Posted by on Dec 16, 2010 in Sandbox Photography, Travel Photo Thursday, Uncategorized | 17 comments

Last week saw the introduction of a new weekly feature here at Budget Travelers Sandbox; TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY. If you haven’t seen last week photos, you can check them out here.

Like last week, simply add a TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY post to your blog. Then, add your  link to the Mr Linky box at the end of this post. After you post do remember to leave a comment. Also, be sure to visit and comment on the photos from the other TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY bloggers.

When you are tweeting any of  the entries please use the hashtag #TPThursday.

Since I am hitting the road tomorrow, I think this is the perfect shot for this week.

In this shot my buddy Rudolph is bidding me Merry Christmas and farewell as I take off on my winter travels.  Rudolph will be  63 years old this Christmas. He was purchased for my oldest brother’s first Christmas. The last time I was home my Dad gave him to me, and he’s been living with me here in Korea ever since. Believe it or not, he still plays that famous song. Come on, sing it! I can hear you all HUMMING.………………………

  1. LOL, the Energizer Bunny ain’t got nutthin on your Rudolph. I kinda favor that l’il snowman in the picture. He’d probably fit in my pocket !

    Happy Holidays, Nancie and thanks for the invite.

  2. Love the picture. This Rudolph looks so much better than the ones in the shop! Hope the packing goes well and safe travels. Enjoy yourself and looking forward to the updates of your adventures!

  3. Haha, nice picture! Gets me ready for the holidays.

  4. How sweet….they certainly don’t make them like that anymore!

  5. Well firstly, let me be the first to wish Rudolph a very happy birthday for this Christmas! (By the way, has he taken a liking to kimchee yet?)

    All the best with your travels, Nancie! Looking foward to seeing your coming posts.

    • Andrew…….Kimchi is not his favorite……He will never be a Korean reindeer……although he’s always stealing the last piece of kimbap!

      I hope you’ll join Travel Photo Thursday soon!

  6. Here’s my travel photo for Thursday, Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria 🙂

  7. That’s a cute Rudolph… and it doesn’t show his age (^_^)

    Happy Holidays, Nancie!

    Sad to hear Savi has died. A symbol of hope for Chad’s elephants .

  9. Wow! Rudolph is getting up there! I have a Benji stuffed animal who I thought was old at 25! Have fun on your travels!

  10. isnt santa missing a reindeer?

  11. Love it! Rudolph is one of my favorites. And great new Thursday photo plan… I’ll try to remember to join in soon!

  12. I have a few of these quirky little reminders of home that I take around the world with me. It’s amazing how comforting it can be to have a physical touch stone during the holidays.

  13. Definitely! Reminders of home make the holidays a little brighter when you’re away.
