My favorite souvenir from a trip somewhere is something simple, like a coin, or a pebble. Something ordinary that people come across every day but don’t necessarily give a lot of thought to.
Several of these were given to me by my grandfather, who was a merchant marine going to northern Europe before & during World War Two. The French & Soviet coins from the 1930s were from him, as were the French & German ones from the 1950s, as well as the Irish one from 1978.
May got the Mexican and Dubai coins on work trips that I wasn’t able to go on.
I have no idea where the Cuban coins came from. I seem to remember Kaite brought back the coins from Costa Rica.
The MBTA & video arcade ones probably shouldn’t count :-). We recently had a roll of tokens for the New Hampshire turnpike that would have been good here too, but they abandoned their token system and I think we must have thrown the tokens away. Oh well.
Asia is under-represented here, must rectify that.
