Travel the world with Pandora

VACATION, VACAY, DOWNTIME, BREAK,
TIME OFF, TRIP, R&R, PLAYTIME, LONG WEEKEND, HOLIDAY,
HOLS OR HOLIBOBS.

WHATEVER WORD YOU USE AND WHEREVER YOU GO,
TRAVEL THE WORLD WITH PANDORA.

Once you’ve landed, unpacked the suitcases and loaded the washing machine, reality sets in and your vacation feels like a million years ago. Little mementos from your trip can extend the relaxed holiday feeling, but knick knacks get broken, tea towels are left in the drawer and does anyone ever wear that ‘all I got was this lousy t-shirt’?

Fortunately PANDORA have created the perfect souvenir with a selection of lovely, meaningful charms.

One's destination is never a place, but always a new way of seeing things. ✈ Henry Miller

The journey not the arrival matters. ✈ T.S. Elliot

Once the tickets are booked, it’s time to write the packing list! Over the last few years PANDORA have produced a number of holiday essential charms which are fun for a travel theme bracelet. My personal favourite is the PANDORA Sentimental Snapshots charm which is full of details including a SD card slot, screen and view finder.

Whether you are headed to the beach or a sunny European city, sunglasses are a vacation necessity. The retired Sunshine Diva pendant design has been modernised with the emoji style PANDORA Stay Cool charm. Other holiday essentials for me, include my trusted Birkenstocks plus a novel or two. The cute Flip Flop pendant would be a fun addition to your holiday bracelet, along with the PANDORA Love Reading pendant. Open its pages to reveal the little rhyme, ‘Ignore the things you have to do, and just enjoy a book or two’!

Fundamentals to travel are a suitcase, plane and of course your passport! Recall countries you’ve explored with the sweet PANDORA Passport pendant. The PANDORA Suitcase charm decorated with various destinations, is ideal for the seasoned traveller and the Aeroplane charm is a wonderful accompaniment. 

Avoid the clichéd tourist gifts and elect for an engraved charm for the perfect present. As many of the PANDORA engraved charms are exclusive to the relevant country or state, they make a unique reminder of your travels.

I dislike feeling at home when I'm abroad. ✈ George Bernard Shaw

Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves. ✈ Henry David Thoreau

From New York to Miami, Maryland to Texas, PANDORA has created engraved pendant charms to represent your visit. The Statue of Liberty Dangle features the iconic monument while the Miami Beach Dangle depicts the idyllic vacation spot. If you holiday in Maryland between April to December the PANDORA Maryland Crab Dangle will keep crab season fresh in your memories. Y’all can remember those big hearted friends you made in the Lone Star state with a PANDORA Texas Flag Heart charm.

In addition to dangle charms, PANDORA have engraved specific Murano charms for a special souvenir. I adore the PANDORA Florida Sun Murano charm to represent The Sunshine State and the New York City Murano is cute symbol for the Big Apple! Recall the world-famous Boston lobster you enjoyed with the lively Boston Lobster Murano charm and if you relaxed with a dip into bright blue ocean off Jersey the PANDORA Jersey Shore Murano is a magical memento!

If you have used your vacation time to help others or taken a gap year for charity work, the PANDORA We Rise by Lifting Others and Be the Change charms are a lovely reminder of the valuable achievements you have made.

A wonderful aspect of travel is discovering notable buildings and monuments. As you explore cultural cities, history escapes the classroom, takes its first breath and comes alive!

Don't tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you travelled. ✈ Mohamed

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in you sail. Explore. Dream. Discover. ✈ Mark Twain

New York, London, Paris and Rome… What do they all have in common? As well as being home to the worlds top fashion houses, they all are beautifully depicted in detailed PANDORA charms! Remember the trip of a lifetime to Australia with the realistic PANDORA Sydney Opera House charm or enjoying the marvellous British weather with the iconic Big Ben Pendant charm.

When I visited Rome I enjoyed reenacting a favourite film of mine, the Audrey Hepburn classic Roman Holiday. I fondly remember eating delicious ice cream besides the Trevi Fountain, holding my breath as I placed my hand inside the Mouth of Truth and driving around the colossal Colosseum. This huge landmark is made perfect in miniature with the PANDORA Colosseum Pendant.

A trip to Paris wouldn’t be complete without climbing the steps to the top of the Eiffel Tower. Cherish your time spent in The City of Love with the special two tone version of the PANDORA Eiffel Tower Pendant with a dainty 14ct gold heart.

Once the tan has faded and the suitcases have been packed away for another year, the experiences from your vacation live on.

