In my opinion, travel and shopping have a lot in common. Both can be adventures where you never know what you’ll find. They both offer a form of distraction, escape and relaxation. When you combine travel with shopping, well…what fun!! So many people make buying momentos a necessary part of their travel experience. Memories go hand in hand with travel. Taking home a souvenir is such a nice way to bring a piece of your travel back. It not only is a constant reminder of your travels, but it can also be a great conversation piece. I have friends who love to visit beach destinations and like to return with seashells that they display in their home. My aunt has an impressive collection of glass mugs from different countries she visited. How about you? Do you collect knick knacks? Tee shirts? Share your travel momentos.
