Where did you find your backpack?
In a shop in Gracia, Barcelona.

Is this the backpack of your dreams?

No, I actually fell in love with the inner lining, which is more subdued.  I can only wear this when I'm feeling like a kid.

What's your favorite thing to keep in your backpack?
My sock monkey.  Kidding, my bag contents are pretty standard.  And functional.

If you were a backpack, whose back would you live on?
If (and only if) I were a backpack, I'd live on the back of a traveler on Vice Guide to Travel.

Alyssa is a minister of design and is not the owner of the backpack of her dreams.
