Puppy Love and Travel Memories

Puppy Love and Travel Memories

By now you’ve probably seen the Budweiser Super Bowl commercial “Puppy Love” – it’s had over 45 million views on YouTube and is simply a beautiful video.

If you haven’t yet, we’ve embedded it below because we definitely don’t need an excuse to watch it for the hundredth time!

Anyway after seeing that commercial, it took us back to our time in St. Louis in 2011 and memories of our Anheuser-Busch brewery tour, home of Budweiser and the Budweiser Clydesdales.

We then started looking through the other 140 or so photos we took during our time in St. Louis, the first time we’ve viewed them since we visited! And even though it wasn’t our favorite city in the world, the great memories we had there started flooding back.

Like the time we were taken to our hotel in a limo instead of a regular taxi…

Or that time we took a tiny little capsule to the top of the famous Gateway Arch…

Then there was our first ever professional ice hockey experience…

And finally, what about the delicious barbecue feast we enjoyed at Pappys Smokehouse or a serving of the classic St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake?

Just by looking at this photo, our mouths started watering and it was like we were eating it all over again and savoring every bite.

It’s amazing how a few photos can suddenly trigger the most intense of feelings.

Take 10 minutes this weekend to go through some of your old travel photos – they’re sure to bring a smile to your face!

And if you don’t have time to do that, scroll back up and watch the Budweiser commercial again. That will do the trick! :-D

      We don’t have a screensaver set up but that’s an excellent idea… and yes, the barbecue was delicious. Makes us want to go back to the US and eat our way around the country!

    That advert is soo cute, first time I saw it I ended up re-watching it five times in a row, couldn’t get enough! Glad it’s brought back some of your own memories, love that you accidentally got a limo!

      Haha we did the exact same thing – watched it several times. Absolutely love it! The limo thing was hilarious, we went to the nearest hotel looking for a cab and they took us to our accommodation in that for $10, which we didn’t realize was just a couple of blocks away. Makes for a good story though! :)
