Collectively, the Air Canada enRoute team has amassed a trove of treasures from our travels – some iconic (tiles from Lisbon), others delicious (dulce de leche from Buenos Aires) and all reflective of the places we've been. We’re sharing them here – please share yours, too!
“Everywhere I went in Bucharest, from street corners to flea markets, I spotted intricately decorated eggs, a centuries–old Romanian tradition that involves carefully hand–painting motifs onto eggshells with coloured wax. I knew I couldn’t leave the city without one, but my planned shopping day – and my last day there – turned out to be a Romanian holiday, so everything was closed.
With time running out, I stumbled upon My Romanian Store: jackpot! There, among the charming shop’s beautiful selection of local arts and crafts, from woven rugs to pottery, I spotted the eggs, piled high in handmade baskets. The hardest part was choosing just one, so I bought three. Packaged in small boxes, they survived the journey back to Montreal and are ready for my Easter table.”
