Found this list by browsing the journal of an LJ friend's LJ friend:
20 Awesomely Untranslatable Words from Around the World

To this list I would add the Tagalog word "pasalubong," which is a gift (or maybe it's a collective plural) one brings back from traveling to give to the folks at home. It differs from a souvenir in that a souvenir is for oneself to keep.
