    Default Backpacking Tips

    Travelers around the world enjoy seeing the sights and wonders of different places with only a backpack for all the things they need. Because they only have a pack on their backs, the possibilities of new sightseeing and activity adventures are limitless.

    But of course, before you head for a faraway hiking adventure with your backpack, you must make sure that you bring all the things you need to put in your backpack. Below is a checklist that will make your backpacking adventure a pleasant experience.

    - Backpack

    Of course, how can you go for a wild backpacking activity without a backpack! Pick one that is comfortable and fits well on you. A properly fitted backpack is essential. You are going hiking and the last thing you need is a backpack that is gouging into your shoulders. Make sure your is fitted properly.

    - Quick Drying Towel

    Widely available in many stores. You donít want a heavy, damp towel on your backpack, do you?

    - Walking Shoes

    Pick comfortable shoes as you would learn soon enough that walking would be a major part in your backpacking adventure.

    - Underwear and socks

    These go without saying.

    - Long Underwear

    This depends on the season and place where you are traveling. You might also wear your long underwear when you stay in hotels that do not have adequate well-heating systems.

    - Pillow Case

    Pillow case is an essential thing to keep when you stay in backpacker hotels.

    - Sleeping Bag

    When you stay in backpacker hotels. Select a lightweight sleeping bag. Down is the best type of sleeping bag. Yes, they do cost a bit more, but the prices is well worth it. Feathers are very light and you can compress a down into a very small package.

    - Passport

    Donít even think of leaving the country without it.

    - Spy Wallet

    So that you could be able to divide up the money that you have just in case.

    - Day Pack

    Most backpacks have a detachable daypack.

    - Camera

    A digicam may be better, but bulkier and heavier to carry.

    - Journal

    For the writer and chronicler in you.

    - Flip Flops

    Useful when you take a shower.

    - Travelerís Checks

    You can never be too sure with your money.

    - Wet Wipes

    Always come in handy. Easy to carry too.

    - Landry Detergent

    It might prove handy.

    - Space Savers

    - Rain Coat

    Especially if you travel on a rainy season or youíre going to tropical countries like those in Southeast Asia or South America.

    - Lock

    For the safety of your belongings.

    - Band Aids

    Itís better to be prepared than not at all.

    - Travel Guide

    Try picking a comprehensive yet easy-to-carry travel guide.

    - Personal items such as toothpaste, deodorant, soap, and shampoo

    For hygienic purposes.

    - Clothing

    A tip: The night before you leave, check all clothes that you need. Then take only the half. Clothing simply weighs too much. Take only what you can carry at ease.
