Reasons Why People Collect Souvenirs When Travelling

Travel & Tourism
Even though souvenirs get dusted and dirty in shelves, some people consider them priceless memorabilia of their past journey. You can ask the famous people of their favourite souvenirs they kept in their lifetime and expect a variety of response from weird items to overly high priced collection and down to an ordinary collecting of sands. We all have our own way of reminiscing the past but the best feeling; the moment right there and there is when you hold that certain souvenir in your hand.

Collecting souvenirs is not a profession but merely a hobby, but one could never get over of grabbing the things that inspire the travel or journey in their life, whether it is a vacation, for work or even on a medical mission.} Looking back years ago, when you have still the juice to travel around the world, and you came across with a set of wine glass piece associated with native Indians and a young woman dancing in early nineteenth hundred in a Chord Bazaar in Mumbai, you would definitely order a set on your way home. As years gone by looking at that set you bought in the other part of the earth, that is when you can conclude that you have in you best vacation souvenir ever bought in your lifetime.

Typically, you can never tell whether you have already collected the best souvenir up until you are dying days. It is the natural process of life, so as we are still in our prime, collect souvenirs like woodcarvings, have fun identifying these items in the process, and most importantly, look for any soul-bewitching designs. Basically, it is kind of an expensive hobby to have, but as other say it that "money rolls" hence, the pain you get in acquiring the item will eventually go away as the fascination and fizzing over the souvenir lingers in your memory. However, do not allow too much of your time engaging with such idea or else you will end up such intense craving to collect for more leaving you so impulsive with your spending on items that are simply not of great use but just a sentimental value to your life. Some would even conclude to fall in love with their hobby more than their wife did. You need a lot of money in order to pursue this type of hobby. Then ask yourself this question. Is paying out many dollars for this intended exceptional piece worth it? The call to learn control and power in acquiring this sort of intricate preoccupation is necessary.

Some say that you can purchase any sort of souvenirs in the internet, place it as you order and deliver. However, there are people who can attest a huge difference in the quality and authenticity of the souvenir when bought from its original place. For instance, you can browse the internet and try to order the same specification of the set of wine glass that you bought in India about 10 years ago. Do you think that they have kept an original piece manufactured a decade ago? Of course, not, you will only a get a replica or simpler term a fake of such souvenir that you want to share or boast to your friends and love ones whenever they come and visit you place. Other people may not recognize the difference, so some say it is more cheaper and safe to purchase online but, how long will you lie to yourself that the keepsake that you place in your shelves are not original.

There are reasons why people tend to purchase online rather than buying it in stores or shops, first are, the airport does not allow you to travel with such souvenir. There are countries you have a set of list about the legal souvenirs to carry during the crossing of the borders. Other reason is that, the extra baggage of these souvenirs that you will pay in the airlines is much more expensive than the original piece of souvenir that you bought. However, the final decision is up to you. Souvenirs bought in the place where you have gone before entails pride and priceless memories, that is why most people will go on different lengths of sacrifices just to bring their best souvenirs home.
