Traveling the globe means experiencing brilliant locations, delicious food, and meeting new people. And while souvenirs and postcards are great, there’s no better way to say “Wish you were here!” than with a selfie of you enjoying the sites. Although places like New York City museums and Walt Disney World have banned the use of “Selfie Sticks” – those useful, yet often hated, devices that allow you to take pictures beyond your own arm length – there are plenty of other places where they are acceptable. And there’s certainly no lack of other accessories and smartphone attachments to help enhance the lighting or background to ensure you get the perfect picture every time.
That’s right, selfie mania isn’t going anywhere any time soon and nearly every platform of social media embraces those who love to take pictures of themselves with encouraging likes, loves, and comments. Although a selfie can be taken anywhere from the bathroom to the edge of the Grand Canyon, some places are certainly more impressive than others.
The following are a few of the Top Global Selfie Sites for you to consider. Of course, we couldn’t help but include some of our all over print apparel to wear when choosing your next photo op!

Big Ben, London
Located at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, Big Ben is the nickname for the Great Bell of the clock. Big Ben refers to both the clock and the clock tower. Designed in neo-gothic style by Augustus Pugin, when it was completed in 1859, it was the largest and most accurate four-faced striking and chiming clock in the world. Standing at 315 feet tall, if you want to take a selfie at the top, you’ll have to climb 334 steps to the top. Worth it, right?

Sagrada Familia, Barcelona
No trip to Barcelona would be complete without a selfie in from of Sagrada Familia, Gaudí’s emblematic temple. This large unfinished Roman Catholic church in Barcelona was designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. In November 2010 Pope Benedict XVI consecrated and proclaimed it a minor basilica
