It always amazes me that people will go to great lengths to lug the extra baggage when they travel abroad. I have friends and colleagues who have brought back boxes and boxes of cookware from Langkawi and Haadyai, tons of clothes from Bangkok (of course), bundles of batik from Indonesia, bedding and towels from the US, and the list goes on. One even brought back a stained glass table-top from Bali! But then again, that is one beautiful artwork which now makes a great conversation piece at the patio.
One colleague vouches that bedding in the US are undoubtedly of better quality than the ones we find here. Talk about bedding, I came across one such site, matouk. They have great stuff and high-thread count luxurious bedding, towels, etc., and they've been in business since 1929!
So, are you one who doesn't mind all that lugging from your shopping? What's your biggest achievement?
