So for my next photo post I thought it would be nice to go back to the begining when I first met Duffy.
I had met Duffy in his previous incarnation as "The Disney Bear" and I didnt much care for him. My
mother and I had planned a trip one year in advanced for Disneyland in October 2010 to see family and
This trip had another event to celerbrate as it would be the first time I would meet my penpal Eric who I
had been in contact with for over a year. I would send Eric care boxes full of food then he
would in return send me back messages in bottles from whatever country he was in. I even sent
him a little monkey that he would take pictures of in all the fun places that he traveled too. I told
him that since I could not be with him in his travels that this monkey will take my place and keep him company.
As the closer that the trip got I was scanning the disney sites and saw that Duffy was coming. I wondered
to myself "who is this cute little bear"? I read Duffy's story about how Minnie made him for Mickey for his
travels and how they took pictures everywhere they traveled. I thought it was erie how similiar Duffy and
my stories were. I would be at Disneyland when he was being introduced so I figured that I would visit him
and see if he was as cute in person as he was on the internet.
When I arrived at Disneyland it was love at first sight for me and of these cute fuzzy guys in my life
Duffy came out to meet me
Duffy stole my bear and my heart
So as you can imagine Duffy now was my own little traveler
We travel on planes and cars
And pick out ridiculous items together
Duffy stole my heart and my peanuts on that October in 2010.
And he is one guy that I don't mind keeping them
And as for Eric, well I will let you know that I keep both of these world travelers by my side these days
