I don’t know about you but we love to travel. Between the two of us, we’ve been to over 20 countries. We vowed to give our kids that same experience but there are just a few things standing in the way —
- Work Schedules
- School Schedules
- Travel for a family of 5 is expensive!
That’s why I was so glad to find ViCarryUs. ViCarryUs is a monthly subscription box that brings the world to you. Each box contains 8-10 items from a different country that will bring the experience of being in that country into your own home. That basically solves all of our travel obstacles in one box!
This month’s box took us all the way to Johannesburg, South Africa!
We loved all of the items in the box but of course, our little one and I had different tastes in terms of our favorites.
Her favorite was the Fizzer candy — which wasn’t a complete surprise! There were so many options that it was hard for me to pick one favorite…so I picked two.
The Zulu Love Letters was definitely number one on my list.
I love the story behind it. These are beaded messages that are given by Zulu maidens to their loved as symbols of their love and affection. Each color has a different meaning.
My second favorite was the notebook.
As a child, my grandmother had a set of three porcelain elephants. The notebook that came in this box had the most regal elephant on the cover and that alone grabbed my attention. The natural materials that were used to construct the notebook also added a nice, authentic touch.
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to South Africa — thanks ViCarryUs!
