Backpacking is a state of mind that makes you choose the road traveled and broadens your horizon to enjoy a richer and more immersive outdoor experience. Hauling your backpack to unique destinations around the world gives a feeling of independence, freedom, and self-reliability. It’s just an ineffable feeling that you’re in control of what you want to do.
“That’s the difference between backpackers and holidaymakers. The former can’t help but invite hassle whilst the latter pay to escape it.”
