The nervous traveler is always looking for new ways to calm their nerves. While some may say that traveling with crystals is a bunch of hooey, many people believe in their healing power and after you’ve invested a ton of money in a vacation, do you really want to leave anything to chance? Travel can certainly be stressful these days and just about everyone is looking for calming influences to alleviate these negative feelings.
