Here are two wooden bookmarks that my aunt acquired in Canada. They’re from Mont-Tremblant:
Mont-Tremblant is a city in the Laurentian mountains of Quebec, Canada. Mont-Tremblant is most famous for ski resorts such as the Mont-Tremblant Ski Resort, which is at the foot of a mountain called Mont Tremblant (derived from local Algonquins who referred to it as the “trembling mountain”).

I received these from Cathie today. She tells me this first bookmark was made for the Rugby World Cup :
And the second one shows the Milford Sound, a fjord in the south west of New Zealand’s South Island, judged as the world’s top travel destination and acclaimed as New Zealand’s most famous tourist destination :
It looks better with light behind it :
Thank you ! :-)

A bookmark from Burano, Italy. Thanks to my aunt for this one!.
Burano is an island in the Venetian Lagoon, northern Italy. It is known for its small, brightly-painted houses, popular with artists. The colours of the houses follow a specific system originating from the golden age of its development; if someone wishes to paint their home, one must send a request to the government, who will respond by making notice of the certain colours permitted for that lot.
