BACKPACKING

BACKPACKING


We enjoy traveling. But mostly, we love to backpack. What's the difference?

Backpacking is an adventurous mentality. We do not spend our days sleeping in hotels and eating only at the hotel restaurant. For us, backpacking is about taking in as much as possible from the city / country you are visiting and doing so on a budget.  Don't confuse this with us saying we hate luxury hotels, and would never stay in an all-inclusive resort - on the contrary. We have stayed in everything from 10-bed hostels in Croatia, to a 5 star hotel in Berlin, to an all-inclusive in Puerto Vallarta.

Typically, however, including around the US, we prefer low budget, hostel style accommodations so we can save money and see as many sites as possible, taste tons of new food, and jump between cities and countries at a reasonable cost. Our purpose through the backpacking lifestyle brand we've developed through imagine backpacking is to provide you with the resources you need to plan your dream backpacking adventure, no matter which budget you're starting out with so you can go on the adventure you've always imagined.

BLOGGING


BLOGGING


the idea of just wondering off to a cafe with a notebook and writing, and seeing where that takes me for a while is just bliss
— J.K. Rowling

Our goal at imagine backpacking is to get first time travellers out into the world. We also want to provide information for travellers who have adventured into neighbouring countries but want to take on that trip to their dream destinations. In addition, we also are here to provide our best tips and tricks to experienced travellers who are always looking to expand their horizon, budget more wisely, and try alternative planning techniques. In all cases, for all travellers, our main objective is to provide our audience with the best budget information so you can plan and execute any backpacking trip on the budget you have. Our trips have ranged from $500 to $8000, and no, our longest trip was not the most expensive. Let us help you explore the world as affordable as possible.

Having been to 30 countries and over 50 cities we have a lot to share.  This will come in the form of:
- our expert opinion on travel tips and reviews of everything travel related from type of accommodation, popular tourist attractions, transportation, and more.
- travel guides from our completed trips,
- travel guides of city spot lights and suggested destinations and activities, and
- some of our favourite stories.

All of our blogs include tips and tricks to planning a successful backpacking trip and overcoming the hurdles experienced along the way.
