Back pack around the world?
Its my worst nightmare actually. Maybe its because I’m older now, I don’t know, but even when my friends were doing it after university it didn’t appeal to me.
1 bag with everything I’ll need for a year? 6 months? 3 months? 1 bag isn’t big enough for 3 days!!!
Then there’s all the public transport. Planes, trains and automobiles…no thank you.
The only thing that’s appealing to me about backpacking is the adventure and the amazing places you’d see, the freedom to go where you like…
I will be telling my Little Miss to do it, of course I will, I’ll tell her to put her bag on her back and see the world.
(When she’s mature enough!!)
I’d hate for her to just finish school, go to college then get a job, there’s so much diversity in this world, places that without experiencing them would make her life less complete. And I want her to have a full life. (I’ll save this chat for another blog though!)
I can’t imagine staying in youth hostels every night, they have to be better than camping though. I don’t like camping either, I mean, I’ve been before but I hated it. Sleeping outside, not washing, no electricity, no comfortable place to sit, the bugs and the cold, not my cup of tea at all.
Did you go backpacking around the world? Would you do it? Will you tell your children to?
Do you enjoy camping holidays? What is it about camping you enjoy?
What are your thoughts?
