A few years ago I decided to collect magnets on trips and told my friends and family if they were planning to get souvenirs, all I wanted was a magnet (or fabulous local jewelry). Since then I’ve acquired and been gifted some neat magnets from around the world.

Why magnets? Because I consider the kitchen and dining table a gathering space, where people come to make activity and talk. And what better conversation starter than a funky bicycle magnet from Copenhagen (generous friends, world travel) or the buxom blonde from Oktoberfest (you’ll never believe how we met these funny Italians) or a wine bottle from Bordeaux (Adam and I are saving this little bottle, look, until July 2017)?

Also: as we try to keep a light load for ease of travel and movement, I can only think that packing magnets is way easier than packing a million t-shirts or other heavy, space-taking things.
