Interrail 2013 First Stop Denmark

Interrail 2013

It’s an amazing feeling to carry everything you need in your backpack and then go travel the world. When I was young I brought my mattress and sleeping bag and slept anywhere and anytime.

Storage area 1 026

Practically finished and ready to reveal I started this project in April 2010 with a declaration of war on procrastination. Well, the race was a bit closer than I had hoped, but at least I got the area from looking like the picture on the left to the picture on the right, so who cares that it took 6 months instead of 3 weeks?
