Teddy Bears, Munich Toy MuseumOne of the joys of travel is discovering the new and unfamiliar.

But another joy of travel comes when stumbling upon something very familiar in a land that had seemed quite “foreign” to you.

Toys speak a universal language of love to children, and to adults who have found memories of their childhood toys.

I smiled when I wandered into Munich’s Toy Museum and I saw these two stuffed bears snuggled up against each other. They reminded me of “The Teddy Bears Picnic,” a song I used to hear sung over the radio when I was very young.

So when you’re “on the road,” keep an eye out not just for whatever you’ve never seen before in places where you’ve never gone before, but for those small but important things which will transport you back home while you’re away from home.
