This Taiwanese Couple Parodied A Famous Travel Meme.

Do you remember that photo trend #followmeto - where traveling couples would take pictures of the girl 'pulling' her boyfriend's hand through a number of beautiful locations?

And while, yes, this photo series is absolutely stunning, it doesn't seem to capture the REALITY of traveling with a loved one.

However, this parody series made by Taiwanese couple Forrest Lu and Agnes Chien on their trip to Hawaii totally does.

Their photos - with Agnes pulling Forrest along by hair, ears, and even nostrils - has already been shared on social media thousands of times!

So to all the Travelers of Vingle, which one can you relate YOUR travel experiences to? The original or the parody?

Let me know in the comments below!

Hiking the Kalalau Trail on the island of Kauai, Hawaii
The Kalalau Trail is a trail along Nā Pali Coast of the island of Kauai in the state of Hawaii. The strenuous trail runs approximately 11 miles (18 km) along the island's north shore from Keʻe Beach to the Kalalau Valley. Expert hikers can complete the round-trip 22 mile trek as a day hike, but the average hiker requires a two-day minimum and will camp along the trail. Camping is only permitted on the beach at Hanakoa Valley (6 mile mark) and Kalalau Beach. The trail is notable for its remoteness, beauty, difficult terrain and dangers. Backpacker Magazine listed it as one the "10 Most Dangerous Hikes" in the US. Outside magazine rated it as one of "The 20 Most Dangerous Hikes" in the world. For those with weak ankles or a bad sense of balance, perhaps this isn't the best trail for you. And, you can forget about bringing a baby stroller with you and leave your pets at home! But for those hikers willing to brave the occasional sheer cliff that drops hundreds of feet to the rocky, crashing ocean shore below, they're rewarded with some of the most stunning vistas anywhere on the planet. From azure and turquoise ocean waters to thick, green forested canopies, almost all who hike the trail will say it was well worth the sweat and fears. I recommend starting your hike early in the day so that you needn't worry about running out of daylight. There are countless places along the trail where you'll want to sit, relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery. Some sections of the trail are easier to navigate than others, especially if the weather has been dry for the previous couple of days. As anyone who has hiked this trail will tell you, bring plenty to drink! It gets very hot and muggy along the trail as much of it is shielded from the cooling breezes that offer respite, and there are no water fountains or springs from which to drink, along the path. This is not a trail one should attempt with their everyday sneakers. It's highly recommended you wear sturdy hiking boots, securely laced, they may save your ankles and balance more times than you'd expect! Simple, flat dirt sections are easy enough in dry weather, but shortly after a rainfall even these segments of the trail can become treacherous, especially when you consider that a steep cliff awaits you on one side! So, if you get a chance to visit Kauai and if your physical abilities permit, I highly recommend giving the Kalalau Trail a try. It's an experience you'll remember for the rest of your life. Kauai and the Kalalau trail awaits you! (All photos shared in this article are from the author's personal trip to the Kalalau Trail in February 2015 and may be re-used without permission.)
New York State of Mind in the Aloha State
So I've just returned to New York City from Hawaii. Specifically, from the island of Oahu. My special lady and I just celebrated 5 years together, and we figured it was a good time to do something big, something a little more exciting than just dinner. It was a fantastic time. There is just so much to do, to see, to experience. We spent a week there but really, you could spend a month and still be left wanting. From the ocean, as blue as blue gets, to the mountains, as rugged as they come, Hawaii invites you to explore. Being from New York, I don't drive. I don't even have a license, so I couldn't even if I wanted to. In the city, this is never a problem. I'm never limited by my lack of vehicular transportation. If anything, it makes it easier to get around, because I'm not worried about gas, or parking, or etc. etc. However, pretty much everywhere else, this is a major issue. There are very few walking cities in the US, from what I can gather. Oahu made it difficult. Still, though, with the doggedness that an NYC ubringing instills in a person, we did not back down from the challenge that was getting around the Hawaiian island. The public transit service is accurately called "The Bus" and it's pretty easy to get into the use of. It's actually tied into google maps, so you can get (mostly) accurate times and schedules for the various routes. Armed with