InternetÂ sensation Lego Travellers shares amazing vacationÂ photosÂ from two tiny globetrotters whose adventures have go viral.
LEGO Travellers project was created by a couple who are busy travelling throughout picturesque Australia, taking photos of their pint sized counterparts in famous corners of the country.
Craig and Lindsey, who originally hail from Scotland and are also known as theÂ Lego Travellers, are ready to share with everyone their own travelling experience.
“We like to travel as much as we can, and when we go somewhere new, Lindsey always has the camera and I carry the map and a bag with our things,” Craif told reporters.
It was by chance that the man hadÂ discovered his oldÂ LegoÂ toysÂ back inÂ 2012. While others might have given outÂ their old childhood collection of famous toysÂ or chose to save them for further generations, Craig had found a more useful and creative way of bringing his old bricks to life again.
“It all started when I was clearing out my Mum’s loft and found the old Lego and we started rebuilding it all.
“I found a little camera.
“When we go on holidays she’s always got the camera, I’ve always got the bag and the map, so I thought the little Lego figures could represent us.”
“I made two Lego figures to represent [me and Lindsey], and that was the first gift I gave Lindsey when we were in Paris for her 30th [birthday]. When we were out sightseeing, we took a few pictures of Lego ‘us,’ with the main tourist sights in the background and joked about making aÂ FacebookÂ page.”
They loginedÂ Lego Travellers into an official Facebook page a year ago, and in the time since, it has attractedÂ more than 1,800 followers. The family coupleÂ have also expanded their Lego personas’ social media presence toÂ TwitterÂ andÂ Instagram.
Now in Australia, the two certainly haven’t lost the thrill of travel.
“We bought a camper van when we arrived in Sydney in October and have been traveling around Oz ever since,” Craig said. “We’re living and working in Perth at the moment, having driven here all the way from the Gold Coast.”
He went on, adding thatÂ Esperance was a place they would like to return to in the warmer months. “The colour of the water I loved, I couldn’t get past that. I’d love to spend more time down there.”
Their little Lego friends stay with them along the way, for each adventures â€” big or small.
“Last Thursday we had 1000 likes on Instagram, now we’re over 4000,” Craig said. “It’s just gone crazy over the last few days. People just love it, we’ve had no bad feedback at all and people love the idea and the pictures.”
