Look! A Photo Sunday on Sunday! Quel suprise! (I'm pretty sure that is what a surprise in French)
This one comes to you from the Cherry Blossom Festival in D.C.
I love pictures with bracelets or hands in focus with something scenic in the background. For this picture we have a blurry Washington Monument behind my hand and my El Camino bracelet.
Since I have already written a full post on the Cherry Blossom Festival in D.C., this Photo Sunday will talk about my El Camino instead.
Firstly, I do love my bracelet. El Camino bracelets are handmade travel bracelets. Every one is handcrafted in England. They are a tad pricey, but I am willing to pay a bit more for things that are handmade. The company is also super friendly and helpful, so I'm willing to pay a bit more for that as well. After I ordered it, the company sent me an email asking for my opinion. That's costumer service right there. Also, when I tag them on Instagram they always comment; they're pretty cool.
The bracelet consists of a band you can get in multiple sizes and colors, being American I messed up the size a bit since I only know inches and mine is a tad too big. Then you pick what to put on it. There are the wooden spacers, country steps, small steps, and region beads. I don't have any region beads or small steps, yet. I have almost every country I've been too, though not the United States.
Though they're a bit expensive, I am definitely planning on buying more steps, including some small steps that have personal significance to me, and I hope to fill multiple bracelets. It is a fashionable way to commemorate your travels.
Plus it is such a bragging right. :P
I first heard about El Camino bracelets from a wonderful blogger I follow This Battered Suitcase. If you're interested in her blog, or the original article I read about El Camino, follow the link.

Anyone have an El Camino? What do you think?
P.S. This post was in no way sponsored by El Camino. I bought the bracelet after reading the above post and loving the idea of them. Like I said, they are a bit pricey but I think it is worth it.