bus passes, we took the island on, travelling at our leisure to and from sites like Pearl Harbor, the Polynesian Cultural Center, and Aloha Stadium. Not being a driver, I can't speak to the experience of driving around Oahu as a means of soaking in the environment of the island. What Ican say, though, is that doing it on the bus is incredible. The thing about public transit, anywhere you go, is that it is the lowest common denominator. You have all types of people travelling around using the bus, or the train, or trams, or whatever your home town uses. From tourists to locals, from wealthy to poor (maybe not so many wealthy people though) So you get a least a taste of what the locals are like, and more than that, because the public transit system has to do it's best to cater to everyone, even those off the beaten path, you get to see a lot more than you would if you were to drive. Driving yourself, you'd be able to take the highway, shave 45 minutes or more off the same trip for the bus. Yet, you would only see half the stuff, if that. You'd be focused on the road, so a whole lot would just slip by you. This is the virtue of the New York state of mind. It forces you to do things differently. It gives you the opportunity to see the things others won't.
9 Beautiful Places To Travel Without Leaving The States
Most people get bit by the travel bug at some point in their life. What sucks is that being a world traveler can cost a lot of money. Then you have to take time off of work, which costs you money, fly everywhere which costs you time, and deal with currency exchange which can cost you a ton! But just because you can't fly off to an unknown continent doesn't mean you can't travel! Using budgettravel.com I have chosen for you the most amazing places to visit state side. Now start planning your trip already, you aren't getting any younger! The Grand Canyon Every single person who has ever been to the Grand Canyon always says that their pictures can't even capture its beauty, which is crazy because look how beautiful that picture is! My friend just went there and said that little river flowing through the canyon is actually bigger then a football field....if that gives you any idea how HUGE it actually is. Lake Tahoe In beautiful, warm Cali Tahoe could be another world. The waters are clear, bright blue and anything we all ever crave out of a tropical retreat....except you can still drink the water! Yellow Stone National Park A park full of natural wonder, you can spend weeks just exploring the wildlife. This park is full of beautiful flowers, hot springs and wild animals to make you feel like you have just stepped into a forest untouched by humans (yet still feel safe). Also the park contains the largest active geyser in the world that erupts all the time! Redwood Forest Cali isn't just all beaches and sun bathing. The Redwood forest is one of the most magical places on earth and it will defiantly make you feel small. Just look at the difference between the full gown man and the redwood trees. Now picture that surrounding you. Jackson Hole, Wyoming Breath taking in both the winter and the summer, Jackson Holes Teton Mountain Range makes me want to move there right now! Amazing for skiing and hiking the little town lights up like Time Square in the night. Big Sur, California Driving along the coast of this mountain range gives you all the best views of the beautiful Pacific Ocean! There are places to camp, dine, hike or just stop your car and enjoy the view and the salty breeze on your face. Time Square NYC From someone who lives here, I almost forgot to add in Time Square, however it most defiantly is a sight worth seeing in your life. Especially at night when everything is lit up. Expect to always have your eyes facing towards the sky as the lights and sky scrapers attack your eyes in the best possible way! Then go check out some more of NYC, like central park and governors island. Antelope Canyon Arizona Pretty sure this picture speaks for itself. Walking though these canyons must be jaw dropping, with waterfalls and bright colors and Dr. Seuss like rocks its no surprise people put this on their bucket list! Couples have even gotten their wedding pictures taken in the canyon! The Beartooth Highway in Montana Get in touch with nature walking around these mountains! Full of wild flowers, butterflies and other amazing wildlife it is hard not to get butterflies while looking at this picture! I can't imagine what it would be like in person! Girdwood, Alaska I had to put Alaska on this list because to many people think of this jaw dropping state as unlivable. With perfect snow covered trees and a silence that can actually be heard (weird right?), winter here is almost worth the cold. And in the summer the lakes and rivers are perfect for fishing and swimming and the mostly untouched land really makes you feel like humans haven't ruined everything yet.
