I have at least one drawer at home that’s filled with travel souvenirs. There are postcards, maps, museum floor plans, and pamphlets that I’ve brought back from trips. I always bring more of these things home than I realize, and when I had a quick look recently there were postcards from (among other places) Seattle, Paris, and Brussels stacked together. I started to review to see if there was anything that could be thrown away. Since this would be difficult I sorted things by country. At least that way if there were duplicates I could keep the one in better condition.
Here are some of the many souvenirs I decided to keep. They really aren’t just papers or postcards – they’re reminders of happy memories from trips. So I’ll just find more empty drawers and maybe next time I go on a trip I’ll make an effort not to collect so many souvenirs to bring back. Or at least try.
This was on the back of a map of Brussels. I wish I’d noticed this ad for chocolate tasting!
