This multi colorful little bag came into my life back in February of 2011 from a woman on a side street in the tropical country of Barbados. Since then, it’s literally been by my side as I’ve worked my way around the world.
Packed along with “Big Blue” (named by a sweet friend and blog follower), it’s traveled planes, trains, buses, boats and has walked uncountable miles over my shoulder. It’s been used as a purse, over nighter, seat cushion, grocery sack, carry on, pillow, beach bag, door stop, and I’m sure several other things that have gone unmentioned.
Take a quick stroll with me as I recap some fond memories between me and my little travel buddy.
A little over 2 years doesn’t seem like a long time, but after trekking almost 30 countries, it’s time to pass along my durable sack of many uses. I’ve been offered money for it, friends have requested a trade and someone even suggested I auction it off for more travel funds!
With all of these wonderful thoughts, the only person I’ve had in mind was a sweet young girl who’s loved it from the beginning. Little did she know, this was the day in which she finally got her sisters purse.
Please smile with me as you view the new owner of the traveling bag (that’s as big as she is).
My beautiful sister Sarah!
Next step… Start looking for a new bag!
I’d love to give you my Erika bag. Do you remember it? I bought it because it reminded me of you
Sweet! That bag is almost as big as she is. 🙂
