When you travel nearly 3,000km, you come across some things that are so weird and cute and curious (sometimes all at once!) that can only be described as funny.  Even the fact that many of those things were spotted in pairs, close to each other, is a funny coincidence! I didn’t take photos of everything, but here’s a list of 12 of the funniest things I saw around the North Island.
