Years ago my best friend gave me a stuffed bunny for Christmas. That was origin of many things-including my blog name. It also started one of my favorite vacation traditions: my photo buddy!
My little stuffed bunny has traveled the world with me. Stuck in a back pack or a beach bag, she’s pretty much gone everywhere I have since she arrived. (What can I say? She’s a well traveled bunny!)
The really fun part of all of this? Getting her picture somewhere fun in every location. OK, yes, you might get a strange look or two taking a photo of a stuffed animal in the middle of Times Square. But a strange look or two are totally worth it just for the fun and the giggles later.
If you want to take a photo buddy on your next vacation don’t think it has to be a stuffed animal. It could be anything. An action figure, a doll…even a rock. It just has to be something that you can safely take along on your travels. (Think small, light weight and able to clear customs…)
Now it’s really time for the fun. Start thinking of the silly places you can take pictures with your photo buddy. Make it a family challenge. Maybe each family member has their own photo buddy. The only limit is your imagination!
Thanks to Amy from As the bunny hops for telling us her wonderful story about a Travel Buddy; and stay tuned we also have a travel buddy on our trip through Germany; be sure to check out where he ends up every day.
