Fashion Note : Sarong FASHION SHOW

On this trip I introduced Ari to the beauty of
the SARONG - Exotic, Multi-Functional, and Packable

Hailing from island life, the Sarong is naturally Exotic as it is part of traditional dress of exotic peoples.

In the states most guys would never be caught wearing a sarong, but in Thailand and other south eastern Asian countries, it's quite common. Thus, I was able to convince Ari to borrow one of my less girly looking ones. After this trip, he may be sold on what a perfect piece of beach attire it is.

I may have coerced him into a Sarong Fashion show......

This technique is really great when you forget your hat on a kayaking trip, like Ari did. Just at the moment he started to become seasick (which was horribly funny - you had to be there, otherwise I just sound mean laughing at this) the heat was really getting to him. So I instructed him from the front to tie this around his head. Once again, he was loving his man sarong.




THE YOGA MATT SARONG
to achieve this look: spread sarong on sand and assume asana

These images just show a sampling of the MANY FUNCTIONS of the sarong. Coupled with how light they are and small they fold up, they are the perfect staple for a beach trip. When PACKING light, the sarong leaves more room for your ukelele.  Aside from the perfecto sarong, foreign trips always include a Lonely Planet Book.
