Rarely do our photographs really capture the fun of travel. We're all guilty of crowding our loved ones' News Feeds with the same old snapshots in front of famous landmarks while on vacation.
But these little plastic globetrotters have found a new and creative way to document their travels.
 
Craig and Lindsey, who originally hail from Scotland and are also known as the Lego Travellers, had trekked around the world even before adopting their Lego personas.
"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," said Craig told Mashable.
It was by chance that Craig discovered his old Lego collection in his mother's loft in 2012. While others might have donated their old childhood toys or chose to save them in the name of nostalgia, Craig had a more useful way of bringing his old bricks to life again.
"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 a Facebook page."

They turned Lego Travellers into an official Facebook page in February 2013, and in the time since, it has amassed more than 1,800 followers. Craig and Lindsey have also expanded their Lego personas' social media presence to Twitter and 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."
Their little Lego friends stay with them along the way, for each adventures — big or small.
