Now here is a “double post” for you.

Souvenir, I knew was a French word for years. But I have always linked it to the crap you get when you go holiday to a tourist trap. Only when I lived in France some years ago I figured out that it means “memento, keepsake or token of remembrance”.

These massive pine cones you find in the forest in France always reminds me of France when I see them elsewhere. I spent many summers collecting these only to be told “we got plenty of these at home already”.
