Penang is famous for its street art but we didn't go out of our way looking for it. Nevertheless we still found lots of them while walking around, and a particularly nice collection in the Hin Bus Depot - a hipster enclave of cafes, shops and open public space. ···
I've never been quite so particular about travelling in the best or most comfortable gear, but over the years I've come to realise the importance of quality over quantity - fewer better. Too big a tote and you tend to lug too much around; too small a sling and you inevitably omit some essentials. Same principle for walking shoes, sunglasses, cap and clothes you can move comfortably in. I think I'm getting close to my perfect formula though... One trip at a time.
