Death knocked twice then climbed through the window. Its tongue began to wag like a snake dancing in the sea at night. A husky voice cracked into my mind and two words lodged in my ear...

A Balloonist’s Waist Pack

A Balloonist’s Waist Pack

A balloonist requires a low-level aviator license to fly. A few of us were standing around the beer cooler in Crumpler HQ talking about hot air balloons and our recent travels. The convo quickly turned to bags and lo, each of us had chosen the Low Level Aviator waist pack as our bag of choice for exploring new places.
 
Mexico D.F. was beautiful, hot, and wet. We wandered through shade and found a cantina to watch the World Cup before moving on to find coffee to fuel the afternoon. A late thunderstorm took the edge off the heat and called for a some street-side tacos and a beer.

KOH LIPE is a paradise lost in the Andaman Sea at the end of a 7-hour boat trip. This adventure cost us 2-days of seasickness, which combined with the laconic pace of the town to help us throw away any urgency. Surrounded by stray dogs, beach cats, and people, we drank beer on the beach and watched the world pass.

An early morning adventure through Ubud’s rice paddies with the family led us to a local jewellery designer then onto cooking classes. Grind then throw a fistful of salt, chili, and shrimp paste over chunks of melon and cucumber, and take in the view.

We’re working on a collection of GPS tracking miniature hot-air balloons that follow you around as you walk, thereby eradicating the need for backpacks and opening up a new world of on-the-go personal air-freight. Until we earn our low level aviator license, we’ll sling the waist pack, cram it full and keep walking until we find a cool beer.

A Tour Around the Vis-à-Vis

A Tour Around the Vis-à-Vis

It’s hard to imagine that it’s taken from the root system of a plant. It’s almost creamy but sharp too, it coats the tongue and roof of the mouth, turning the pearly off-whites to soot. Any seed but aniseed and it’s strong across the palate, almost clumsy. New liquorice flavoured Vis-à-vis, mmm delicious.
