Tacky fridge magnets from Florida, those harem pants from India (that you could never get away with wearing back home), and the obligatory “I [heart] NYC” t-shirt. We all often come back from holiday with souvenirs that seemed such a good idea at the time, but you’d actually never, in a million years, spend money on them at home!
There’s a really cool exhibition at the Smithsonian Castle in Washington D.C featuring a load of weird and wonderful, totally unique souvenirs that have been collected by travellers in the past – from a piece of the Berlin wall to snippets of hair. (http://bit.ly/13jsWYv)
So ignoring all those regrettable purchases you’ve probably made, what’s the best souvenir you’ve returned home with?
