I rarely travel solo and asked myself recently why I prefer not to.The answer came last week when I had to go to Pangasinan alone where my wife was already waiting for me.I have endured long hours of traveling alone in the past.
I remember during university days,I had to ride the bus alone from Anda to Bayambang where my school is located.It was fun in most cases but at times gloomy and worrying.The country could be an unforgiving place,especially to a student who doesn't have much allowance to spare.That's when I learned that it's comforting to have somebody sit near you when you travel.That somebody now is who I refer to as my wife.
But I can't take my wife anywhere I go.Either due to schedule problems or financial restrictions.In that case,"somebody" has travelled with me recently more than my wife did, NIKE, my travel bag.
Nike has recently found a partner to accompany me---#Crumpler.Yes,I call my stuff their brand names as if it's their first names.
WHY I LOVE MY CRUMPLER Mild Enthusiast
I am using a Crumpler Mild Enthusiast (M) camera bag and I find it perfect for my Nikon dslr camera and my spare lens,Nikkor 55-200mm.There's even extra space for my perfume,hair wax and other stuff.I remember bringing all of the above plus a boxer short and sando.Nagkasya lahat.hehe
With it,I know that my gears are safe.Inside is a cushion which protects my camera from shock should I accidentally drop the bag which is unlikely coz it comes with a 38mm wide strap with buckle and quick release clasp.I could have it strapped on my waist or around my midriff.
For security,the Mild Enthusiast has twin grippers on the photo compartment so that you can lock it.No more worries on pickpockets in crowded areas.And there's another compartment that fits an ipad too!
And you don't have to worry about the rain too!The pack outer is made of water proof materials.Pwedeng sumugod sa shoot kahit maulan! :)
SEVEN STORAGE ZONES
- Twin gripper zippered photo compartment
- Zippered full width photo compartment front pocket
- Three rear photo compartment stuff pockets
- Rear external zippered slip pocket for an iPad
- Elasticised front accessory loops
My Mild Enthusiast has already accompanied my in several places in only a few Months.

I have painted a bad picture of solo travel in my head.It's time to challenge the perception.After all,my future solo travel will not be as alone as I thought.To start with,I have my Crumpler Mild Enthusiast with me. :)
