Travel Superstitions Around The World

Travelling can be a stressful time and everyone wants their plans to run as smoothly as possible on the day, so the last thing anybody needs is luck plotting against them. Maybe that is why so many of us follow strange superstitions when it comes to travelling. Whether it means avoiding setting off on certain days or dodging specific dates, sitting in silence before leaving or putting garlic in your suitcase – there really are some odd superstitions around the world when it comes to travelling!

But the myths and legends don’t stop when you arrive at your destination – as many locations and monuments come with their own superstitions. If you want to return safely to Rome one day I hope you have thrown a coin into the Trevi Fountain and if you’re looking for the gift of the gab then head over to Ireland to kiss the Blarney Stone!
