Traveling Bag

Bag during traveling. Are you guys prefer wheel luggage or backpack? And what is your favourite backpack brand? I have both type of bags. Wheel luggage and backpack. I will use the bags depend on purposes. My first travel bag is Deuter 55+10. Deuter is US brand and well known brand amongst outdoor people. My Deuter already 4 years old now. I always bring my Deuter during traveling. Easy for me to move.

I also bought Deuter daily backpack for my laptop cum working bag. Simple right?? I love my job. No need to spend my money buying new handbag or wearing formal office suit. I've be as I am. This is the real me. Going to the office with collar tshirt at least, jeans and my daily backpack. So simple. Lucky I'm working in private sector. Thank you to my company.

 And now I have one more travel bag. It's a Quicksilver wheel luggage and I use when I'm going offshore. Just throw all my offshore thing inside my luggage. So far I'm happy with it.

Actually I admired NorthFace wheel luggage. I like the design. Very simple and look slim. It's similar to my Quicksilver but I like NorthFace design. I saw one of my friend luggage during offshore. I have no choice in Penang. So I go for Quicksilver.

Yesterday, I use Whatsapp (free sms service between smart phone) with my friend. The only communication I have right now onboard (via wifi). She just came back from solo traveling (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia). Actually, I ask her to buy me Northface for my laptop backpack. Vietnam famous with branded bag including NorthFace and Deuter (they sell both original and gred A imitation). Normally, if they sell around USD7, it's confirm not genuine (I already mention to her). The salesgirl always promote the imitation. For original, need to check the original logo inside the bag. But unfortunately, in Ho Chin Minh City she found all the bad quality imitation. Lucky she not buying me the imitation NortFace :).

Then, she introduce me one more outdoor brand, Quechua. We never heard right??Not famous in Malaysia and we don't have that brand here. Quechua is a Europe brand. It's famous among Europe traveler. During her solo traveler she found most of Europe traveler use Quechua backpack. So, quickly I browse Quechua website. It's like what my friend said. The design pretty cool. You guys can check it out here I like two Quechua backpack design, Symbian Accsess Backpack 60 liter(lady design) and Forclaz 60+15 backpack (men design).

Forclaz 60+15 liter
Then, now I have a problem. How do I buy Symbian backpack?? Online store in UK not provide shipping worldwide. Maybe I need to wait until April next year. They have branch in India and China :). Long time to wait. I want to buy it tomorrow!!!!!!

India-China Journey

India-China journey??It's sound a crazy trip. And I almost screwed up with it. Actually I bought the ticket during Air Asia big promo last May. From Kuala Lumpur to Delhi (RM200 include tax & fuel surcharge) and from Hong Kong to Penang (RM290 include tax and fuel surcharge). The main attraction are to visit Taj Mahal in Agra, India and Great Wall of China in Beijing. This trip will take around 16 days.

I plan to explore The Golden Triangle (Delhi-Jaipur-Agra) since this is my first time traveling in India. But It depend on time also. I need to do more research about the places, timing and also transportation. My idea now is to travel by train. For more information visit . The train there very easy even more better than KTM Malaysia (this from what i read in some travel blogs).
India Map
Then from Agra, I plan to enter Kathmandu, Nepal. This is the best way to transit before cross Tibet. From information it is no problem in Kathmandu. Visitor can apply on arrival visa at their immigration. But I'm screw up at Tibet part. The procedure for visitor in Tibet very strict. *Any idea from bloggers??

The main reason I want to go to Tibet is to see the scenery along the journey by train from Lhasa-Xian. In China I totally travel by train from Lhasa-Xian-Beijing (not a fast train) . Check here for the train route, time and schedule . While in big city traveler can use China bullet train to travel between main city (Beijing-Shanghai-Shenzen). Can check here

China Train Route
This is an overview of my crazy trip on April 2012.

My journey

I will start crash my head and do more research about this trip. Hope I can make it perfectly. If you have any idea or suggestion, please let me know ok. Either by email or in my blog.

Thank You...
