Seen on Netflix


I bought a temple bell whilst I was in Thailand .  We were visiting a Buddist temple in Chang Mai and this day was a public holiday so was super busy.  There were all kinds of things for sale around the temple and these bells were for people to chime as the walked around the Budda.

It has been sitting on the shelf for the want of something to hang it on and I finally found a bracket at Paddington Hardware. (They have things that no other hardware store have and the men, who are mostly retired,  know every piece of stock.)

Now it is my front door bell.

Everytime it rings I will remember that visit

How lovely! Sound is one of the most evocative of memory-triggers, isn't it!

These are the best kind of souvenirs - things that are used and remind us of the trip.
