Travel bugs are small trinkets or objects that are often placed in geocaches, which are hidden containers for people to find using GPS coordinates. These travel bugs can be anything from keychains to figurines and are meant to be taken from one geocache to another, with the goal of traveling as far and wide as possible. They often have a unique tracking code so that their journey can be followed online. Travel bugs are a fun way for geocachers to connect and see how far their bug can travel. They also add an element of surprise and excitement to the geocaching experience.
