Tuk-Tuk Goose

December 13, 2019

Colombo, Sri Lanka, is a cool place. If you don’t know where it is and you own an iPhone, have S-i-ri Lanka it up for you.

Colombo is an extremely busy city, as Traveler Aaron John discovered. 

From dodging tuk-tuks.

To avoiding bikes while trying to cross the street...

But the craziness didn’t keep Aaron from completing his wild goose chase in search of Sri Lanka’s best fabric.

Thanks Aaron for your determination!

Here’s to you and the beautiful island country of Sri Lanka.

And to its beautiful sunrises...

(Wow, it just dawned on me...getting up that early can be a real sun of a beach)

And to the radical surfers who don’t wear shirts. “Cowabunga, dude! Sun’s out, puns out!”

And, of course, to traveler Aaron for Rupee-tedly going the extra mile to find awesome fabric.

So in the midst of life’s busyness...

Here’s to trying to keep calm and curry on… and to feeling good — because after all, it’s Friday!

PS. Plus a few more totes so cool, they may just make regular backpacks irrelephant.

"During our trip to Laos, we took a long river trip up the Mekong river. I wanted to visit a remote elephant sanctuary where the elephants are not required to perform heavy labor and their natural habitat is protected. The elephants in this sanctuary are handled by people called Mahouts. When only a small boy, a Mahout is paired with a baby elephant, and they are bonded for life.The Mahout are a people and a way of life that is rapidly disappearing. It was truly special to meet them.”
