I Am A Blue Person So It Has To Be BLUE Ransel

Someone told me that one of the most important things for backpacking is the backpack. We, Indonesians called it Ransel.

The first time I went traveling I was using medium-sized luggage. It was quite wide and I didn’t know why, I even though it was big enough, but it still couldn’t carry or fit all my stuffs to inside the luggage. And yeah, I always get stressed to manage everything go inside.

My second backpack, I gave it to someone who I believe need it more than me

Two years ago when I went to Hongkong. It was the last time I used that luggage. If I could turn back time, I really wouldn’t want to use that luggage at that moment. I needed to move around… Hmm… 2 or 3 times… And it was really hard to bring  along the luggage with me. Taking the subways, buses, walking around, pulling around the luggage everywhere It was damn miserable time for me. I was transiting in Bangkok on my way back to my town. Even I didn’t need to carry along Bangkok with that luggage but still, it made a hard time for me.

You should try to use a backpack when you are backpacking” my friend tried to give me advice after I told her my stories.

So the next trip, I tried to use a backpack, from the worst one, I said it worst because right after I stepped my feet not far from my house and it was broken LOL. After many bags that I had tried. There are three bags that I love so much. I gave the two bags to someone who needed them more than me and I used the left one.


The one that was left with me was a very simple one. It looked nice because it was blue. Did I tell you that all the bags I had tried have one common which is the blue color. Yeah! It has to be BLUE. But it’s not only simple and nice, but it really convenient to carry on your back around the city. It’s also had a separate place for dirty clothes and comfortable to put the laptop inside and easy to take out. It wasn’t expensive and not really a famous brand. Just like a saying “quality doesn’t need to be expensive and high brand”. It’s almost 2 years I’ve been carry my blue “Ransel” on my back. And I like it so much. Guess what, happiness is simple.

This should be a review of my blue ransel but it turned out like this. Hope you still enjoy it.
