Everytime I travel, I also go shopping especially for souvenirs and memorabilias. In places towns, cities or countries that I visit, I always bring home with me some postcards, fridge magnet, shot glasses and many items from that certain place.
In Germany, I already collected a lot of stuffs. When we went to Weiden five years ago, I bought some Seltmann Tableware. I also have some silverware from Solingen. My collections of tea sets, porcelain plates and crystal glasses are also enormous. We already have a house like a museum because of all the stuffs that I bought everytime I travel.

When I visited Paris, France twice, I bought some souvenir shirts and hoodies, miniature of Eiffel Tower and travel books. Shopping in Paris can be very exciting because it is the home of famous designer brands like Guerlain, Lancôme, L'Oréal, Clarins, Chanel, Christian Dior, Yves Saint-Laurent, etcetera. You can simply shop for anything in Paris.

I remember when I visit Switzerland last 2010, I request a catalogue about Zurich. What sights to see, shopping information in the city, transportation, dining and other important travel tips and guides are written in that catalogue.
I just feel good when I always bring home with me some souvenirs from my travels. I guess when I retire, I can already build a travel museum.
