"Keep some souvenirs of your past, or how will you ever prove it wasn't all a dream?" - Ashleigh Brilliant

As I am reminded every time I wait in line to pay for my bottled water at the airport concessions stand, they don't make souvenirs like they used to. The modern day traveler is offered the dubious delights of an identikit selection of quirky magnet, bag of themed candy, or slogan-ridden t-shirt...her Victorian ancestor, however, was able to maintain her memories with an enameled gold locket.

We travel faster...not necessarily better...
