Souvenir Sunday at Sydney Airport

It’s Souvenir Sunday – the day we take a look at some of the fun, inexpensive and locally-themed souvenirs you can pick up when you’re stuck at the airport.

Because who really needs a(nother) Gucci bag, a 5 pound bag of chocolate or a heavy glass bottle of duty-free scotch that will likely fall and break before you get it through customs and home to your house?

I found this week’s treats at Sydney Airport, where I spent several hours before boarding a Qantas Airways A380 for its inaugural flight from Sydney to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. The flight marked the first time the world’s largest airplane flew on the world’s longest route.
