Globe-T. came to me as an idea as I was returning from a faraway trip, to Sri Lanka and the Maldives. Such wonderful destinations – little corners of paradise. I couldn’t bring myself to put an end to such an enchanted time. As I usually did when returning from my travels, I needed something to cushion my landing, to make it a kiss landing, as pilots say.
Some time after my return, I spotted this little winter hat on a shelf in my cabin in the mountains. He looked so sad! As I came closer, he whispered in my ear: « I want to see the world! »
How could I refuse? I’ve never done well with saying ‘no‘…
And so, the story of Globe-T., the travelling Winter Hat, as my travel companion with ideal measurements (height: 7 cm, diameter: 5 cm, ideal weight: 10 g), began.
Globe-T.’s humble goal is to escape the headlines in the news for a while (crisis, epidemic, scandal, disaster…), to encourage you to see the world from a different point of view (one belonging to a woolen winter hat, only a few centimeters tall), and to bring a breath of fresh air; a feeling of being elsewhere.
Globe-T. accompanies me on every one of my trips, nestled in my pocket, and comes out quite regularly for a quick photo session. Almost like a real life fashion model, he tends to attract a few curious onlookers among the passers-by.
Shortly thereafter, I share the pictures he chooses, with you. Many of them don’t pass the first round of his quality control: « no, not that one, it’s an unflattering angle »; « not this one either, I have a cowlick »; « I look a little pudgy in that one ». You can’t even imagine how self-conscious a woolen winter hat can be!
None of the pictures of the Travelling winter hat are photoshopped or digitally edited, apart from a few filters at most.
For more detailed information about Globe-T., I suggest you swing by the about page. To get to know the travelling Winter Hat, check out his Identi-T. page and to follow his – our – travels around the world, take a look at the destinations.
Finally, let me just add that this page has no political, religious or ideological aim whatsoever.
Come and escape everyday life for a while!
