Sydney Airport

Souvenir Sunday: Sydney Airport

Beyond memories, it’s a good idea to bring home souvenirs to remind us of our adventures out in the world.

I found this addition to my growing collection of chocolate ‘poo’ at Syndey Airport, on my way home from a conference.

Just another example of the fun, inexpensive, locally-themed gifts you can find when you’re stuck at the airport.

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.

Souvenir Sunday: vegemite from Sydney Airport

It’s Souvenir Sunday – a day to take a look at the fun, inexpensive and locally-themed items you can find when you’re stuck at the airport.

This week’s pick comes to us from world-traveler Jon Douglas, who found a bin of vegemite for sale at Australia’s Sydney Airport.

What’s vegemite?

According to the Urban Dictionary: It’s a “delicious Australian spread, made from used brewer’s yeast. Non-Australians tend to give descriptions of it similar to ‘tastes like a mixture of salt and battery acid’.”

On the road a lot? If you find yourself stuck at the airport, take some time to check ou the shops. If you find a great souvenir that’s fun, inexpensive and ‘of’ the city or region, please snap a photo and send it along.

If your souvenir is featured on StuckatTheAirport.com, I’ll send you a special travel-related souvenir.
