Sydney is not just about the city and if you are looking for something to do after looking at Sydney Harbour Bridge for the umpteen time, here is an activity that won’t take you far but still bring you outdoors for some sunshine.
A short post here on our weekend visit to Kuala Lumpur during the recent National Day break. It was also an opportunity to bring my new Gaston Luga backpack for a field test. I decided to travel light for this trip, so the only heavy items in my bag were my DSLR with a 50mm prime lens and a 24-105mm zoom lens. Of course my other personal belongings took up some space.

While my Flipside camera backpack is a real workhorse for carrying camera gear, sometimes I don’t want to lug a huge backpack on a short trip or carry a bag that yells “Expensive camera gear inside” to anyone who sees it.
