—Today when a friend or family member takes a trip they usually bring back T-shirts. YAY for T-shirts especially ones with idiotic sayings like My friend went to Guam and all I got was this lousy T-shirt. How true.
—Years ago however one of the joys of traveling was bringing home real souvenirs. Most were made locally or unique to that location. Not like today where most if not all are cheap imports.
I once thought about going to China and doing all my souvenir shopping there. It would be cheaper and quicker. But that’s another story.
—Anyway… This is my collection of souvenirs. Most of them are from the golden age of road trips and family vacations. Yes even years ago some were made in Japland but most shown here are made in the city/state they were representing. There is nothing better than a cheesy souvenir. So when you are out travlin’ bring me home something but no T-shirts please.
Check back as I will be posting more from my collection.
