eBook (ePub)
(1 Ratings)
Price: $3.12
Backpacking can be the adventure of a lifetime, but the mainstream guidebooks don’t always cover the day-to-day realities of this liberating form of travel. To date, author and experienced traveler Mark James Vang has explored seventy-two countries with his belongings on his back. Created to educate, inspire, and protect the novice backpacker, Backpacking Made Easier features his best advice for trip planning, dealing with technology on the road, and determining exactly what kind of trip is best for you. He also addresses the often-neglected aspect of the psychology of backpacking, including the impact of coming (and being) home. He delves into the differences between traveling solo and going with others, and his practical advice on keeping your belongings safe on the road, in accommodation or on transport can help derail disaster. A comprehensive guide for modern-day backpackers, Backpacking Made Easier can help you plan and enjoy your next travel experience to the fullest.

    Don't even think about going backpacking until you've read this. A friend recommended it to me as I'm planning a 6 month-long trip, and it's helped me organise all of my planning. It's not a travel guide in the conventional sense - it won't tell you where to go and what to do when you are there: you'll get all of that information elsewhere. Rather, it's an honest, straight-forward A-Z guide on how to plan your trip and what to look out for/think about while you are travelling - all of the little (and big) practical tips that you only get from having spent years backpacking around the world, as the author appears to have done. It's perfect for the novice backpacker, like me, as you'll find it takes all the thinking out of planning the less fun aspects by giving you all the answers up front - which means you have more time to focus on the fun things, like where to go and what to do. I'm sure there's things in there that even the more experienced backpacker would find useful. It's... More > easy-to-read, being well laid out and written in an unfussy, conversational way. Highly recommended and well worth the modest investment.< Less
