We're Loïs (Frenchie) and Veerle (Dutchie). We met three summers ago in France, where both of us were working to save some money for a big trip to Asia. Feeling a good connection and vibe, we decided to meet up again in Sri Lanka. This is where the journey began...
It started with a big adventure 🌴
In the breathtaking haven of Hirikitiya, Sri Lanka, we stumbled upon the epitome of beach bliss. Riding the waves, we found solace and adventure, while forging an unbreakable bond with a rad local family. Their son, our kindred spirit, became an inseparable amigo. Cruising the coast in his TukTuk, we carved out epic memories that still give us a rush. And that's when the seed of an idea sprouted – to unleash the ultimate beach-style longsleeves and tees upon the world!
After soaking up the vibrant vibes of India, we jetted off to the electrifying realm of Thailand. Our fearless leader, Loïs, had already laid down roots in Bangkok during a previous expedition. He had made some Thai homies who were itching to reunite. Like a cosmic invitation, we were promptly summoned to join our buddy's family on a wild vacation. Enter "Songkran," the Thai New Year extravaganza – a wild water war like no other. Nestled in a remote Thai outpost, we brought the tourist element to uncharted territory. Language barriers be damned, we forged unforgettable connections and reveled in the good times.
Picture this: us, basking in the sun, during countless pool sessions. Amidst the splashes and laughter, we stumbled upon a golden Thai gem – the word SUAY. In the land of smiles, SUAY signifies pure beauty in every sense. From killer weather to stylin' outfits to nailing that perfect poolside shot, SUAY embodies it all.
