You may have noticed this cream colored fedora arrive in our photos a few weeks ago when we first arrived in Greece. It was a reluctant purchase and not very expensive but I probably carried the hat around as much as I wore it. It doesn't block the sun all that well as the brim is not very big and you have to constantly shape it or it turns into a mess. You can't pack it in a back because it's made of paper and it will crunch and become unwearable. After carrying it all over Greece, Egypt, and Turkey i've decided I need to put the hat down. I placed it on a railing inside the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul took a photo and walked away. The hat was claimed by some lucky traveler, because it was gone by the time we got back. I've replaced the hat with a cap that's much more travel friendly and can be stuffed into a suitcase and holds it's shape even when abused.
