You, a bag and the world at your feet. The adventure of a lifetime awaits. No matter where you’re trekking off to, these few simple measures will ensure a safe, savvy trip 1. The bag While backpacking is all about thrifty travel, the one thing you shouldn’t stinge on is your bag. The key to choosing one that’s right for you comes down to comfort – usually, unless you’re doing heavy lifting, it shouldn’t be more than 4500 CUI (cubic inches). Also, buy yours from a reputable maker – shoddy workmanship or material will tear only too easily. (Normally I'm using 55 litter Deuter backpack plus 22 liter Deuter for daysack) 2. Packing essentials Every traveler should have these: • Flip flops: A must-have for use in those communal showers • Pillowcases • Extra wallet: Pickpockets are in

Tourist or traveler? The debate rages on. Let me start with an example. The scene: a gift shop at the Jewish Museum in Berlin. It’s almost completely free of tacky souvenirs, and instead full of meaningful books, DVDs and other informative materials about Jewish culture and history, which befit this truly fascinating museum. As I stand near the counter browsing a shelf of novels, an English-speaking tourist runs in. “Excuse me, where’s the book that everybody buys?” she shouts in the general direction of the two shop assistants, who are both serving customers.

•The little plastic containers that camera film comes in are excellent for storing things. The best use I found for them was salt and pepper holders. • If you're a drinker, make sure you have your own wine/bottle opener! Sometimes you can get them as key rings. You'll never find one in a hostel cause they're constantly stolen.• Always travel with a pack of cards. It's the best way to make friends and a lifesaver if you're staying in a hostel with no TV.• A sarong has many uses. It acts as a tablecloth during a picnic. A wrap around if you've unfortunately managed to fry your legs to a crunchy crusty crisp in the midday sun. A belt that keeps your trousers up.

Look closely, and you'll notice that some of the most colourful indie-traveller hangouts in the world -Panajachel in Guatemala, Dali in China , Dahab in Egypt - have much in common. Granted, these place retain their own geographical and cultural distinction, but each location shares a laid-back predilection for catering to aesthic and recreational needs of Western budget travellers. Thus, keeping in mind that much of our time as travellers involes moving in and out of Trourist Zones, here is my tip sheet to help you make sense of things: *Learn to identify Tourist Zones - There's nothing necessarily wrong with a Tourist Zone, but it helps to know when you're in one, a it will affect how you rel...
