• Unconventional trinkets to collect during travels

    2014-03-05

    Forget about ticket stubs and city maps - during your next grand international adventure, opt for more creative trinkets to collect abroad. While paper items are ideal for scrapbooking or quick storage, some travelers have taken souvenir collecting to the next level by pooling less-than-conventional items during their trips.

    Candy wrappers
    Travelers with a sweet tooth will no doubt seek sugary substances during their expeditions. Instead of lugging back heavy items or those that are difficult to pack, tourists should consider bringing wrappers from food items that are native to the region. These items are easy to transport, provide an accurate snapshot with regards to culture and language of the region, and are relatively cheap to come across. Since they are small and lightweight, they are also perfect for placing in an album or travel remembrance box.

    Photographed memories
    Instead of paying money to collect items reminiscent of a particular location, tourists can instead opt for taking a similar picture in each location. For example, Russian photographer Murad Osmann travels the world with his girlfriend, and takes the same picture in each spot. With his hand extended and holding her left hand, she faces the location with one arm in front of her. Picture viewers see neither person's face, but are instead treated to the beautiful images of well-known locations in the background.
