Border Jumping: Kansas & Missouri

$348.65 + 71,906 Points= Trip For 3: Air, Hotel & Car Rental

For one reason or another I’ve long enjoyed stopping for a photo at border crossings, especially those with some sort of sign or marker.

The first time I could think of doing this was when we walked across the border from South Africa to Namibia. I also had some fun jumping by the border of Kosovo and Albania during our trip last summer to the Balkans.

During our most recent trip to the Mid-West, we found a border marker at an unlikely place, on the middle of a bridge!

After visting the Earhart birthplace I decided to make a quick pit-stop on the way back. This quick stop became a fun little photo-op. Silly little things like this tend to make for a fun time with Lucas even trying to get in on the jumping fun!

What kind of things do you like to do while traveling to have a little extra (and unconventional) fun?
