Want to See a Blue Footed Booby?
Crazy 8 Canucks in the Galapagos
Q. What do eight friends do when they decide they absolutely must see a Blue-footed Booby up close?
A. They book a trip to the Galapagos!!
We are a group of friends, based in Vancouver, who walk every day before stopping for coffee. One morning, a trip to the Galapagos was suggested so we could see the bird with bright blue feet. Bird watching is another of our interests, and we were excited to be travelling to Ecuador! We knew it was going to be really hot there. We were all prepared with our WrapMeCool scarves and wraps to keep us cool in the hot sun and to help us sleep. They were definitely on the packing list.
What an amazing trip! The animals have no fear of people. You can get up close and personal with penguins, flamingos, sea lions, iguanas, tortoises
and yes — the Blue-footed Booby.
The snorkeling was wonderful too. We even found a new use for our WrapMeCool scarves. We used them as bandannas to keep hair out of our eyes and the sun off of our heads.
The Galapagos Islands are unique and exciting, and we had so much fun on our trip. Thanks WrapMeCool for enhancing our enjoyment of the islands.

Hot. Sweating. Flustered. If you’re a busy mum — or even just a busy woman — then these are words that might be familiar to you. My kids like nothing better than to sit on top of me. I don’t know why, or what is so appealing about it, but they love it!
We were excited to receive some WrapMeCool wraps to trial as a family — not just any family, but a family of five who happen to be travelling around Australia in a caravan.
With three little people on board — aged 5, 3 ½ and 2 — it can be pretty hard to stay cool in hot climates. With our WrapMeCools we are instantly cooled wherever we go. We use them at the beach, on our hikes, while we’re in the car, even while we’re sleeping!
The great thing is they can be wet with any water source; beaches, rivers, creeks, even a puddle if that’s all you’ve got!
Hello, I’m Sophie and I live in Australia.
I was diagnosed with secondary progressive MS in 2009 while training for my first half-marathon and working as a Registered Nurse. Like many of us, I find managing heat to be a huge challenge. Heat causes me distress and really saps my energy.
Now I have several wraps in different colours and I laugh because my biggest problem is to choose which one looks best! They are definitely my secret weapon for dealing with the heat because they make the intolerable, tolerable and allow me to get out and enjoy my life with dignity.
