Fantasia

I want to go buy a super backpack, that i can carry on my back, take on a plane, push under a train seat, and still be able to pack all the things i love and could ever possibly need.
I want to pack that backpack, and head off into the world where i need no money and can barter away through my travels. I'll land in NY in the autumn then on to central america and hitch boat rides to all those endless islands, then i'd land in Panama, and walk/drive from there onto all that is worth seeing in latin america, plane to Australia, see if New Zealand is really that beautiful, go to the Maldives before they drown, pass though Tibet and then end up back in Europe. Experience Croatia before it booms, spend more time in Italy, walk the spanish coast and go back to Cairo via the saharan dessert; Morocco, Tunisia and all that endless sand.

Where do they sell those backpacks?

When I was a child they showed this cartoon called 'Sports Billy' where he had a similar sort of bag. He would take out anything from that bag and it would enlarge, a boat, a car, a tennis racket.. I'm reminded by that thought through your post really.. I remember how great it felt to even think that such a bag existed..

Unfortunately, I learnt long ago that no such bags exist.. still a wonderful thought..
