Hey Travel Lover😉
Where did you travel to in your mind this week? If I were to ask you for the memento, would you have thought of one?
When I initially started travelling, I had some funny notions, I didn’t believe in visiting the souvenir shop in town or at the airport to buy a fridge magnet, snow globe or a reminder I visited the country. I rationalized it thus, "I visited this place so my memories would suffice", now I know better.
I’ve come to realize that memories alone don’t suffice, we need reminders that we visited a new place, ate a fabulous meal, rode on a camel, dragged a red suitcase around in Paris and didn’t attempt the “Leap of Faith” water slide in Dubai😂😃
Now, I am on a memento gathering mission, when I visit a country, I ensure a memento comes home with me. When I visit a country I previously visited without getting a memento I get a fridge magnet. I love snow globes too but their fragile nature makes it difficult for me to transport.
Take as much pictures as you can, get a fridge magnet or a snow globe or something to remind you, you visited an amazing country and you loved it.
So Travel Lover, Grab a Memento!!!
