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!
While driving from Kansas City to Omaha we made a stop in Kansas to visit the Amelia Earhart Birthplace in Atchison. Just before driving over a bridge into Kansas I noticed a sign for Kansas but it was too late to pull over.
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!
Then just a minute or so further down the road, I came across the sign for Missouri.
What kind of things do you like to do while traveling to have a little extra (and unconventional) fun?
