Myanmar (Burma), Socks, Travel

Airline socks enjoying a river and lake cruise – Myanmar

Airline socks are one size fits no one.

I think most of us have fallen into the trap of taking these home after the flight, only to find on subsequent wearing they don’t stay on your feet for more than a few minutes without slithering down under your foot. Not to mention they are sweaty. Seriously, what are they made of? Recycled Tupperware?!

But being a thrifty traveler, I can’t leave them behind after my flight. So what to do with them?

I keep them until I am on a trip where there are numerous places that require you to remove your shoes and often socks as well – temples, pagodas, stupa complexes… Aha these socks are perfect!

In these places, regardless of how clean the floor is, it will still likely be dirty. So on these days, I wear my airline socks. At the end of the day, I take them off and neatly leave on top of the rubbish bin in my room. Hopefully they will find their way to someone who needs them more than me.
