Travel Theme: Tradition

Tradition is an integral part of any culture. The word comes from the Latin traditio, and means to transmit or hand over for safekeeping. It is something handed down from generation to generation, and can be a ritual, a holiday, socially meaningful clothes, even an object. Traditions can be widespread throughout a country or specific to just one family, and I thought it might make a fascinating travel theme.

What is your interpretation of tradition? If you’d like to join in, create your own post, title it “Travel theme: tradition” and put a link to this page in your blog post to make it easy for others to find your post. Don’t forget to check back in next Friday for a new travel theme.

What does tradition mean to you?

This is what Ailsa at wheresmybackpack says.

Next is my tradition story!

In South Africa we have a traditional “BRAAIVLEIS

And also traditional “POTJIE-KOS”

Camping gives the opportunity to do both

braaivleis and potjie

Camping with a tent

Umbrella table and chairs

At the bottom to the right  you can see a  “potjie”

All the meat and vegetables for the “potjie”

You are supposed to make a wood fire!

They are ready and waiting for the end result.

One potjie

Second “potjie”

It smells  and tastes delicious.

(Sorry, this wasn’t in South Africa. This was in New Zealand and some traditional stuff wasn’t available)
