This is Viktor. He’s a Victorinox Sorbonne backpack. I met Viktor at Bratpack. I had just made the decision to go backpacking in Thailand, and I was antsy to start my preparations for the trip. I thought buying a backpack would be a great start. I chose Victorinox because it’s a brand you hardly see people toting. I’m weird like that. I believe I made a good choice; Viktor and I get along splendidly.
He went with me the first time I traveled alone to Cebu, then went on to join me in Singapore, and on to my first overseas solo travel in Thailand. He also went with me to Bohol. I didn’t bring him with me when I went to Melbourne, but he followed me soon after, accompanying me to Sydney and the Gold Coast.
On my second trip to Australia, I made sure I brought him with me when I flew out of the Philippines. Viktor was with me and my sister’s family when we went to Ballarat, through the Grampians and Horsham. He even went with us to Tasmania. When I decided to stay put in the Philippines this 2008, Viktor supported my decision, joining me in exploring Donsol, Coron, Cebu and Davao. He will join me again in my upcoming trips before the year ends.