I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train. ✈ Oscar Wilde

We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfilment. ✈ Hilaire Belloc

For many an essential ingredient to any vacation is an exciting escapade! My favourite holiday adventures include swimming with sea turtles in Malaysia, walking with elephants in Ghana and enjoying the view from a hot air balloon over the River Nile. With a whole assortment to choose from, there is a PANDORA charm for almost every experience!

The retired Safari charm depicts a lion, elephant, wildebeest, cheetah and rhino, the perfect memento of an African savannah. An alternative is the adorable PANDORA Lucky Elephant charm with its trunk held high. The delightful PANDORA All Aboard Cruise charm complete with a tiny swimming pool is a fitting souvenir for your cruise vacation.

The colourful PANDORA Ferris Wheel is a charming reminder of thrilling days out at amusement parks, or if shreddin’ the gnar is you thing, the PANDORA Snowboarder pendant is a perfect way to reminisce about riding the terrain.

Those who prefer a slightly calmer holiday, listening to an opera or watching a ballet, can recall the graceful performance with the pirouetting PANDORA Ballerina pendant or an amazing productions with the sparkling Sweet Music charm.

A gentle sing song of laughing children, the massaging feeling of sand between the toes and calming lullaby of the tide rolling in and out. PANDORA’s tropical selection of charms will keep you chilled long after your beach hair’s detangled!

The world is a book and those who do not travel only read one page. ✈ St Augustine

One doesn't discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time. ✈ Andre Gide

Switch off the phone, open a good book, allow the sea air to blow off the cobwebs and just chill… until it is time to step back into reality! These cheerful charms from PANDORA will ensure sunny memories from your beach trip stay bright. Display Florida vibes with the quirky PANDORA Tropical Flamingo and the retro hues of the Paradise Sunset charm.

The vivid turquoise and teal enamel from the PANDORA Tropical Parrot and Tropical Seahorse pendant charms will add a fun flavour to your travel bracelet. Get fruity with the retired Sparkling Pineapple or the Palm Trees & Coconuts charms. The 14ct gold coconuts are a stunning detail! A more recent option is the dazzling PANDORA Sparkling Palm Tree pendant.

Make a splash with the glittering Tropical Starfish & Sea Shell pendant and the Ocean Life charm. Tiny blue stones that adorn its side illustrate little bubbles rising to the surface. The sweet Playful Dolphin Pendant would be a fantastic reminder of swimming with dolphins, something that is still on my bucket list. The gorgeous, glimmering PANDORA Sea Turtle charm is a brilliant representation of the magnificent sea creatures.

Create an conceptual travel themed bracelet full cultural icons and symbols to illustrate your worldwide wanderings in a fascinating story.

Not all those who wander are lost. ✈ J.R.R. Tolkein

I travel a lot; I hate having my life disrupted my routine. ✈ Caskie Stinnett

Tourists observe but true travellers explore and delve into each countries individual culture. Breath in the fresh scents, taste the unusual cuisine, attempt those tricky dances and don’t worry about being baffled by confusing languages!

Amongst PANDORA’s vast catalogue of charms are countless beauties ready to act as a fitting symbol for your travels. Amazing Asian themed charms include the splendid PANDORA Origami Crane pendant, the eye-catching Lion Dance and Sweet Panda charms. The PANDORA Chinese Doll, Japanese Doll and Korean Doll Pendant charms are wonderful mementoes with stunning traditional dresses.

Depict your trip down under with the sweet PANDORA Kangaroo & Baby and cute Koala charms. Or opt for a subtle Australia feel with the pretty Southern Cross & Kangaroo charm.

Food and drink is a big aspect of travel and the PANDORA Drink to Go and yummy Pretzel charms are ideal for your American vacation. Synonymous with Italy are the tasty PANDORA Love Pasta and Passion for Pizza pendants. Although us English folk try to claim tea as our own, black tea actually originates from India and the PANDORA Enchanted Tea Pot would make a delectable depiction of your time there.

For my Italian holiday I decided on a trio of charms to represent the incredible cities I visited. The PANDORA Coffee Lovers pendant reminds me of the armoatic Espresso coffee I drank in Milan and the cool PANDORA Vespa Scooter pendant brings back to mind the iconic scooter which was constantly visible in Florence. The glittering PANDORA Gondola pendant is a beautiful keepsake to remember a romantic Gondola ride in Venice with my darling husband!

Finally, for those who travel wherever their heart leads them the PANDORA Compass Rose will ensure they are never lost.
