I want to persuade you to go backpacking. Somewhere. Just once. Borrow a pack if you don’t want to invest just yet. You can stay where you like, hostel, campsite, B&B wherever you like.
City break or countryside hike, just be a backpacker for a day, a weekend or hopefully longer.
I have now been round Australia, with quite a big pack, which I still find awesome and unbelievable. I have been around the Greek Islands with a very small pack, carry on only. You can choose any style you like.
These pages may just inspire you a little bit…
Get your pack packed and on your back. Yes it’s called a backpack for a really good reason! Please travel without a car, use a bus or train or boat, talk to other travellers and locals. You will not regret it.
