5 Reasons to try backpacking

Top 5 reasons to pack your bags and go.

  1. It’s not as expensive as you think.

People don’t realise how cheap it can be to travel. The trick is to stay in hostels and be open to taking the cheapest route, not the shortest. Sky Scanner even have ‘cheapest month’ option, where you can set a destination and it will tell you the cheapest times in the year to go!

There really are no excuses!

2. Work abroad. 

Not only does working abroad often fund your travels, but it also gives you an experience that simply traveling wont bring. You learn what it’s like to live in another country and really get to know the culture.

 3.What responsibility? 

If experiencing new cultures is really something that you want to do, then do it! If it’s a long weekend or a round the world trip, it’s important to do things for you. We only have one life, so LIVE IT!

4. The stories you will tell. 

I promise you will have the best party stories, usually starting with ‘this one time in…’

5. ‘We travel not to escape life; but for life not to escape us’ 

I think this quote says it all.
