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.
Traveler Tim recently visited one of his favorite places in the world, a small village near Bamako, Mali.
Back in 2017, Tim helped open a middle school with a foundation called Mali Rising, which focuses on building schools in remote areas to spread education to the youth.
Traveler Matthew recently traveled to Taipei, Taiwan to visit his cousin.
The trip left him feeling bubbly since there were plen-tea of amazing things to do.
