Reasons to travel with someone you love

Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie

I don’t normally take photos of myself but, when it comes to selfies of me and Alex, oh I have hundreds!

When you travel with just the two of you, it’s hard to get photos together.  Either you’re stuck taking pictures of one or the other of you so it looks like you both went on holiday alone, or you have that awkward moment of asking a stranger to take a photo of you together, making sure you pick the person who looks most likely to understand English and most likely to be able to use a camera and take a half decent picture.

But when neither of these options are available we just take a good selfie of the two of us cheesily smiling into the camera and just hope that whatever backdrop is behind us actually shows up in the photo.

Some are hilarious, some stupid, some utter rubbish and some end up being my favourite photos.

I couldn’t simply pick one, so here is a small selection (warning: some of these may be a little sappy but seeing as it’s almost Valentine’s Day, we might as well get into the lovey dovey spirit!).
