[Product Review] Travel Is My Drug of Choice

Once the travel bug bites, there is no known antidote, and I know that I shall be happily infected until the end of my life.” – Michael Palin

I don’t know what it is, but once you start traveling, it is really hard to stop. The reason why I love this shirt so much is that it is me. Having traveled to at least one international country a year beginning about five years ago, I feel kind of down and out when a year has gone by and I have not left the country. The way my mother put it, it’s like I am jonesing if I am not able to travel as far as I want to go. Now that I think about it, she is right. Travel is my drug of choice.

I decided to rock this shirt as I went out to run errands. What I like about the material of the shirt is that it is comfortable. It is not too thin nor is it too thick, neither too hot to wear in 90-degree weather. One of my errands was a grocery store run. I received two compliments on the shirt. Now, one of my concerns about the shirt is whether the word drug is too big and the word travel is too small, so after saying thank you, in my mind I wonder, which part do they like about the shirt? But hey it does turn heads!

I support women businesses. I am wearing one of many tee's from the small fashion brand named Courtesy of Culture founded by Aderia Johnson. They specialize in fashion products that promote a combination of travel and inspiration. With t-shirts of various travel quotes, and sizes for women and men, Simple yet modern, it is a shirt you will want to wear whenever you go to a new place. Do you love to travel? Do you agree with being addicted to travel? Last but not least, do you love Beyonce?

Then you should purchase a tee to rock on your travels! See below to learn more about the brand.

Recommendation: For my African American and Latina ladies with wonderful curves, be sure to buy a size bigger than the one you usually wear, because the current maker of the tees is American Apparel.
