    Article: Chris Guillebeau visted every country in the world, with "Empire Builder"

    While I was reading an article about Chris Guillebeau's achievement of traveling every country in this world before his 35th Birthday, I stumbled across this sentence
    MH: What do you never leave home without when you’re on the road?

    CG: I’m pretty basic. Everything goes in my Briggs & Riley rollaboard and my Tom Bihn “Empire Builder” laptop bag. In addition to taking my MacBook Air everywhere I go, I also use a paper notebook (shock and awe!) for capturing ideas and making notes.
    Tom Bihn "Empire Builder" Laptop Bag. Wow, it is very unexpected. I somehow first misread it as Brain Bag.

    Enjoy!

      Good eye @weirdguy!

      and circling back around ... in the TB blog, they have an article on Chris's book, The $100 Startup, where he writes about Tom Bihn products:

      Tom's review of The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau - FIELD TRIPS by TOM BIHNFIELD TRIPS by TOM BIHN

      Cheers!

        Wow, I didn't realise Chris Guillebeau is a big part of TB Family. I mean bigger than I initially thought. Lol, this also remind me how people always say the World is actually smaller than many otherwise thought.

        Great find @tpnl. Now, I do really need to try read that book.
        Thanks!

        Add: More great! The book is available at Audible! Added to Wish List. Will get it when my following Credit is available.

          Yup, I read $100 Startup and was totally excited to read about Tom Bihn in the book.
