Gummi Bears on Tour Around the World

Back in 2012 I wanted to see more of Europe and therefore bought myself a 30 day rail pass to visit as many countries as could. I had just bought a new camera and wanted to practice up close and distant shots, so I wanted to have the same object to take photos of where ever I went.

And what did I choose? Haribo Gummi Bears.

Every since I was a kid, I loved gummi bears (watching the TV show and also eating them), so when I was travelling, I decided to buy myself a packet. I also wanted to practice different types of shots.  I thought it would be cool to have the gummi bears represent my family.

My Dad is as white as a polar bear so he is the white gummi bear. My brother in law was in the army so he is green. My mom loves red and my sister and I are the orange and yellow ones.

The start of my trip, in Berlin, Germany. You can just about make out Aleksander Platz in the background.

Next stop was a trip to Budapest. Here they all are, in front of the river Danube.

After Austria, I made my way to Italy.

First stop was Verona where one of the bears went to visit the Colosseum.

From Verona I took a day trip to Venice. As you can see one of the bears have collapsed due to the heat.

The bears also did a spot of sightseeing in St Mark’s Square.

The bears took a stop in Pisa but it was only the red bear that wanted to be in a photo. The others went for pizza. Can you spot the bear?

The bears even went to Paris.

But there were too many people, so they went to the south of France.
