Current Goal

To travel the world, just like my namesake. Photos of cache locations would be great, but a simple note explaining your experience with me would be wonderful as well.

About This Item

window seat

My grandmother (who was born in Langdon, ND) passed away last March, at 92. She led quite a remarkable life, most especially after retirement. Leading an austere life up until the end of her days afforded her the opportunity for her one, beloved extravagance: traveling the world. Since the mid-80's I don't think a year went by when she didn't take at least one -- often three -- trips to different countries. She was in Tienanmen Square a day before the violent crackdown on protesters, and went back to China several times afterward. Wherever she went -- Paris, Machu Picchu, Bangkok, etc. -- she took hundreds of photos, eventually filling 2 huge bookshelves with albums from every trip. So this Travel Bug is to take up where she left off: traveling the world, until lost. Yes, the accompanying item is custom-made. As you may already have suspected, it contains a small portion of my grandmother's ashes. Though not especially elegant, it is water-tight and quite secure. Some may find the idea of shuttling dusty remains around the world from hand to hand morbid or immoral. I believe it's no more so than leaving them in a jar on your mantle for visitors to gawk at. If you're offended or uncomfortable at the prospect, please return it to wherever you got it from. Thanks!
