The Irish say: "May the strength of three be in your journey", the Three being The Holy Trinity. And it is true - many people (and their friends and relatives) seek extra help when they are travelling on a journey - hoping for some sort of protection from danger and harm. Tokens or other talismans have always been a method to help ensure good luck on people's travels - wherever they are going for their trip.
On the Camino de Santiago - the route the Christians took in the Middle Ages Europe, pilgrims took stone talismans (as now) for good fortune which they would deliver at the end of their journey. There, in the great Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain, they would receive a Concha Shell as recognition of their achievement. Many of a Christian faith would also carry the ' cross of the pilgrims ' - the Tau Cross (details on our other website)
Our good luck gifts for Travelling all have special meaning to offer protection and good luck for a journey . . and are often given as a going away present. For example, we have a large selection of concha shell jewellery from the Camino of Santiago in Spain - the pilgrim journey that takes people across Spain to the great Cathedral in Santiago, as well as crosses of St James Way. Of course we have St Christopher jewellery too - the patron Saint who offers protection to all people travelling on a journey. Other lucky talismans include Guardian Angels, Ladybirds, Tau crosses and Indalos - each one making a great good luck gift in its own special way.
Do you know someone who could benefit from some extra special luck on their travels - or even, for example, during a Gap Year from college: Gap Years are hugely popular these days, as a year out of University or studies, or even from work. Some gap year travellers end up in one place volunteering their services for free in return for board and lodging, before continuing on their journey. Others spend their whole trip travelling - commonly backpacking from one place to the next, from one travel experience to the next. And it is these that worry parents the most: The thought of their loved-one in precarious situations on their own. So a small gift before they leave, like a lucky Indalo for protection, for example, or possibly something a bit more religious like a Cross of St James, a Guardian Angel, or a St Christopher, can help soothe these anxieties - for the parents, if not for their children! Why not give them a good luck gift for their trip as a going away present, and make them feel more lucky, more confident, and more secure during their time away. Wishing them good luck on their Travels with a lucky token, will also make you feel more confident that they will stay safe during their journey. See our shop (below) or SEARCH for Gifts for Travel
