Friday 5 (souvenirs)

Well, I haven't done this in awhile and this set looked like fun, so here goes.

1. When you travel, what kinds of souvenirs do you like to bring home for yourself?

Something I can either use for a long while, or something I can wear. Occasionally I don't mind something that I can look at either.

2. Is there a certain kind of souvenir you always bring back for a particular someone?

Yes, my dad. Always something with the name of wherever I went. lol. He loves that. And postcards are always great for the whole family.

3. Of the souvenirs you’ve collected from your travels, what are some that have special meaning for you? A laquered plaque from South America, called "How To Get Even With People" It starts out with things like, "Floor them with your kindness, literally sweep them off their feet with your love, etc." A really cute thing. Hangs in my bedroom near my bookshelf.

4. What’s the silliest souvenir you’ve brought back for yourself, or what’s the silliest souvenir someone has brought back for you?

Pinetart from NYC. The silly thing is pretty much everyone in the family eats by the time the package 'reached' me, it was pretty much gone, but the thought counted. I love pinetart, which is actually a pineapple-jelly-filled pastry in a triangle shape. Yum!

5.If you were going to send someone a souvenir from places you visited today, what might it be?

Postcards. I love seeing snapshots of places where others have been, so I know there are folks who like the same too. And a miniature of something major, like, I would love to travel to Paris and I really would love to buy a little miniature of the Eiffel Towel. ^_^

And that's my Friday 5.

Cheers! I hope you all have a great weekend!
