Backpacking

Backpacking is the do-it-yourself way to see the world, from packing your belongings in a backpack to heading out on your trip. The sites in this section can help you figure out how to backpack, what to bring, and where to go.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • You don't have to be young to backpack! People of all ages do it.
  • Go to grocery stores and cook your own meals when backpacking. This will save you loads of cash.
  • Backpackers will probably find themselves employing train travel quite a bit as it's an easy, safe, and inexpensive way to move between many destinations.
  • Similarly, backpackers should plan to stay at hostels. They're convenient, cheap, ubiquitous, and good places for making friends.
