Blogger travels around Europe accompanied by cutout of deceased dad

When a beloved leaves you behind, what would you do? In Jinna Yang’s case, her father passed away in 2012 from stomach cancer. To honor her dad who had worked hard to raise her and never travelled abroad during his lifetime, she had a life-size cutout of her dad made, quit her job, gave up her New York apartment and flew to Europe with it.

Both Jinna and cutout have since been to Iceland, England, France, and Italy. And Jinna is already planning to visit Spain and Croatia with her handsome 2D dad. At this rate, there’ll be no prizes for guessing who’ll walk Jinna down her own wedding aisle.
