Shopping for a Backpacker made easy!

As a backpacker I realised the struggles my family and friends faced when wanting to purchase something to help with my travels. Asking me “What do I need” its very difficult to determine what a person on the go will actually use and bring along on their travels. After a 10 month experience in Mallorca and breaking my suitcase in London, I determined with great ease exactly what a backpacker would need to maximise their travel capacity and minimise their travel weight.

When leaving Mallorca and beginning to pack our suitcases for the journey home, you would not believe how much we acuminated that was of semimetal value and others that was of requirement for our upcoming travels. Leaving clothes, towel’s, equipment and presents from Birthdays, Christmas and New Years behind, we were still over the 20kg limit for our flights home. Chancing it (Thank you nice man at bag drop) we boarded the plane without a problem. Upon landing in London and lugging our luggage around London, my suitcase broke from the numerous stairs on the tube losing its wheels and making our trip to Liverpool Street that bit heavier. Nightmare right? After the dreadful experience of leaving semimetal value behind, creating further costs and shoulder pains we decided to take action and address the problem accordantly. After shopping until I dropped, I found the answer to my families questions. If your little backpacker is missing any of these products, you might just save them the same dramas as we encountered.
