Osprey Fairview review: my honest experience with the Osprey Fairview 70L backpack

Osprey Fairview review: my honest experience with the Osprey Fairview 70L backpack

I’m not traditionally a backpacker. Everywhere I’ve gone in the past, I had done so with a trusty suitcase. But as I went backpacking through Asia for two months, I figured I should listen to the advice of those around me and buy a good backpack. I knew I couldn’t just go out and get one. I needed one that specifically fit my (digital nomad) lifestyle, my body, and that could zip open at the front. So I did my research and after some testing I bought the Osprey Fairview 70L Backpack. I’ve decided to write a lengthy and honest review about the pros and cons and comfort of the Osprey Fairview backpack range. If you’re wondering if the Osprey Fairview backpack is perfect for you, check out my Osprey Fairview review.

Balkans itinerary: the ultimate guide to a 3 week road trip

Balkans itinerary: the ultimate guide to a 3 week road trip

A while ago, I received an email from a reader: asking if I could share my route for the Balkans. That’s when I realised that though I’ve posted a lot about that trip, I’ve never actually shared my itinerary for the Balkans. Which is too bad, because more people might find it useful. The Balkans is such a beautiful, diverse region, that I highly recommend visiting! It’s still one of my favorite trips ever.

In the meanwhile, it has been two years since my visit, so the details of our trip and how long we stayed where are slowly starting to become hazy. However, I did my best to share our Balkan road trip itinerary anyway. 

How to prepare for an Around the World trip: our checklist

How to prepare for an Around the World trip: our checklist

Now that we are well on our way on our trip, I thought it would be fun to show you our world trip preparations. It’s actually quite funny how the weeks leading up to our departure went: one moment I got panic attacks when I saw how much still needed to be done, the other moment I thought: there’s not much left to do. Over the exact same to do-list. Perspective, eh?

Roughly, there are just three parts of preparation for a big trip: all the administrative stuff, the move, and the actual journey (and planning). Being the control freak that I am, I make checklists of everything, and it feels great when I get to check so many things off my list. Let me take you through the preparation we went through when planning our world trip. Hopefully this checklist will be helpful to you for your world trip preparations :)
