What’s in My Rucksack

I’m not a veteran traveller, I do travel a bit, but all of it is around Scotland, from Glasgow to Aberdeen to Peebles. I do however carry a rucksack that would allow me to spend some time in a place if I was delayed or had to get somewhere quick. The rucksack itself is from, no surprise if you know me Amazon as is most of the items in it. It’s the AmazonBasics Classic Backpack in red, I love the look of it and how plain it seems.
