The Osprey Brand Team, a group of ambassadors reporting from the field at consumer outdoor events across the country as well as reporting on adventures in their own neck of the woods, delivers the latest from new team member Aimee Cebulski who is on a 6-month world travel adventure. She’s taking an Osprey Sojourn 28 with her (from our new Travel Collection). This is her second update coming to you from Amsterdam…
I’ve been on the road on my round-the-world adventure with my boyfriend Jeff for a week now…
We launched the trip with a stop in Brussels to visit my best friend, then a side trip to the Champagne region of France – It’s an awesome place to learn all about Champagne and taste from one of the thousands of houses in the area. You can even go to the granddaddy of them all, Moet & Chandon, home of Dom Perignon!
A quick stop at a rental car location gave us the option to journey further out into the countryside, touring the beaches at Normandy and several key D-Day locations. Traveling back to Lille by car, we activated our Eurail tickets and hit the rails for Amsterdam.
We’re now in Amsterdam, taking in city sights before catching an overnight train tomorrow, bound for Oktoberfest in Munich!
The Osprey Sojourn has served me well up to this point – I used it primarily as a roller bag throughout Brussels and France, since we were mostly traveling by car…Clothes were pretty quick to pack and secure with the interior straps, and the compression straps made the sides very tight and compact, good for navigating the bag around town.
After getting off the train in Amsterdam, I pulled out the back straps and it only took me about one minute to open the flap, tuck the cover, secure the hip belt straps and I was ready to go. The bag was very comfortable walking through downtown Amsterdam to the hotel, a much better choice on narrow streets with more crowds and should serve me well as a backpack style on the overnight train to Munich…
More to come after lots of rounds of Prost! In Germany….
