Travel Essentials: Chris Farmer

Chris Farmer is currently in Europe and even though he got hurt at Summerclash he is still joining everyone at Roskilde Festival, starting tomorrow in beautiful Denmark. Before he left for his 3 weeks euro-trip we asked him to tell us a little about is personal travel essentials. This is how the FA℞M is doing it.

What’s your destination this time and how long you’re on the road?
Berlin for Summerclash, Copenhagen for the streets, and then to Roskilde. Total duration, 22 days.

What’s the one item you wish you would (but you don’t) have for your travels?

Favorite airport?
Definitely not the Denver airport, haha. Never really thought about that one, I’m usually in a bit of a haze while traveling, flight anxiety through the roof!

Your trick to beat jet lag?
If I only had that answer, haha. Never been able to beat it.

Any travel tips/suggestions?
Roll with the flow, don’t fight the current.

Roll or fold clothes?
