For me, backpacking around the world has always been a huge passion. I’ve visited tons of different cities and countries in my time and each adventure has always left me with a deep sense of accomplishment and amazement when it is over. Moreover, these journeys have led me to create this website about why I absolutely love backpacking around the world and why you will too if you ever try it.
First and foremost, when backpacking around the world, whether it be alone or with a friend/group of people, one of the best parts of the whole journey is meeting people in hostels in every city that you visit. Not only are they extremely friendly (most of the time) but take the time out of their day to make you feel welcome and provide you with great company and memories. Furthermore, they tell stories that capture what it’s like to live the backpacking life. Basically, the people you meet along the journey are definitely the major factor that makes you want to go back over anything else.
Secondly, another reason why I truly enjoy traveling around the world is that you get to experience and eat food that you’re not used to or have never tried. Most of the time, the food is absolutely amazing, rich in flavor and taste as well as seasoned with only the best spices and blends that the area has to offer. In other words, it’s great to be able to take a break from the normal breakfast, lunch, and dinners that you’re used to at home and indulge in one of a kind foreign food.
Finally, when traveling through some places around the world, it’s easy to get caught up in your surroundings as some of the cities you travel to and see offer some of the best scenic views. From bushy rain forests and gigantic mountains to the rarest species of animals, many places that you may find yourself traveling through will leave you breathless and in awe of what you are seeing.
In conclusion, these are just a few reasons that I can come up with off the top of my head as to why backpacking is one of my favorite past times and why I highly recommend it to anyone who has the time, or the desire to do it.
