Backpackers live an enormous exciting life. An adventurous spirit yearning to be at different places, to meet new people, to learn about different cultures and way of living. Wanting not to be confined in a place and do routinary things every single day. There are mainly two types of backpackers.

The first one is sort of an occasional backpacker who goes to places when they have free days or vacations. This might just be short trips taken from time to time. Then there’s the full-time backpacker who often travels for a long period of time, that sets him apart from the occasional ones.

The full-time backpackers, had given up something in order to pursue their quest for traveling. It might be their 9 to 5 job or having a business. Some had saved first, quit their jobs and live as backpackers. Always traveling within a budget hence finding places new other people might know of.
