Jun 10, 2008
Let me ask you a simple question. Have you ever thought of backpacking? Well, if you have been thinking of the adventure and fun you will have while backpacking, then you are at the right place. This article will offer tell you why you should backpack.

What is backpacking? Backpacking is a term that has historically been used to denote a form of low-cost, independent international travel. Terms such as independent travel and/or budget travel are often used interchangeably with backpacking.

You do not want to travel because no one wants to follow you? Well, don't worry. You can go on your own. Let me tell you why.

Well another way you can backpack is by backpacking alone. You do not need to travel with your friends as many people travel alone. Well, if you aren't confident. Trust me; you will make friends on your journey.

Here's a tip; the easiest way to meet people when traveling is to get involved in activities. This way you will meet new people and be in a shared situation where conversation comes easily. Here's another tip if you're traveling alone; simply strike up conversation with someone with a smile.

Do you have a hectic and busy life? Well, here is a good reason you can get out of it. Take a break; go backpacking. Leave all your problems at home and travel.

Well if you are living behind your boy/girlfriend, here's a tip that I can offer you. You should take a timeout before you leave. Well, if you are in a serious relationship the I suggest that you both should come out with ground rules when you are away.

Backpacking alone is a great step for first timers to take. If you don't want to get lost I think that you should know what you are doing.

How? Well you should do a research on the country or countries that you are going. The next thing that you should note is money. Traveling alone with not so much cash needs can be quite difficult. Next, learn how to manage your cash.

The next reason why you should go backpacking is because it helps you become comfortable dealing with the unfamiliar. Traveling is hard for the first few weeks because you are dealing with constantly unfamiliar situations and surroundings.

It always helps to carry a guide book around so that you can figure your way around. Well, if you are thinking that ou will get home sick trust me, the first week will be difficult but after that, you'll be enjoying your adventure.

Some people go backpacking because they want to learn new things and experience a different lifestyle. Some go because they want to bring home a whole new perspective of life.

In order to do this, you need to gain as much experience and knowledge in your trip. This can be done by taking part and having fun during your trip.

So, there you have it. All the reasons (or excuses) you need to take a break and go backpacking. What are you waiting for? Start packing!
