So as I’m off work sick today this has given me a good opportunity right relax, sleep and when I feel up to it, write a blog post!
I’m in a lot of travel groups across social media and had the idea to try a snack box swap with a girl I met in one of these groups who was from Denmark. It worked so well and when I shared the idea in the travel groups I was in, it took off! It led me to creating a group specifically designed for this purpose which you can find below.
I am so pleased with how to group has grown but the idea wouldn’t be complete without sharing this on my blog!
I sent snacks from England and received a box full of yummy Danish snacks which ranged from cinnamon rolls to chocolate caramel turtles! I haven’t been able to try them all yet but I’m looking forward to when I do!
A couple of tips if you’re looking at doing a similar idea:
- Join the group, there’s a whole community of people wanting to swap!
- Set a budget so it’s equal and fair
- Try to send the same day or week as the person you swap with
- Check customs regulations, there may be certain foods that you cannot include, if this is the case it may even be worth swapping other items instead.
- Check for allergies!
I hope this helps, it really was a unique and really fun experience and I look forward to doing more swaps in the future!
