Travel bags, a suitcase, a backpack are made of granite blocks similar in shape. They are tightened with metal stripes, stylized under the straps. This makes it possible to perceive a pile of stones as a suitcase-bag accumulation of a tourist. On the bags there is a beach parasolka, a cap and sound laces, and viscous tags for metal. On one of them, the Colorado potato beetle is roaring. The axis of the beetle is to speak about those that have a tourist monument. On the right is what you want to name the best Colorado beetles for the masses in the Lithuanian season and to live with the great number of products.
