The conversation turned to my teaspoon. It is a cover which isn't similiar with others. It sounds strange but even in the childhood I noticed the distinguishing features. It was expressed in the deeper little vessel and sharper brim which I feel better that with other teaspoons. The edge of teaspoon handle is border than the handle. What's more astonishing is that the handle is smooth without carving. It seems rare case to me. It appears that it is a silver teaspoon and it came to us not by chance.
Why I think that it may be called a souvenir? My great-great-grandfather was the soldier who went through whole war and his finish was in Berlin. After our victory he returned with some gifts for his family. Among them there is collection of silver teaspoons. One of them became mine from grandmothers. It is unusial souvenir from Germany with real history.
When I hold this teaspoon in my hands I imagine that it has been from the hand of German in the 20th century or may be even early to my hand in 21th century. I can say that this thing has seen a great deal in the long life.
In comparison with other souvenirs I see a great value in the teaspoon. It's the thing which is the smallest piece of war history in life of our family. The teaspoon has done duty for 18 years to me. This is the same age as me now. And all members of family know that it's only mine.
It's the main my souvenirs. As for the rest of souvenirs I'm glad to see another little Eiffel Tower,for example, but in the most cases it's not worthy as compared with these feelings from trip which you received there.

I was taken aback when I have listened the topic for discussion. I have never had special attitude to the souvenirs. Moreover it is never been something important to me generally because when I travel I try to enjoy by atmosphere of the place or by somebody's company or by impressions of people retur
