Welcome to the world of Luxury Backpacking!
Budget travel can be a glamorous and stylish affair, and I am here to show you how to do it! With a few top tips and tricks, you’ll be well on your way to adding the ‘luxury’ in ‘luxury backpacking’ without spending more money.
A big hello to new readers, you can read more about me here!
You are probably someone who loves travelling, am I right?Or at least the idea of travelling.
You love some aspects about backpacking, but are rather put off by the idea of leaving behind your home comforts and certainly don’t fancy those dodgy hostels and the chicken buses. Plus, do you really actually need to use a backpack? (a suitcase will do!).
Maybe you feel your backpacking days are behind you. You might be a new mama, or be expecting, but you crave a new adventure nonetheless. The idea of a dorm room makes you shudder now, but the exhilaration of waking up in a new place is what you crave.
You love a little luxury, and dream of having the travel experience you see on so many beautiful Instagram accounts such as this one and this one (thank you for ruining our travel expectation forever!) But you don’t have the money to charter a luxury yacht or fly first class.
You might of heard of the term ‘flashpacking’ or ‘glamping’?
Well if those terms have spoken to you personally in the past, you’ll have a an idea of the kind of travel we promote. Luxury Backpacking is exactly what it says on the tin: it is for everyone who wants the adventure of backpacking but with a touch more luxury and comfort.
