I was recently asked about a scarf that I often travel with and I thought I’d write a blog post on the subject. How much is there to say about a scarf? Well, a few points I thought I’d share. The scarf I always travel with is a lightweight, inexpensive one from Gap, similar though not identical to the one pictured here. It’s so handy and I love traveling with it for a number of reasons. First, I’m always cold, especially on airplanes. Having this wrap handy means I don’t have to cover up with the airline issued blankets that often look like they’ve seen better days. (It’s hard to get cozy in a blanket that’s been used by countless other passengers, no?) It’s great to have a scarf like this on hand for chilly evenings but even more useful is when you’re visiting holy sites. Frequently along my travels, I’ve arrived at places where, despite the raging heat, covering up is mandatory as a sign of respect and reverence – the Taj Mahal in Agra, the Grand Palace in Bangkok and The Western Wall in Jerusalem are a few that jump to mind. This particular scarf is so light and it doesn’t wrinkle, making it the perfect travel accessory. You just never know when you’ll need it!
