I’m sure most of you sporty and adventurous peeps out there already have this on their To-Do Lists but I just had to blog about this!
Backpacking is a very spontaneous experience where you may not always get to relax, but definitely have a good time (plus it counts as good exercise!). Sometimes you may have to live in cramped conditions but that’s just part of the experience. Getting to experience beyond vehicles and boats can take you, and living out in the wild away from the noisy monotonous city life.
One of the newest things is urban backpacking. I cannot tell which would be a better experience. It really depends what you’re looking for when you want to go backpacking; A lot of us want to get away from the busy city life and enjoy some of ‘natures goodness’, whereas some of us would love to be on a backpacking sort of tour in and around a city…!
But one things for sure: Backpacking, wherever it may be, is essential. Experiencing something new and completely out of your comfort zone can be more fun that you can ever imagine!
So choose a destination, ask your friends or fam, get shopping and get packing!
