The Tourist in My Selfie

It was exactly one year ago today we boarded a London-bound plane to kick off our 10-day jaunt through England, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Our trip started with a bright-eyed, sprightly airplane selfie and ended with an languid, much deserved airplane nap. No wonder we take those photos at the beginning of trips.

Anyhow, the selfie really is a form of tourism art. Nothing shows off the eagerness, the unabashed desire to immerse yourself in something bigger, than the well-positioned landscape selfie.

I was surprised at just how many vacation selfies I was able to dig up from my Facebook page alone. Where's the best vacation selfie you've ever taken?
