Rome Snow Globe

Growing up my parents told my brother and I all sorts of stories that they had from their travels around the world. They were both in the military so they were able to travel to many different places. Both of them instilled the importance of travel into my brother and I, and that there were many things to experience in this world outside of Norfolk. They both gave me the desire to travel the world when I'm older, but that's not the only thing. This snow globe is one of two that they collected on their travels which they gifted to me. I now have a small snow globe collection of my own that was inspired by them. This collection allows me to carry mementos of the places I visit with me that aren't just photographs. This one snow globe inspired two things that I will carry with me throughout my life, a physical collection and a passion for travel. A small object was able to illicit so much change in my life.
