Did you know? When kept as a talisman, a horseshoe is said to bring good luck. Locals hang it with the ends pointing upwards, as it is said to act as a storage container for any good luck that happens to be floating by, whereas to hang it with the ends pointing down brings bad luck as all the good luck might fall out. So feel the nomadic spirit, find your horse shoe and eventually become a nomad!
