This week we are answering a question from a viewer about souvenirs. They wanted to know if we did anything to commemorate each state we camp in or the places we travel. This is an interesting question to ask fellow full-time RVers since we don’t have a lot of space for things.
So what do we do? We mostly buy consumable. Food, wine, beer, candles anything that sparks our fancy and will remind of us where we purchased it. Yes, this means our souvenirs don’t last forever but we enjoy them while we do. For instance, we just had a cheese plate for dinner with items on it from all over the US picked up on our travels over the last 2 years. As we ate our dinner we also reminisced about where we got the honey, the jam, etc.
We will sometimes buy other things as well. We have a wall with some stickers and patches from places we’ve been. We certainly don’t need to get one from everywhere we go (and don’t have room to do so) but if something makes us happy we’ll add it to the wall. We’ve also bought a few other random t-shirts or things along the way for the same reasons.
We don’t do a map where we put a sticker or color in each state but we think they are cool! In fact, one of our subscribers has a print RVing journal on Amazon where you can store information about where you camp and color in each state as you go. Find it in our store: https://astreaminlife.com/amazonstore/
So what about you? Do you collect things when traveling or mark a map to commemorate each state? We’d love to know!
