You know by now that we suffer from the travel bug.
I also have a “Love Bug” – the Volkswagen type. . .a Herbie, VW Bug.
Herbie, is my loved Bug. So when I travel I am always on the lookout for ‘cousins’ and on this Travel Photo Thursday I thought I’d show you where I found them and what they were up to:
This travelin' Herbie was heading out into the southwest desert after getting filled up at a station in Tonopah, Nevada.
Another hard-working Herbie was spotted in Las Vegas, Nevada’s Town Square Shopping Center. As the dill pickle on top reads, “We Dill iver”.
This precious purple Herbie was parked on a street near a pile of garbage in Trabzon, Turkey.
Hellenic Herbie came zipping into the parking area to await a ferry on the island of Poros, Greece.
Cousin cool dude Herbie was in the Fashion Show Mall on The Vegas Strip, doing nothing more than being admired by shoppers.
Herbie, the Hawaiian, was sitting in the shade in Haleiwa on O’ahu’s North Shore.
This Baja Bug of a Herbie was in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico last week.
For those of you who’ve not yet met my Herbie. . . here he is: a 69 VW Bug (stick shift, automatic) that my dad bought used in 1972 to serve as my college car. This photo was taken two years ago; four decades, two engines and nearly 200,000 miles later.
How about you? Any Herbie’s in your life? Any icons that you seek out when you travel?
Don’t forget to hop in the driver’s seat and head on over to Budget Traveler’s Sandbox for more travel photos.
