Bring Less Stuff

My husband and I are currently backpacking to various countries around the world for the next few years. One thing that can make or break your backpacking experiences is determined on what you bring. I am 100% sure that the best advice to anyone backpacking Europe or anywhere, is to bring less stuff.

It’s that easy!!!

Benefits of bringing less stuff:

  • Enjoy yourself more
  • Have room to bring back some select items
  • Have a lighter load to travel with
  • Less stuff you might loose
  • Less stuff that could be stolen
  • Less stuff to worry about
  • If you really “need” it, you can buy it

Many individuals would love to have a new outfit or accessory to show off, each day, for an entire year. I would suggest taking the opposite approach!

Travel – Bring one shirt – and where it somewhere new each day! It’s like a new outfit everyday, because new people and places have never seen you where it before. Wink

Yes and what will happen if you will need some things, in the middle of nowhere?

You live without it. In fact, you might find that having less with you is light and refreshing.

Oh, and before you go to the middle of nowhere… make sure you have enough toothpaste, new batteries, and other important items for ‘middle of nowhere’ travel.

You will love it Anders!!!
