Chances are if you’re an experienced traveler you already own a great travel backpack. For those of you planning or about to embark on your adventure – this is for you.
When I first decided to quit my job to travel I knew the first step towards my goal was to start saving money. This left me with an incredible amount of free time – no more big bar tabs, no more fancy dinners, no more Sephora shopping sprees. I figured I should use all of this new-found free time to research my upcoming adventure.
Buying a travel backpack wasn’t something that had even crossed my mind. “I’ll just use my big suitcase with wheels,” I thought to myself. That notion changed very quickly. After reading travel blog after travel blog I realized that I didn’t think this suitcase thing through at all.
Check it – you have cobblestone streets, foreign airports, and never-ending dirty staircases- and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. my rolling monster-of-a-suitcase isn’t going to cut it.
