People Adventures are forever.
My first trip abroad was to the USA when I was 16. I went on my own, enjoyed reading books, watched movies and spent time doing what I love the most. My family and I have travelled all over India together but my trip abroad, especially on my own gave me such a high. I vividly remember carrying a black pouch, which had a waist strap. My passport, few currency notes, a pen and a notepad were safe inside that “uber cool” pouch. What was I thinking?
So, the season of pouches (finally) came to an end and entered passport holders. Compact, sleek and elegant – win-win-win!
I recently received a passport holder from Urby, a brand that has an extensive range of travel and lifestyle essentials. The motto of Urby is to eliminate the middlemen and get high-quality products directly to consumers, which in turn reduces the price a customer has to pay. They have a wide range of products, which include passport holders, travel wallets, pouches and lifestyle essentials watch cases, men’s wallets, jewellery cases and more. Prices start from 895 INR onwards.
Packaging: The passport holder was encased in a canvas drawstring pouch. The pouch was packed neatly in a sturdy cardboard box. There was a feeling of luxury when I opened the package. Quality definitely gives you a feeling of luxury irrespective of the price. Agree?
Here’s what I really like about the brand. They offer to customise select products with your name for 150 INR. You can also choose the colour of the text and where you want it placed. I love it when brands take the extra step to offer options that help add a personal touch.

Until then, here’s how I’ll put the passport holder to good use. If you’re a stationery junkie, you’ll know what I mean.
