Travel theme: Secret Places

15 Jun

This week on Whereโ€™s my backpack? the theme for the weekly challenge is Secret Places

It’s not exactly a hidden place, more like hidden street art.
Paris is full of street art, on walls and doors, at the metro stops, on traffic signs, basically – on every surface of the city you can imagine, you just need to look.
It come in all forms, graffiti, posters, stickers, mosaics, sketches, engravings and what not.

When I was walking one day to meet a friend, I happened to meet this guy here, and honest to god, the thing that came out of my mouth was “found Waldo!”
Since then I met him in 7 other random places in the city, always where you least expect him. The photo is from the first time I found him, afterwards it became sort of a quest to find him with that same friend, every time we do it’s a little triumph for us.

    What fun! My daughter brought a little beanie pink flamingo on our trip to Australia. I had forgotten all about it until reading your post. It is like having your own inside secret that you can carry with you wherever you go.

      I agree, what happened to the doll?

      • Naomi Baltuck June 24, 2012 at 02:47 #

        It’s still around, but it just went on that one trip with us.

    I wonder if Waldo ever visits Oregon??? I’ll have to start looking in all the corners and crevices of the buildings around me! LOL – great take on this travel theme.

    • Emma June 30, 2012 at 18:14 #

      let me know what you come up with… ๐Ÿ™‚

      • LubbyGirl June 30, 2012 at 21:05 #

        Okey dokey – if I see him I’ll snap his picture before he hotfoots it outta town! LOL
