Backpacking for the Outdoorsy

If you are not much into outdoor activities, backpacking may not be ideal for you. But if you want to have a totally new experience and you are not afraid of a few mosquito bites, sleeping on tents and taking cold showers, then this is the best way to commune with nature and relax at the same time.

Of course, you shouldn’t expect that there will be too much relaxation as you will be trekking down rough paths and new trails most of time. But the rewards of being outside with nature are unequalled and it is something that you will surely experience with backpacking.

Planning the Trip

If you think that it is good to be spontaneous when it comes to backpacking, then you couldn’t be more wrong. Even seasoned backpackers do not embark on every new journey without their game plans. You may want to make research first, especially if you will be going to an unfamiliar destination.

You need to know how to get fast and direct to your target city without having to pay a lot and spending more time on the journey. Flying is the fastest way, but most airports are located on the outskirts so that means you will need to get a cab to get you to your destination. Going by train could take a little longer but it could also mean you will be dropped off exactly where you want.

Finally, plan for your accommodations – even if you intend to sleep mostly on your tent – you can either find cheap hostels or you need to know where you can safely stay outdoors during your backpacking tour breaks.
