Photo of the Day (07.26.10)

Having a mascot for your trip or an item that always travels with you is a neat way to add a personal twist to your adventure. We’ve touched on this before with the hula girl in Calgary photo. I’ve even done it myself with a little friend who followed me around Tasmania. That’s why I was thrilled to see this image by Flickr user skinnymalinky1 in the Gadling Flickr pool.

What was Squiggly doing in Salzburg, Austria? Does he have his own passport? Did he insist on sleeping in the top bunk on the overnight train? [Sigh] We may never know. But he looks happy and that’s all that really matters.

Do you have a travel mascot who joins you wherever you go? Or maybe you just have some amazing pictures from your last trip? Submit your images to Gadling’s Flickr group right now and we might use it for a future Photo of the Day.
