15 Statues With Solid Selfie Game

5 November 2015

It's time to accept that selfies aren't going to disappear via the same fad exit door as planking and coning (two significant lows in our 60,000-plus years of existence).

While there are plenty of selfies that equate to throwing ice cream at a 15-year-old McDonald's employee on $14 an hour (any taken inside Auschwitz), a recent rise in the #statueselfie offers a glimmer of hope that we're not completely self-absorbed.

I'll happily trade a close up of your mug for sharing a piece of art and history in one of the world's amazing destinations. Just don't break the statues, please.

I love the kind of travelling that is one part strategic planning and two parts spontaneous adventure. Whether I'm exploring my local city or a small town in the middle of nowhere, I'm always hoping to find something no one else has discovered.
