Patagonia mini Mlc is great. There is a larger version that’s good but I like the mini because it can fit under a plane seat

Will you be camping or traveling? Unless you’re camping and hiking from place to place, consider a medium roller bag and a day pack for hikes and weekends

I’ll be hopping between hostels trying to hike as much as possible, would be open to camping if I came across a group that I could join

Rucksack? I got a 65L rucksack from Bach and my husband has a 100L rucksack from Osprey. We bring it everywhere we travel even with kids. Bach is such an amazing brand from Ireland. Very sturdy and superb support. We got our rucksacks from Europe. Fjallraven has very good reviews on their rucksacks too! Go and try them at an outdoor store and add some weight to it and see how it feels on your back and hips.

Dear Bowl Members,

I beleive all the members of this group are in the communication and branding industry - a field where proactive communication and community participation ideally should be the highest but it's not so as of now. Instead, consulting, tech, developer bowls are more active than this bowl.

I request all of you to be proactive and spend 15 minutes a day or every two days to answer the queries posted by members. We can make a difference to someone's life/career with a response.
