don't fear death

global freeloading

i have issued myself a challenge - to travel from istanbul to prague and stay in prague for seven months without paying to sleep and get by on less than $15 per day (not counting insurance, textbooks or tuition related costs) - all within the confines of one backpack. I did Peru for almost three weeks with only one book size backpack, so I am not worried about the light travel part. Here is the bag:


i really miss the pack i had before katrina. there are some other goodies i can't find anymore that were among my travel favorties. i had a travel coffee maker and a currency convertor that magellan's no longer carries.
so i am hanging out a lot on Global Freeloaders.

don't tell my mom, she will swear i will stay with an axe murderer!
