Travel Emoji’s We Wish Existed!

Originally meaning pictograph, the word emoji literally means “picture” (e) + “character” (moji)

Centuries ago, ancient Egyptians told tales in hieroglyphics – a system of writing involving a series of pictures or symbols. Fast forward to today, and we’re now sharing our stories with the help of teeny, tiny pictures and symbols called ’emojis’! Unlike the ancient Egyptians, in todays high tech, gadget obsessed world, we can communicate with a much larger audience than we ever have done before. And this communication is instant! Knowing full well that at times, things can get a little lost in translation (or a lot), with text not able to accurately relay our emotions or intent, sometimes nothing says it better than a tiny ’emotional’ image! After all, a picture can say more than any number of words could.

Some of the best memories we share are one’s from our travels, and with a substantial emoji keyboard at our fingertips, there are PLENTY to choose from and almost every iconic symbol you could ask for.

With new emoji’s recently released (thank you for the taco! #prayersanswered), I scrolled through Instagram and had a think about some that are yet to make the cut and that I’d personally love to see created! What do you think? I would love you to share any additions of your own in the comments below! You never know…there’s a very (very) slim chance they could make it in the next update 😉
