Finding treasures is a lovely past time and I guess very popular. I've made a collage of things I like from here and there, souvenirs in the proper sense. The best ones can't be bought you just find them and marvel and wonder at their beauty and the stories that they tell. These are the kinds of treasures I shall be seeking out on our road trip this summer. I have it in mind today because my new passport arrived in the post.
