It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted a look back into the past on Michael W Travels with a Flashback Friday.
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

One of my favorite souvenirs to buy while traveling is hats. I wrote about this in my post about my purchase of a Tarboosh in Egypt. (You can read the post here)
On my trip to Vienna, my must buy souvenir was a Traditional 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.
