Aaron the Explorer

February 28, 2020

There have been many famous explorers in the history of mankind (other than Dora and the internet browser of course).

Marco Polo, Lewis and Clark, Neil Armstrong, and many other explorers earned their way into our history books.

In our age of Google Maps and satellite imagery, exploration is a little different. But that doesn’t discourage Aaron John from going to some of the least known places where few travelers ever go.

From making the uncomfortable trek to the ship-breaking yards in Chittagong, Bangladesh,

to getting off the beaten path in the valleys of northern Laos,

to flying to the isolated country of Nauru (one of the hardest countries to visit),

and to the other places where Aaron has explored: Tuvalu (the least-visited country in the world), Palau, the Marshall Islands, and lots more.

Shoutout to Aaron for being a modern explorer and for all his contributions to Taaluma Totes since the very beginning. Thanks for always finding fabric for us on your explorations (and for this awesome find in Sri Lanka)!

Here’s to finding your inner explorer… and to feeling good — because after all, it’s Friday!

Nature tells stories. Good ones too!

There are 4 types of Hmong people that live in this area. The Red Hmong, Black Hmong, Green Hmong and the Flower Hmong tribes. We visited a very remote region that is dominated by the Flower Hmong people and we explored the Bac Ha market which is rarely seen by outsiders.
