Next stop: Munich

September 21st, 2009

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….

Features of the Sojourn 28 wheeled convertible pack:

Our StraightJacket™ compression system has always been well-suited to the rigors of travel. Add the High Road™ Chassis to the mix and you’ve got the Sojourn. For those who want to reduce the hoist component of their haul time it can’t be beat. When you do need to carry the Sojourn our superb zip-away suspension is on the ready. You’ll also find foam sidewalls for keeping the load secure, while handy mesh pockets, clothing straps and front panel daisy chains maintain your organization. Colors available: Earth, Charcoal, Pepper. Sojourn Series.

Away We Go!

September 4th, 2009

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, introduces new team member Aimee Cebulski. Aimee is a San Diego County resident about to embark on a 6-month world travel adventure. She’s taking an Osprey Sojourn 28 with her (from our new Travel Collection) and will be documenting her experiences right here. Check back often for her stories and experiences putting the Sojourn through the rigors. Welcome to the team Aimee…

So here we are with less than one week to go until D-Day! 6 months hitting the road, traveling throughout Europe, Africa and SE Asia — We’re both taking a leave of absence from work (we both work for ourselves) and I’ve rented out my house for a year! The storage unit is packed and complete — Jeff’s up at his folks’ condo and gave up his place — I’m still here at my house though there is not much left. Just some furniture to be picked up today and really just the clothes I’ll be taking.

I will be storing my computer and camera accessories at my folks’ to avoid overheating them in the storage unit. I’ll be working from this makeshift desk with a kitchen nook table until departure day…

Also have gathered all the necessary meds, prescription and otherwise, I’ll need on this adventure — I am packing as light as I can but man! Attached is a photo of my bag (Osprey Sojourn 28) that I am using and my clothes — I already have my packing list done and organized. It might change a little, but this is basically it.

Photos attached here of the packing dry run…Keeping it to the bare minimum!

  • 4 t-shirts
  • 4 tank tops
  • 2 long sleeve lightweight t shirts for nighttime/bug repellant
  • 2 pairs of lightweight pants
  • 1 pair of jeans (still debating this)
  • 2 skirts
  • 2 pairs of shorts
  • 2 bathing suits
  • 2 dresses — one nicer/one sundress
  • 1 pair flip flops
  • 1 pair black mary janes — walking shoes
  • 1 pair merrell hiking shoes
  • 1 floppy sun hat
  • 1 baseball hat
  • 1 light windbreaker

That’s pretty much it! It fits easily in the Sojourn so far with lots of room for goodies down the road! Much more to come…
