Travel theme: Pairs

Just as the two main US presidential candidates announced their running partners, a wedding invitation arrived in the post for me. It seems like everyone is getting paired up these days, so here’s a travel theme to reflect that, starting with a strange pair of statues in a New York subway station.

These two gulls were getting cozy on a Long Island beach.

How about this startlingly pink and frilly pair of short shorts on sale along the New Jersey boardwalk.

My favourite footwear, a trusty pair of jungle boots that have travelled with me through jungles and deserts and even climbed volcanoes.
