Not a bad idea Bob.
I usually buy a coffee cup from places I go. Doesn't always have to be vacation either. Could just be a cool place or really neat restaurant.

i am officially going to steal that idea i like that! sometimes it takes a physical piece "anything" to bring you back to that place and time. songs do it for me all the time! very cool idea!
