    What I would buy as a souvenir from a trip abroad?



    Why do people go on trips?
    It depends on people but I think, the people who go on trips have a common reason. It is to escape from daily life. Usually people's life is routine. Get up, go to the office, work, and go to bed. That's why people want to do what isn't routine. I can say going on a trip is not routine. When you visit a place that you have never been to, you can get something new out of it.

    Going on a trip is special for almost all people, so many people bring cameras and take photographs to refresh their memories. Some people also buy something as a souvenir from a trip. In my case, I would buy a kind of model. For example, if I went to Paris, I'd buy a model of the Eiffel Tower; on the other hand, it's also good to buy some kind of doll which is traditional.

    Anyway, I'd buy something that reminds me of the trip.


    教師より
    In terms of your conclusion – while it is very good, it would be great if you had a look at my version and thought about some possible ways in which you can write future conclusions.

    “No matter how enjoyable a trip was, it is a fact that some memories do fade. In order to minimize this, people choose to buy souvenirs that can refresh their memories of their experiences. The items can have special meanings to the owner, whether they are sentimental, informative or just a source of pride.

    Souvenirs acting as a reference to the owner are especially useful as they can convey multiple things: style of manufacture (which might indicate the location of the artisan who created the item), historical information, or the circumstances in which the owner bought the souvenir.

    Whatever the purpose however, it is clear that souvenirs are valuable as recorders of culture. For this reason, it is less important for me what kind of souvenir to buy and more important to actually buy something so that I may retain a connection with the place that I have visited.”
