Oct 5th 2012 5:25PM A great post, Jessica! I am so addicted to travel souvenirs, that I had to buy a whole new shelving unit to house them all. To some people they are just clutter, to me, they are fantastic reminders of the amazing experiences I've had abroad.
It did come a time when I had just too many and I had to ask myself if I really needed to buy that much. But how to decide?
I explored this very topic in my article "15 key questions for choosing memorable travel souvenirs" http://www.culturaltravelguide.com/questions-memorable-travel-souvenirs
I find that I am getting more selective as time goes on and the more I travel. I'd rather spend a bit more in one or two really good things that represent my trip and what I was feeling and thinking at that moment.
A few things in this article I hadn't considered, like making my own souvenirs! Definitely interesting!
