If you consult the Chinese lunar calendar, 2013 was supposed to be the year of the snake. Now if you ask the internet, it'll tell you this year belonged to the photobombing llama.

It didn't matter if you were at award ceremonies or weddings this year. So long as there were cameras, you could count on a photobomb. Not even travel photographers could escape them, with fish, giraffes and even Kevin Spacey getting in on the action in 2013.

Looking back at the last 12 months, The Huffington Post Canada hand-picked the 13 defining travel photobombs of the year for your enjoyment. If you're a shutterbug, this will be a source of aggravation. But for everyone else, break out the champagne and cheers to another year of hilarity.
