On Friday I packed the younger kids into the station wagon and headed to Trader Joe’s in search of shumai and coconut shrimp. But before I reached the frozen section, this fun card grabbed my attention.
I love vintage travel tags.
Along the top, I spotted stickers from Paris, Casablanca (Hotel Excelsior), Shanghai (Palace Hotel), and Florence.
The stickers in the middle sections include Montevideo, Germany, Mexico City (Hotel Reforma), Lido, Rome, Capri, Naples, Dubrovnik, and Prague.
And along the bottom, France (Hotel Terminus), San Diego (Hotel del Coronado), Singapore (Raffles Hotel), and Havana.
Of the 17 places listed above, I’ve been to Shanghai, Florence, Mexico City, Rome, Prague, Singapore, and Havana. I even stayed at the former Palace (now Peace) Hotel and sat on the veranda of the Raffles while my parents sipped Singapore Slings.
