Penang on a plate

_DSC0931

Carried my Genesis with me for this whole trip. Adjustable straps could fit clothes for three days and much more including camera, towel, toiletries, water bottle, and other odds and ends.

 The “On A Plate” series serves as a guide for novice and experienced travelers alike, narrating the journey as if it were a three-course-meal. Greenroom136 highlights the attractions available as appetisers (light engaging activities that can be done anytime), main course (an activity that requires a major portion of your time), and dessert (something sweet and memorable to save for the end of your journey).

The Genesis is the featured bag in this article, for more information do visit the product page at http://greenroom136.com/genesis. Version 2.0 of the Genesis is in the works, so do check us regularly for the big announcement!
