The Greatest Travel Selfie Ever


Forget the typical vacation selfie at the beach or club, instead climb to the top of Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio De Janeiro and snap one there. Taking the opportunity of a lifetime, Lee Thompson, a photographer and co-founder of travel group specialist The Flash Pack, obtained special permission to climb to the top of the statue while in Rio covering the World Cup.


See more photos below and a video of the experience exploring inside the famous statue:
