BELIZE: Belize Tourism Board Honours Sweater Collector With Free Vacation To Belize
With the holidays now over, Christmas trees have been discarded and ugly Christmas sweaters have been boxed up for another season. But one man from Baltimore has ingeniously figured out a way to don ‘ugly’ sweaters year round and travel the world at the same time.
But it’s not the high quality stitching of his sweaters that caused him to go viral – it’s the images he’s knitted onto them. Famous landmarks from around the world, like Stonehenge and the Dead Sea, have all found their way into his collection. And if that weren’t endearing enough, Barsky has taken to travelling to these landmarks and photographing himself in front of them while wearing their corresponding sweater.
He’s become an Internet sensation – and, quite possibly, the best-dressed world traveller that we know of.
