Land. I suggest checking in out. We saw several sting rays. The sand is crushed coral. I’ve never seen anything like it! I’m also wearing my Storm Creek, mesh t-shirt. This was a perfect, light-weight, option. I wore it several times. I was sun burned badly within the first couple days. I had to stay covered up and this was breathable enough to keep me cool, but protected from the sun.
