choosing souvenirs

Uganda Market

Because I travel a lot, I encounter lots of options for souvenir buying. I like to think I’ve perfected the art of how to buy souvenirs, but I’m sure that’s not true as there’s ALWAYS things to be learned. However, if you find yourself going on a trip and want to read my tips on choosing items that you are really going to want to display in your home, then click over to Petit Elefant!


on speaking english


Living in a land where English is one of the national languages is a bonus. It’s also helped me realize just how diverse the English language is. Yes, we might both be speaking English words, but it’s quite possible those words mean two different things depending on what country you’re from. Click over to Petit Elefant to see what I mean and share your own encounters with the English language.
