Not something I would even normally consider a souvenir but last winter, in the depths of Melbourne‘s lockdown, I was wearing my down jacket on my daily one hour walk. When I put my hands in my pockets I felt something. It was a single use metro ticket from my trip to Rome— Christmas 2019. It bought a wistful smile to my face and it’s still in the pocket so I can “hold onto“ that memoryI seem to collect transport cards. Just checked my collection and I’ve got Amsterdam, London, Singapore, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Montreal, Seattle, Beijing, San Francisco, Vancouver, Shanghai, New York, Washington. Also local cards for Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide.

I know you can often return the card for a refund, but I like to keep them as a momento and an incentive to return.
