Why the name, My Traveling Panda?

In 2000 I was given a little stuffed panda as a gift.  I started taking his photos in various places I would visit and my friends started asking, “where is the panda?”, or “did you take the panda’s picture?”.  When I decided to start my own business, I knew I wanted a unique name- one that stood out.  So, I thought it would be a fun idea to name my business after the panda who has been traveling with me for so many years.
