7 Essentials to carry in a backpacker’s travel bag

Travelloto - A Wanderlust's Diary

Any traveler or tourist would fall in either of the two categories characterized by following traits –

– the well planned trip taker planning each and every hour of the journey to be taken and getting the travel bag stuffed well in advance of the travel hour

– the instinctive traveler (much like me) where you are mostly a journey taker in a suddenly planned trip and dont pack your bags till the last moment

Whichever kind you fall into, there is always a ruckus while planning what to take in your travel bag or precisely what stuff not to miss definitely. From my experience i decided to pen down a list of most essential ones. Here we go

1.) Bare minimum clothes – The concept of bare minimum clothes in your travel bag simply put is the least of the clothes (your Tees, Shirt or Pants etc) that you…

Jadi “Backpacker”? Yuk…!

Next stop, Bali.

nomadstretch

On the 11th of september I said goodbye to the amazing country that is Australia, my home for the past year and eight months, and got on a flight to Bali.

I bought my visa on arrival ($25 US) and then waited fifteen minutes for the guy at the immigration desk to stamp my passport. I had read many complaints about corruption at this airport, and now I was experiencing it for myself.

Apparently a slightly smudged Australian stamp makes your passport “no good” in Bali, and requires lots of flicking through the pages with a thumb, which, if he did that for too long, would do even more damage to the passport to be honest. And this is done while repeating “you help me and I’ll help you.” So what did I do? Just stood, kept quiet, and just kept switching between looking at him and the other hundred-plus…

I can’t complain, Brighton is defiantly not a bad place to get stuck in the mud, so to speak, it’s a town full of quirks, secret nooks and crannys, it’s eclectic, buzzing and full of life, art, music and culture. In fact I’m considering making it my permanent base for the next 12 months, while I save £, and plan my 2013 European adventures!

Alas, I don’t plan on giving up the travels all together, I plan on making as many, of what i can now only refer to as micro-trips (or weekend trips) across the UK as I can. In the past month I…
