3.Backpacking

What is backpacking?

A backpacker is a person that travels with everything he/she needs in one backpack and most of the time walks to discover the environment while doing all sorts of activities. They spend nights in backpackers hostels where they share rooms with 4-6 other people. There is one kitchen that is shared by all the guests.

Four reasons why tourists backpack:

· Backpacking is a low cost travel. Backpackers often travel to a lot of places and they budget their amount of money used for travel.
· Because they need to cut loose from their everyday life. Travelling on your own lets you literally leave everything behind (stress etc.) and gives you time to rethink your circumstances or future.
· It helps you become comfortable dealing with the unfamiliar (other cultures etc.). You learn to adapt in unfamiliar situations and surroundings.
· Some people go backpacking because they want to learn new things and experience a different lifestyle. Some go because they want to bring home a whole new perspective of life.
