Top Submissions from Project: Share a Photo of Something You Can’t Travel Without
This project is brought to you by Marriott Hotels & Resorts®
In October, GOOD teamed up with the hospitality experts Marriott Hotels & Resorts to learn about the one item you can’t travel without. 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.
We received a lot of submissions and picked out our top 10 favorites below:

I can't travel anywhere without a pillow and my journal. When you are going someplace new you never know what to expect, and I can sleep anywhere as long as I have a pillow. Pillows also make traveling a lot more comfortable. I always bring my journal as well, so I can document all the wonderful things I am experiencing and so I never forget the magical moments.

I always wear these rings that were given to me from my grandfather even when I travel. They're my good luck charms.
I always travel with my favorite boots. They're snow proof, water proof, and so fashionable!
