Souvenir Sunday – in Vienna

It’s Souvenir Sunday, the day StuckatTheAirport.com usually looks at fun, inexpensive, locally-themed items you can buy at airports.

But..because I’ve spent the week on a river – the Danube River – on board a Viking River Cruise, this week’s souvenirs come from one of our stops.

In Vienna, the chef for the cruise toured a group of about 15 passengers through a downtown market where stalls were filled with everything from fish and wine and olives to every spice you can imagine

We got to see everything, of course, but also had an opportunity to do some tastings.

Then it was time to shop. Pretty much every stall had small and large packets of nuts, spices and dried fruit for sale. But I only found one shop that this wide and very colorful assortment of sardines – all priced at below $8.

Do you look for fun, unusual and locally-themed souvenir in your travels? If you see something great – especially at an airport – please snap a photo and send it along.

If se feature your souvenir on StuckatTheAirport.com, we’ll send you a travel-themed souvenir.

    I’d never have thought to look for sardines!! What a great tip as I’ve just adapted my tastes to smoked ones. Going on the Bordeaux Vining River Cruise in November and am very excited. Inspiring market trips are a must do!! Thanks for sharing.
