When you are travelling with a backpack you need to pack as low as possible. For me, as a man, that’s not a problem, but for my girlfriend…well things are different.
The whole idea of backpacking is for you to travel as light as possible and as cheap as possible. But when you add up luggage after luggage, that changes things.
During our last trip to China, we had to decide what to bring with us and what not. Of course, you need the important things that are essential and then comes the things you think you can not live without but you can, for sure. That’s what I was trying to explain to my girlfriend, who insisted in bringing with her, this Tria 4x device, which is a laser hair removal device. She insisted she needs it for this trip because of some permanent hair removal treatment that she does at home. The device is small, it wouldn’t be a problem to take it if you wouldn’t add the charger, and of course the power plug adapter. That’s a lot of space to take from your backpack, just for you to keep your legs smooth 🙂
When you go backpacking the first thing you must know is you need to pack light. No room for other insignificant things, that you probably never gonna use anyway, because you are to absorbed by the new world you are exploring and by the beauty you will encounter. Every day is a different day, with new amazing experiences and new people. You wouldn’t want to miss any of it, and especially not for smoothing your legs or arms 🙂
Hope all of you, will get to experience some day backpacking. Is not that expensive and if you manage your budget and time correctly you will be able to travel in more and more places.
Just remember, to pack light and to be open minded to enjoy the experience of travelling!
