We prove a strong invariance principle between a transient Bessel process and a certain nearest neighbor (NN) random walk that is constructed from the former by using stopping times. We show that their local times are close enough to share the same strong limit theorems. It is also shown that if the difference between the distributions of two NN random walks are small, then the walks themselves can be constructed in such a way that they are close enough. Finally, some consequences concerning strong limit theorems are discussed.
