Backpacking

TIPS:

  • Plan your trip down to the smallest detail.
  • Secure all necessary travel documents. Carry duplicates in your backpack.
  • Make a thorough check on the state of the places you are going to.
  • Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites are quick and fun alternatives to update your families and friends of your whereabouts.
  • Regularly check for weather updates.
  • Get complete contact information of the place you are staying in. It will come in handy when you find yourself lost.
  • Read up on backpacking experiences to prepare yourself in handling unfortunate situations.
  • Always have loose change of local currency.
  • Make the best out of your experience by tying all things local: cuisine, transportation, accommodation, etc.
  • Plan ahead and prepare.
  • Travel and camp on durable surface.
  • Dispose waste properly.
  • Leave what you find.
  • Minimize campfire impacts.

  • Be considerate of other visitors.

Go places with nothing more than a precise travel plan, the right buddy, and a tough pack
