Our Backpack Travel Twins Travel the World!

Two of our customers Howard and Kathy Knaggs spent a year, most of 2009 and I believe January of 2010 on a tour around the world. We are lucky enough to be their friends and they chose to share their trip in pictures with our Backpack Travel Twin Balanced Organizer bags in all of the wonderful places they visited on this once in a lifetime journey.Thank you for thoe thoughtfulness you guys!

The pictures are priceless and the emails are great! We can't wait to see you in Spokane, or maybe you will journey down to one of the other shows close by even sooner. Here are the emails that they sent with the photos! Wish we could have been there! As our bags seem to be far more traveled than we are (Laughing out loud)

Hey there,

I forgot the picture that we took of Kathy and the purse in Istanbul. Actually, we'll be back to Turkey in a couple of months, but only for a day, in Ephesus.

Hi Kathy and Andrew

We've been on the move and haven't had much of a chance to send you some more photos of our "Ace Purses on the move". So, I have attached a bunch of pictures that show the purses in various places that we've visited, more recently. We're currently in Germany until next Wednesday, when we fly to London to spend the next several weeks in the British Isles. I trust that your summer is going well. I am sure that you're both busy this time of year. Take care and we will send more pics as we continue our sojourn

Good morning, Kathy and Andrew

We've been on the move through Asia, and haven't been sending you any pictures of the "Ace Purse on the move" So I'm attaching some additional pictures that we've been taking along the way. Unfortunately, we didn't get any good ones of the purse in action in Mongolia, but it's one place that we really enjoyed. We took a ride across the Steppes on Mongolian horses, but unfortunately, because the horses get spooked over little things, we weren't allowed to take things like purses along with us!

We are three months into the trip, and other than Kathy being sick throughout most of Vietnam, we continue to have a ball with all of this. Currently, we're in Bangkok, Thailand. We're here for a week, then moving down to the coast, to Phuket, for another two weeks before leaving Asia for Africa. Phuket is our "down time" place, where we'll spend some quality time planning Europe in more detail. So far, we have flights up to our arrival (the 2nd time) in continental Europe, but so far we don't have our tickets home.

Hopefully, Spring is finally starting back there. It sounds like it's been a really long winter for you all. In truth, that sounds pretty good, considering that it's in the mid-90's here, with humidity to match! Oh well, we're working our way through it.

Hi Kathy and Andrew

Well we're a month into our journey around the globe, and we've been taking pictures of the Ace purses, as we march along. I've sent only one set of pictures to you, and that was of 3 purses in Hawaii, including the two that we own, plus one that our friend Terry Cowger owns. They were with us in Kauai, where we to the pictures. From there, Kathy and I flew down to French Polynesia, where we took a picture of our two bags, then on to New Zealand for the next shot, and just an hour ago, we took one of Kathy's purse at the Sydney Opera House, in Sydney Australia. Since I haven't heard from you, as to whether or not you got the first photos from Hawaii, I'm thinking that the size of the files that I attached may have exceeded your limit, and you didn't actually receive the pictures. So, this time, I'm sending all the photos with reduced file sizes. If that will work for you, that's fine. If you'd like the picture files to be larger, let me know.

We're having a great time, and looking forward to a lot more adventures. We'll be in Australia for another 6 plus weeks, then move on to Mongolia, China, SE Asia etc. Take care and we'll keep sending you pictures of the purses, as we move along.

Well, Kathy and I are finally beginning our year long, round the world trip. We are here in Kauai, Hawaii for the first week, with our dear friends Ron and Terry Cowger. The four of us have come to Kauai many times together, so it's a good way to start our trip. As promised, we've taken some pictures of your Ace purses "on location, at Poipu Beach, Kauai HI, where we were snorkeling today. For these pictures, we actually have 3 Ace purses; one of them (the brown/black one) belongs to Terry Cowger, the black one is Kathy's and my "man purse" is the brown one.We doctored two of them up a little for the "shoot". If you'd prefer future pictures with no "makeup" let me know, otherwise, you may sometimes find the purses in various disguises as we move along.

Our next stop, after Hawaii, is Tahiti, then New Zealand and Australia, so look for future pictures from us. Take care and have a great evening.
