We are proclaiming: the season of backpacking is open!Let’s start planning your trek to make it the most unforgettable experience.
The world is so huge that it is impossible to see everything even for those who are real globetrotters. However, there are places that impress people to a greater or lesser extent. That is why we mention the places that are the biggest globetrekkers’ passions. The most popular trekking destinations are as follows:
So, go ahead and find the one you would like to go for! You could find the list of great propositions by navigating to the Top 10 Trekking Destinations for Summer.
All right, now you have chosen the destination. Let’s move to the next step. For long trips, like backpacking around the world, packing becomes more of an art. So, let’s see how you should pack your bag.
Here are some useful tips when packing your bag in order to avoid troubles and to make your bag smaller.
If you are going to follow these tips, first, it might seem difficult for you or would change the rules you have had. However, it will make you a more disciplined and efficient traveler.
We always face this problem whilst planning a trip: with whom to do this?
It is obvious that we would like to have a trekker companion, who is going to be quick-witted, experienced, and enduring, who is not lazy and physically weak, and who could overcome obstacles and solve unexpected problems. Certainly, this person should be interesting to spend time with.
So, when choosing a companion, it is very important to have one:
To have more fun and feel safer you can go globe trekking with a group. However, consider that the amount of people should not be too big because it is always hard to deal with a crowd. You travel to spend good time, not to solve others problems, don’t you?
Sometimes travelers face the problem when they can’t find a companion. If you have no friends who would like to accompany you, use the internet. The best decision is to search on travel forums and you will find many like-minded travelers.
The last but not the least when you are preparing for global trekking is food. So, here are several good points to keep in mind.
Final and the most important thing is your safety! If you are planning a backpacking trip, do not forget to consider long-term travel insurance. People say that nothing bad will happen if they are going to be very careful. Unfortunately, experience shows that no matter how careful you are things can go wrong whilst on a trek. The most typical trouble is to be robbed. Especially when it is crowded, you cannot completely control your backpack. Thus, in order not to be robbed:
You likely agree that you feel more relaxed when you don’t constantly worry about something while traveling. So, make sure you are properly insured.
The other thing you should think about is what globetrekking options your policy covers. This, of course, is a matter of choice. You should buy travel insurance in accordance with your own intentions. However, some options could vary depending on the company.
For instance, Globelink recently made an alteration to the cover we provide for trekking. Now all Globelink travel insurance policies will cover you for trekking to altitudes of up to 3500 metres (that’s almost 11,500 feet!), so long as it does not involve technical climbing (for that you would need mountaineering cover). We are the only travel insurer who has provided this level of cover for free. Become one the first who get this great deal!
To sum up all these 5 items let me emphasize one thing: careful preparation is the key to a successful trip. Therefore, pay much attention when preparing for globe trekking. Travel safe, have your backpack comfortable to carry, find nice companions, and get great impressions at all times.
