WTM, or World Travel Market, invited the world to London’s Excel Centre – and the world took up the invite en masse. It was my first experience of the biggest Travel Industry event in the calendar, and suffice to say that I am writing this with matchsticks propping my eyes open. But the four days I spent there were nothing short of unforgattable.
Until I started thinking about how to answer this months’ Across the Cafe Table question posed by the Travel Belles: ‘What’s Your Favourite Travel Shopping Find?’ I had never considered myself a particularly materialistic traveller. Then I looked around my new bedroom in the house I’ve just moved into and realised that a lot of the things making it feel homely and ‘mine’ were related to my travels. I wondered how I would ever pick a favourite.
