Come on, Lyndie, we speak about the same things by different words.
I didn't say that it's better if you don't have money than if you have it, I said that having money is not guarantee for happines.
You've just said that you find plaesure in helping other people instead of spending money to unnecessary things – this is just what I'm talking about.
Speaking of souvenirs, I said that I wouldn't change dry rosebud, received as sign of gratitude, for, as for exemplae, possibility to buy a golden ring or leather jacket. You can call me sentimental fool, but this is my valuable sistem.

Yes - I have something like this also. I know exactly what you mean - and yes we are saying the same things.

Elisa, I understand what you are saying - however, I will also say this.

If you have cancer, then money can't change this. BUT, if you have cancer and have money, you can be sure in your mind that you have the best doctors and the time you spend in hospital can be more pleasant, than if you have no money and are in some horrible overcrowded dirty 'state' hospital where you can have cancer AND be more miserable because of your surroundings

The first years I brought almost everything with blue eyes on it, some Turkish tea glasses, apple tea, the typical stuff. But my family and friends´ houses started to look like turkish souvenir shops after a few years.

Lately I started to bring stuff that I know people want or like. I usually bring food for my mom (olives, cheeses, dried herbs from the market) since she loves to cook. I also brought some beautiful handmade glass-work for some people. They had tulips on them so at least it was a bit Turkish For a group of girls from work I brought fresh baklava (only possible since I bought it on my way to the airport, and went straight to work after the airport ) because the girls loveeee sweets.

I guess it´s always nice to buy a souvenir that´s specific picked for the person you´re giving it to. My grandparents still use their "Western sized" teaglasses (with blue eyes on them) every day!

 

Oh, and souvenir for myself, snowglobes! I collect them, so if I see a nice one I´ll treat myself
