Souvenirs 1

I have been racking my brain over what to give you in the way of a memento for your trip to Denmark.

I know how fond you are of hand-written letters, but my hand-written letter program on my PC has been giving me troubles as of late, forcing me to look for a pen and paper. I’ve actually forgotten how to write longhand, which means that all of my very personal and very private, cursive lettering has become capital letters, poorly formed and leaning to the right. That is not my political intention, but some might misunderstand my true intent, if I try to write a letter like that, which I won’t!

Another treasure might be my dog. You have expressed interest in him from time to time, but he might not be flat enough to fit in your suitcase, when your visit here is finally over. Here he is doing his best impression of “Flat”


I admit that he has appeared flatter before, but if you look sideways at him, and tell him to look the other way while you are trying to put him diagonal-wise into your suitcase, then between your imagination and mine, he just might fit?

Another fine idea is the aftertaste you’ll be experiencing, after our evening meal. I would suggest that you relish this effect as long as possible, with denial of any further meals on  the rest of your 10 day trip to seal the juices in your mouth. Flossing and  brushing must be avoided at all costs, which might cause distress to your traveling companion, and any/all  people met along the way. Just a suggestion, that’s all.

Taking all of your photos using a Flat Digital Camera is another way to save space.


In the above photo, you can see how effective this method has proven to be, by even the most experienced travelers. It is even better than pixel reduction!

Being ridden out of town on a rail by angry wives and the like, will be something to tell the folks back home! “What was the most memorable part of your visit? Your parents will be asking you, in French of course, never expecting your colorful answer! “Would you do it again?” They might be asking, as you show them the fading bruises on your shins, where you were motioned out of town by the local population, but you being the person that you are, will already be planning your next trip to Denmark, legal or not!

I guess, you will have to figure out this Souvenir Issue on your own.  Paper coffee cups with the airline logo are an inexpensive way to remember your trip, and easily flattened as well.


Items like the above publication are also fun things to bring home with you. Just like I have done on my travels.

Enjoy yourself, but don’t get overly excited on your trip. You might find that your excess happiness in visiting Denmark, won’t sit well, when they are weighing your bags at the airport.

Try frowning a bit. It’ll save you money in the end run……………
