The world of backpacking is one that’s hard to describe to those who’ve never done it. It’s a world of no schedules, utter freedom, crazy adventures, new friends around every corner, midnight skinny dipping with total strangers, never ending smiles and doing whatever the hell you want each and every single day. Even if this is your first backpacking trip, as the days turn into weeks, we can guarantee that these are the signs you’ll slowly start noticing as you come to the realization that you’re turning into a REAL BACKPACKER!
