Today I’ll be posting the first Flashback Friday of 2014. The topic has to do with one of my favorite things to buy while traveling- local & traditional hats. Besides buying a little something for Lucas on our trips, I try to avoid buying souvenirs. The only thing that I will still seek out are hats.
Here is the post:
- Shop For A Hat, Get in the Local Paper- Vienna, Austria

|Authentic Alpine Hat|
After visiting a store which sold traditional clothing and hats near Hofburg Palace, I decided that a nice, authentic hat was out of my price range. I’d have to start looking in regular souvenir shops and hope to find a good imitation.
I decided to check out a couple of touristy stores later that day and was pleased to find some good looking hats in the $15-$20 range. I found a hat that I was interested in. I was trying it on and looking in the mirror when a man came in and motioned like he was taking a picture with his camera and said “Click Click” to me. I shrugged and said sure, a bit confused why he wanted a picture of me trying on the hat.

I don’t remember exactly what I said for the little interview, but I remember saying something like- Vienna is cool!
Well that wraps up the first Flashback Friday of 2014. Have you ever unexpectedly made it into the newspaper while traveling? If so how and where did it happen?
Have a great weekend!
