Athens Tees & Auckland Tees - Travel T-Shirts

Did you know how many cities around the world start with the letter A?   The answer is heaps!   Actually I'm not sure exactly as the different websites show different amounts and I've seen some towns listed as cities........I know they are only towns because I've been there!   I guess different people call different things cities, I remember years ago being told that if there was a cathedral in the 'town' then that made it a city, no cathedral - no city!   I'm not sure if that was just another piece of misinformation from my childhood or if it was true - I'd love to hear your thoughts below.

Now back to tees, I was trying to think what places started with the letter A so that I could showcase some of their t-shirts for you and I realized that there's a couple of cities that I have visited that begin with the letter A so let's start with Athens

Athens, is of course in Greece and I love the Greek inspired t-shirt above as I fell in love with Greece when I was in my teens.   I've visited Rhodes, Greece, and Cyprus on various different holidays and fell in love with octopus, not ouzo, the history, the mythology (well these two predated the first visit, but....), the little villages, the people, the prickly pears, the beautiful sun and sea.   Basically I'm surprised that when I left college I ended up half way around the world while one of my college friends ended up living in one of the Greek Isles - I thought it would always be the other way around!

Anyway Athens is a great place to visit if you get the chance, if you don't then just wear the t-shirt!   Here's three Athens tees to choose from -

Of course as I said a friend of mine ended up in Athens while I went halfway around the world - New Zealand.   A large city in New Zealand who likes to think of itself as the capital, but it's not is Auckland!

Auckland is where I landed in my new country half a lifetime ago and is where my brother and his family live now.   It's known as the City of Sails and is the place most of our visitors got their first glimpse of New Zealand from.   If you haven't been to New Zealand you're missing out so hurry up and visit, but in the mean time you could just buy an Auckland t-shirt, start calling people bro and saying 'sweet as' and you're part way there!

I hope you've enjoyed these two different selections of tees - they're a great way of starting off a travel t-shirt collection.   Join me next Thursday for another destination .......or two :D

Angry Birds T-Shirts

Looking for an Angry Birds T-Shirt? Well I have a few for you so let's start looking at them -

Buy This A is for Anger is a pretty good logo for these birds because they are the Angry Birds!

You see the Pigs have stolen their eggs and so they have to destroy the pigs which is where you come in.............if you haven't played Angry Birds before you're probably wondering what I'm going on about.
In the popular game you basically have to catapult the Angry Birds so that they destroy all of the pigs (or monkeys depending on which Angry Birds game you have).

Angry Birds have become huge, the premise of the game is very simple and yet somehow it's touched gamers in a way that similar games such as Crush the Castle have been unable to which has resulted in a range of different Angry Birds merchandise including some awesome Angry Birds t-shirts.

A T-Shirt That Says No!

This is definitely my t-shirt of the day, actually it might be my t-shirt of the month or maybe it just caught me in the right mood, but I found this shirt really funny when I saw it.

To Quote Hamlet Act III, Scene III Athletic Grey T-Shirt
I am personally waiting for someone to ask me a question that I have to say no to as I love the 'Smart Alex' reply.
A big thanks to George Takei for linking to it on Facebook, it's made my morning and hopefully it's made your too.

Guinness T-Shirts

I Love Wearing a Guinness T-Shirt!Guinness T-Shirt
A Guinness t-shirt is my favorite type of Guinness clothing, although I should mention that my hubby prefers to wear a Guinness rugby shirt!
I do have a bias as I love nothing more than to slip into a pair of jeans and pull on a t-shirt, but the Guinness shirts in general seem to hold a huge appeal to a lot of people.

I wonder what Arthur Guinness (the founder of the Guinness empire) would think of all of the Guinness clothing that's worn around the world if he were to be transported into the 21st Century?

Arthur Guinness started brewing Guinness way back in 1759, he first exported it to England in 1769 and in the centuries since then Guinness has been exported around the world even as far away as Australia where it is enjoyed immensely. Guinness must surely be one of Ireland's most well known exports and in recent decades we've seen the Guinness name put to other things besides the creamy stout that made it world famous …
