Travel Your Way with Canon EOS M10 and Rilakkuma!


You can call me a total newbie when it comes to travelling. As much as I want to escape from my mundane daily routine and just go breathe in the air of other countries, other 'worldly' commitments (read: job and student loan) made me put a temporary pause on my dream to just hop on a plane and travel. I am not the abrupt type so whenever I want to go somewhere I have to make sure my fund in my bank account is enough to support me post holiday. But recently I made a totally spontaneous decision and finally booked a ticket to fly to South Korea! *giggles* It was mainly because my boss is going to have his wedding ceremony there soon, but an excuse is a great start for someone who thinks too much like me. Yayy! So lately, realizing how clueless I am on travelling, I have been reading a lot on travelling looking for tips, do's and dont's, travel hacks, travel trends etc.



Coincidentally, right after I booked my tickets, I received an invitation to a Canon Malaysia event which introduces me to a really cute trend called Nui-Dori or more known as toy travel. I knew that people sometimes bring their toys or plushies to travel (and snap insta-worthy pictures of it) but never realise that it's such a big thing! So, of course, I went all 'OMGGG' after finding out. I mean, what a perfect timing right? I am so going to bring my plushie on my trip soon!


The art of Nui-Dori require two things, which are the toy and of course an amazing travel camera. With this idea in mind, Canon partnered up with Rilakkuma (yes, that adorable teddy brand from Japan) to bring their fans the ultimate travel companion. For a limited time, with the purchase of the special edition Canon EOS M10 box set, you will also receive the original limited edition 24cm Rilakkuma plush toy. Isn't it such a pleasant idea?!


How to Nui Dori?

Basically, it's taking pictures of your toy imitating life. Eating breakfast at a cool cafe, chilling at the beach, packing for next journey and etc. The idea is limitless and you can sort of just go with the feel. As long as you have a perfect travel camera (pssttt..Canon EOS M10), toy travelling would be a fun addition to your holiday itinerary.
