Souvenirs aren’t really my thing. They used to be, but I simply have too much junk nowadays. Can’t imagine adding to it.
When I do buy, I’m careful to only buy items that I’m absolutely, positively sure I’ll use when the trip is over.
Except . . . there is this one item I’ll never use when I return home, and it is Number 1 on my Souvenir List.
I hope to purchase the wooden walking stick I’ll be using on my trek to see the gorillas.
Nothing fancy. Just an ordinary stick.
I imagine I’ll have to finagle a way to get it on the plane home. Once there, I’ll hang it on my wall and let the memories flash before me whenever I look upon it.
