Love ’em. Big ones, small ones, tacky ones, fancy ones, one size fits all, edible ones. You name it…I love it! SOUVENIRS! If I could just find that one person in life (ahem…Susan) who I could go on vacation with and visit nothing but souvenir shops…life would be simply perfect! Well, I did manage to convince my parents and Daniel (who can be a hard sell) that we needed to hit up a couple of souvenir shops. Afterall, I go to every city with a few things in mind. Would you like some examples? OK!
London = teapot, photo of William and Kate, photo with red phone booth (see below)…
Germany = beer stein, Hoffbrau Haus t-shirt
Ireland = lucky horseshoe necklace, something wool
Italy = I will eat my souvenir once I go!
And, finally, Amsterdam = wooden shoes and tulips (check and check!) Thank you Amsterdam for having a plethora of delightful shops to feed my guilty pleasure!
To those of you who adore souvenirs I say, “Bon Ap!”
