At the HobbyKraze, we love to backpack. Luckily for you, our team of experts has been able to travel the world and experience it in their own ways. Their insights into backpacking will help you take the plunge. Buckle up; it's time to go for a ride!
Backpacking is: “the activity of travelling while carrying your clothes and other things that you need in a backpack, usually not spending very much money and staying in places that are not expensive”.
Backpacking is clearly beneficial. You get to travel, you get to take your things with you, you don’t have to carry too much, you get to see new places, and it won’t burn as much of a hole in your wallet as you think.
You need to pack smart yet light. You’ll have one backpack that you need to be able to fit everything you need for an adventure of backpacking for beginners that will continue until you really miss your mum and your bed back home.
When it comes to traveling, the vast cultural towns of Europe are the largest area in the world to accommodate free travel, meaning your beginner backpacking gear will only need a Schengen Visa, where you can travel anywhere for a 90-day period.
