Backpack with integrated hood

A backpack with a hood. This is the original bet offered by the designer Eleonore de Ruuk for travelers. Apparently the woman is specialized in hoods and each design gets one; be it a shirt, a belt or even a purse. Some fixation will have the woman that I hope is not related to some trauma for not using another type of hood ... This backpack with integrated hood seems ideal in case you leave monsoons in Asia and you no longer know what to get in your head with so much rain falling over.

All-in-one bag, handbag and backpack

I love functional accessories and more when they help make the traveler's path easier. This bag called Go Anywhere Bag when compressed becomes a mini bag and can also become a small backpack for your daily getaways. And that's not all, because if you change your mind and decide to go shopping you can also convert it into a shopping bag or even a bag.

Ranking of cities in the world

Some time ago I learned that there was a classification of cities in the world; a kind of ranking that, following socioeconomic parameters, ordered the main metropolises of the planet according to their global character. In my opinion, and in other words, it indicates which are the cities from which the threads of this 'globalization' are handled, which is so fashionable, and which are the ones that are lagging behind.

In an emotional speech delivered through giant screens throughout the cities of the country, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd spoke the following words: “We apologize for the laws and policies of successive governments and parliaments that have inflicted deep pain, suffering and Loss to our Australian compatriots. ”The apology was especially directed to the tens of thousands of Aboriginal people who were necessarily separated from their families under ruthless policies of assimilation of abandoned children.

A train crossing the Bangkok market

Who has passed through the Bangkok market will remember this scene. The parsimony and tranquility with which Thai people take their lives will never cease to amaze me. Here we see them, dismantling the stalls before the train passes, slow - so that they later say RENFE - and, once free, they reassemble them so quietly.

Sintra: Cultural Heritage of Humanity

The day dawned splendid that Saturday after a rainy Thursday and a Friday in which the Sun was very doubtful. We pack fast, we catch some potatoes, a couple of bones - vice that I only enjoy when I bring them from Spain - and 6 or 7 tangerines, to give a healthy half touch to the matter.
