Things you bring back from holiday


#1

Do you like a souvenir?
Or just stuff you can’t get a home?
Got to get to those outlets?

I came very close to bringing home a lamp in the shape of a flamingo. I had to not do this because I was already bringing home 4 x pretty glass tupperwares and 2 x mugs plus a whole host of other shit.

Brought back anything ridiculous?


#2

booze and badfeels


#3

Leather camel
Fisherman’s pants
Fake shit
Fags
Sweets called nob, cock or fanny

Always try and bring something back as a nice reminder. Think I went through a few of them on my through the keyhole video. My new favourite is a wee sheep figurine I bought in the West Bank made by a Bedouin tribe.

Genuinely have a wooden flamingo I bought back from Cuba that we named Jorge.


#5

sort of collect crap tourist mugs. only started a wee while ago though so don’t have that many (and won’t bother getting one if i hate the place)


#6

Snow globes for work. We have 138 at the moment.


#7

Fridge magnets

On my first trip to Amsterdam, for some reason i suddenly panicked that i hadnt bought my mum a souvenir. Was battered of course. Went to a shit tourist shop and bought some kind of hideous ceramic bread board with a windmill on it. When i took it over to hers the next day i realised it was the most obvious confirmation possible that id smoked a lot of weed, so threw it in a hedge.

Snow globes are dangerous!


#10

#11

JOKES ON U


#12

But seriously, why?


#13

Big fan of tacky fridge magnets. And postcards stuck to the fridge with said tacky fridge magnets.

I usually try to visit flea markets and vintage shops too cos I :heart: clothes. I think my favourite find was a velvet pencil skirt from the flea market in Reykjavik. It cost 3000 krona (way more than I’d usually spend) but I loved it so much I didn’t care, and it has pockets!


#14

They’re glass and full of liquid! High risk of smashage.


#15

Oh, also, drunk supermarket trip on the last night for all the exciting, foreign sweeties and paprika crisps!


#16

I am a massive fan of fridge magnets that are also little clips.


#17

This little lot are fine


#18

My favourite thing was a keyring from the Vatican that had the recently deceased John Paul II and the new Benedict XVI on either side and you could spin it round with a deft flick. For the rest of the year I replaced heads or tails with Polish goalkeeper/Hitler Youth.


#19

I went to Amsterdam in January. I brought back a small round cheese. The security at the airport seemed convinced I must have bought a load of drugs, which was kind of a compliment really.

I always buy my mum the naffest fridge magnet I can find and she does the same. Except she actually got me a nice fridge magnet with horses on it from Greece
