A furry visitor from the west



WALT aka West Australian Lone Traveller, is a teddy bear Susan from Jacana blog rescued from a thrift shop. She set him off on a trip around australia with a backpack and a travel journal.

Walt arrived on my doorstep with his backpack on Friday, I was excited to see him. He was so adorable, I gave him a big cuddle(shocked me, I was cuddling him before I knew what I was doing, he's a charmer), and let him hang out on the lounge to watch some telly to recuperate after his long trip. Our house was the first stop on his whirlwind tour of the country.


He came out with us on Saturday night to a 40th birthday party, and in true dress up style, as a flying monkey from the Wizard of OZ. 


Partying it up, we were warned.
  
He hung out with the kids, sometimes just laying around on the floor, coz he couldn't keep up, and getting cuddles, possibly from sticky fingers, but coming out pretty unscathed(thank goodness). 

We took him sightseeing belted in with Izzys 'baby'

Walt left yesterday, and is off for another adventure somewhere in Queensland, so if you're in that part of the world, keep an eye out for him loitering around your doorstep. He really is bloody adorable and no trouble whatsoever.

  1. Love it - we did something very similar when Gorgeous Son was in kindy - many years ago - they made an outline of themselves on paper and then sent them on their travels to see how far they could travel - all the travel was documented and eventually they arrived back home... some of the kids travelled far and wide and had some awesome adventures. :-)

  8. WOW - looks like Walt has been partying hard. So much more fun that being in a box in an Op Shop. Not sure who's costume is better Walt's or yours. Thank you very much for having him as a house guest and sending him on his way to Queensland.
