Backpacker's Ticket To The World
Backpacking is a way to see the world in all it's natural beauty. It gives you the chance to mingle with the locals, experience the culture up close and taste the country from a unique point of view.
Backpacking is a leap of faith. No matter how much research you do before you set off, it is unlikely the countries you visit will be anything like you imagined. Pictures and descriptions can tell you what it is like and how to prepare before you get there, but you will always be pleasantly surprised. This is the beauty of backpacking, you get to actually ‘discover’ the countries for yourself, explore them, uncover the history and then interpret them in your own way. No book or website could ever do this.
If you are contemplating going backpacking but not completely convinced, then take it from the people who have been there, it’s an unmissable experience. Once you have been backpacking it will be in your blood forever, you will have a lifetime of happy memories and stories to tell your friends and family. The beauty of backpacking is that you won’t need a small fortune to do it. In fact the biggest cost will be the flights. Backpacking is accessible to all sorts of people so don’t be put off thinking it’s an activity for the better off.
