Top Submissions from Project: Share a Photo of Something You Can’t Travel Without
This project is brought to you by Marriott Hotels & Resorts®

The GOOD community showed their true colors by submitting some traditional items and some less common ones. Check out the post below to see 10 items community members refuse to leave home without.

I always wear these rings that were given to me from my grandfather even when I travel. They're my good luck charms.
