Backpacking survival guide.
So whilst this trip hasn’t been the first impulsive, interesting destination venture I have ever attempted, at nearly a year it is definitely the longest. It is also my first time legitimately backpacking it. In the past when I’ve travelled by myself I was with a volunteer group or on a basic tour. Whilst these tours were amazing, and a perfect option for solo travelers they are hardly financially viable for long term trips. So this blog is not about how I literally survived the trip, that comes down to a little bit of luck and a lot of common sense, but about the best tips, tricks and resources I used this trip to afford it, be comfortable, enjoy myself and just make it a whole lot easier.
