The collections of souvenirs from travels can quickly become quite large and collect a lot of dust.
It can seem like a good idea in the shop, but when I get home, I do not really know what to do with them, and it just sits on a shelf collecting dust. For several years I haven’t bought traditional souvenirs, but instead but clothes, bags and whatever my eye caught, but that does not last “forever”. A cheap and very small souvenir, thats easily placeable is a magnet for your refrigerator. I buy one from all of my trips and on the back, I write the year of the trip.
So now i have a “piece of art” in the kitchen, and I can remember all my trips, whenever I go in the refrigerator.
