#7 - 10 amazing countries, 10 keepsakesFriday, November 08, 2013
One of the things that really gets me excited is exploring new countries and cultures. I've done my fair bit of back packing over the years, roughing it in some pretty interesting conditions, and also splashed out at the other end of the scale too.
In general I try not to buy too much stuff when I travel. I firmly believe you should be able to carry everything you need on your back, and am bewildered sometimes at airports when I see people dragging huge suitcases along. Do you really need all that stuff?
If I do acquire a keepsake - I always try to get something that I know I'll have use for in the future... and most of the time I manage to stick to this rule.
Here are some of my more recent finds...
And here is a photo from each country... ahhhh the memories.
