They Draw & Travel

30 Apr

Here’s a cool website for some travel related artwork- it’s called They Draw & Travel. It features artwork from artists all over the world. The website makes it easy to narrow down to what you’d like- you can search by destination, art style, and vibe. Below are some that have caught my eye (click on the images for a larger version). Happy browsing!

TDAT- Buenos Aires

TDAT- New York

TDAT- Los Angeles

TDAT- Greece

TDAT- Tanzania

TDAT- Kyoto

And if you are food minded- here’s the original site called They Draw & Cook which TDAT was spun off from. Enjoy!

iPhones in the World

3 Jun

At home there’s always the iPhone versus Android debate, where folks will deliberately NOT use an iPhone because they are Apple haters. We definitely haven’t seen this trend around the world. In many countries we’ve noticed that using an iPhone is akin to driving a nice car or toting an LV bag- it’s a status symbol of sorts. While on the hunt for an iPhone case, we saw that Vietnam in particular had nearly zero iPhone cases for sale (we met up with my cousin in Saigon and all his friends had no cases on their iPhones) and in Thailand, many of the iPhone cases had either a hole in the back that showed the apple logo, or the cases looked exactly like the back of an iPhone, just in more vibrant colors. Of course there’d be the requisite typo, we saw a case that spelled “California” incorrectly. It’s like wearing a Tomy Hilfiger shirt or carrying a Guggi wallet!

I never thought that a cell phone would be a status symbol, but now it makes sense! In case you’re wondering, here’s my new case:

Just kidding.
Here’s really what my case looks like:

Okay, I’m kidding again! I just wanted to show y’all how ugly and tacky these iPhone cases are haha. PS you can see the hole where the apple logo would show.
For the last time:

It took me forever to find it, but it was worth it! Gotta love useful souvenirs!

Many of you have probably seen Matt Harding’s videos, but if you haven’t, you’re in for a treat.  To learn more about him and the story behind his awesome videos, visit his website.  I suggest you watch these in chronological order.  The music from the latest video is my favorite!  I can’t wait for his next video to come out!
