Long back someone gifted me an exquisite keychain. I have till now treasured it. Then one more came my way. I treasured it as well.
When I started travelling, I saw keychains at every tourist place. These are the smallest mementos that one can take back home for oneself or gift without much botheration.
So, I began buying keychains for myself and others too. Also being a backpacker I neither have money nor space to carry bigger fancier gifts for people back home.
Gradually it became a habit and my collection started growing.
What do I do with so many of them?
Well, I have a 3′ X 3′ soft board for displaying these key chains collected over a period of time.
Antique looking pieces. I have some gold plated as well.
The memories of all those places come flooding everytime I look at them. I have many more which are vying for a place on this board.
But this doesn’t mean I buy these keychains from each & every country I visit. For example, my latest country was the Philippines and I do not have a single keychain from there.
Some close ups !
Do you want to see my whole collection ? 😀
Are you also in the habit of collecting memorabilia when you travel? What do you collect generally?
