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!

From eating the Thai-riffic street food that many say is the best food they’d ever pad,
Traveler Lucy, a self-proclaimed Taalumaniac, lived in Malaysia for a few years when she was a young child.
Now an adult, she returned to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to find her childhood home.
Armed with a handful of memories and unwavering determination, she set out on her quest.
