Travel Tips for Backpackers
In my opinon, backpacking is one of the most liberating, empowering, courageous, transformative and educational experiences a person can have in their lives.
Sure, travelling on your own can be daunting and at times, really hard. It will push you beyond your comfort zone and cause you to confront some of the toughest parts of yourself, including your greatest insecurities.
But I promise you, what you gain in return is worth much more, and 100% worth it ❤️
