I like to buy small souvenirs when I am traveling. Those things do not have to fancy or expensive, just something special. The cruel thing in life is, though, that the nicest things are more often expensive. Anyway, it turned out to be a tricky task to find a souvenir that would not be a huge cliché in Venice. But I managed to find one, a handcrafted notebook by Paolo Olbi. The tiny shop was located at Campo Santa Maria Nova. I love the pattern on the cover.
