What’s your favorite item to collect on your travels? Is it the same item from different places, or do you switch it up depending on what you find yourself drawn to?
More often than not, I gravitate toward paper goods. I love finding prints to frame and hang at home… but it doesn’t stop there. Postcards, maps, ticket stubs, business cards, stickers, handwritten notes, matchbooks – the list goes on.
Like reading the newspaper or visiting the grocery store, these items are a glimpse into the local culture. I find the endless styles and subjects fascinating. Plus, gathering pieces of the smaller aspects of a trip help me to remember it more fully later on.
