Souvenir Sunday at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport

This week’s Souvenir Sunday items come to use (again!) from world traveler Jon Douglas, who sent this photo of lovely-looking huckleberry-themed products from Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport, the gateway to Yellowstone National Park.

“It’s a neat-looking airport, with a wood-and-stone interior that makes you think you’re in a mountain lodge,” he said.

Jon also sent this photo of a dinosaur fossil (could it be real?) watching over the baggage claim carousel.

If you spot a great souvenir when you’re stuck at the airport, please snap a photo and send it along. If your souvenir is featured on, I’ll send you a travel-themed souvenir.

Fossils at Liverpool John Lennon Airport

It’s the 50th anniversary of the Beatles being “The Beatles” so I’m planning a visit to the Liverpool John Lennon Airport, where the slogan is “above us only sky.”

Poking around the airport’s website this weekend, I discovered that it’s really easy to get to JLA from Amsterdam and that the Liverpool airport has a John Lennon statue, a yellow submarine, and lots of Lennon, Beatles, and other art that I hope to be able to see – and report back on – in person.

In the meantime, I was delighted to find a downloadable Fossil Mystery Tour brochure on the John Lennon Airport website.  Many of the limestone slabs used to build the terminal contain fossils and, with the brochure in hand, you’ll be able to walk around the terminal and see Ammonites, Belemnites and Trace Fossils.
