Fallen for Fjällräven

I haven't finished my first stint of long-term travel yet - still two and a half months to go! - but I have already chosen the day bag I'll be taking on my next trip.

I've fallen head over heels for the classic Kånken backpack from Fjällräven, even though I'm a grown woman and it was originally designed for school children back in the late 70s. 




I just love its simple design, its bold colours, its cute little foxy logo. Plus it has two straps and plenty of compartments, perfect for toting around a bottle of water, a camera, money, Tiger Balm, sunscreen, a sarong, guidebook, and other bits and bobs that make up a sightseer's daily cargo.


The trouble is, how on earth would I be able to choose just one colour from the beautiful rainbow available?




The Kånken even has handy extra features like reflective material for the logo patch, a carry handle on top, hardwearing fabric... 


Oh dear. I may have turned into a travel nerd. Get me into some impractical killer stilettos and pass me an unjustifiably tiny clutch bag, stat!


Seriously though, aren't they gorgeous?!
