One seat is never enough for Simba. He needs room to stretch out. Here is taking up the  entire first row in business class on Lufthansa’s commuter flight from Frankfurt to Hannover. There’s no first class on these flights only business class is the best you can get.

Simba wants to gives a special thank you to the staff and crew of Lufthansa, Frankfurt am Main Flughafen, Hannover Airport and Vancouver International Airport for making his journey as pleasant as possible, attending to all his unique needs and making his journey across the ocean truly a special one.

Douglas Cuddle Toys is the company who made the Simba featured in this photoblog. Douglas has been in the stuffed animal business for over fifty years and makes some of the nicest plush animals. They especially do a great job of capturing the character of the animal in the faces. Simba was made by them 19 years ago when The Lion King was originally released. Simba has not been available for many years and is quite hard to find today. Since Simba was in the area he just had to go pay a visit to his birthplace. The staff at Douglas were very friendly and were glad to meet Simba. Simba even was able to meet his original designer who has been with Douglas for over 35 years. A special thank you to Douglas and their staff for their time and for making so many beautiful animals and for making Simba too.

Not much to see along I-90 through southern Minnesota other than the Hormel Foods museum of Spam in Austin, MN. Simba wasn’t much interested in spam and did not like all the mosquitoes much. So Simba headed on through Minnesota to the Mississippi river.
