Backpacking Around The World: What You Don't Need To Take

Where backpacking is concerned: less is definitely more!

Picture the scene: you’ve just stepped off a ten hour bus ride that you were assured would take 3 hours. You’re hot, you have dust in your eyes, your bottled water is down to the last warm plastic-flavoured drips and you’re craving some food that doesn’t look like a skewered insect. Behold! You spot a hostel gleaming at the end of the lane so you adorn your trusted backpack and head towards that paradise of beds, cool beer and delicious curry. You have 2 choices:

Option A

Your backpack contains at least one of the following: the plug for the plug-less bath in the land of showers, a fleece just in case Asia’s climate takes a historical plummet, a thick jumper based on the same reasoning, a pair of hard core trekking shoes when you’ve been prancing over mountains in your 1 dollar flip flops, a 2.5 kg iron chain and lock (waterproof variety) to protect your backpack in all eventualities. You get the picture. You struggle a few steps but the shouts of the tuk tuk touts prove too tempting for the lift to the hostel, even if you know it’s at the ‘special’ touristica price.


Option B

You carry a simple roll of toilet paper for those doubtless bouts of traveller-tummy, a guide book for some handy advice, spare undies, toothbush and paste, a scarf-it’s multi-purpose, shampoo, cash and passport. The essentials. And you’re away…at the hostel in no time, a cool shower, a clean bed and a cool beer in your hand. You know it makes sense!
