Pleasantfest Bear’s travels

Me being born... in a bus station.

Whilst traveling the world there are times when you happen to have a lot of time on your hands. Some of this time can be spent sat on the floors of bus and train stations, golden sand beaches, restaurants and bars, airport lounges and boats.

Being a creative person I thought I would apply some creativity to the mix whilst letting the time run through our fingers…… This is when Pleasantfest Bear was born. (Place of birth……Pondicherry, India)

All that was required were the lining of some old pants, a couple of buttons, an old top for stuffing, a needle, a thread, and the legendary PleasantFest Logo from our rather dirty brown T-shirts that we brought will us.

Pleasantfest Bear is our new travel photographic buddy who will travel around making new friends and seeing some of the worlds most famous and amazing sights it has to offer.

If you love Pleasantfest Bear and want to sign up for new stories on how he is coping in the travel world please leave comments on his personal page. See below.

All the best from Pleasantfest Bear……and a Happy New Year for 2011

    Dear Pleasantfest Bear,

    Just a short note to say I am a big fan of your blog. I find it to be much more up-my-street than the other blog on this site, as well written as it is.

    Let Rachel and Andy know that they are being missed and that their friends are looking forward to seeing them again.

    Hopefully the builders will have finished repairing their house before they return, following the fire(s), and Neil’s newly aquired traveller friends and their animals will have moved out of the garden.

    Lots of love,

      Dear Ben

      Its so nice to hear from a fan… even though you are one of many thousands who are loving my work.

      Rachel and Andy are none too concerned about the building work… they are too busy dealing with the many dangers that are in place in south east asia… crossing the road, riding motorbikes, ordering food, drinking water etc.etc. but I shall pass on the message nonetheless.

    Cambodia where in certain restos “don’t serve dogs,cats,monkeys,rats,woroms”
