My Synapse went to Ecuador
I went too...and we spent a week hiking in nature reserves. No, I didn't take a single picture of the lovely Indigo Synapse that accompanied me everywhere, but thought you might enjoy a few pictures of beautiful tropical birds. I traveled with the Synapse as gear bag/personal item and, forgive the heresy, the RedOxx Sunchaser (19 x 9 x 9) for my clothes, second pair of lightweight hiking boots, and the 4-pound Birds of Ecuador book. When I need to carry less gear (Synapse carried binoculars, two cameras, etc.), I travel with the Sunchaser and a Small Cafe Bag.
