Packing Tips & Tricks for Travel
Many people like to fantasize about travelling around the world at some point in their life. But, most of them are unable to go beyond fantasizing. There are many reasons for this. The thought of running out of finances along with being on the road in unfamiliar locations is quite terrifying for most people. On the other hand, mankind is paving the way for commercial travel to space. It would require millions of dollars for a single person, and who has that kind of money. But, still the thought that one-day people would be able to go visit the moon and stay there is nothing short of exhilarating.
But, world travel or a trip to the moon is a major commitment, which a majority of people cannot afford. However, what most people can do is visit the wonders of this world, even if just for the weekend. We would suggest The Northern Lights as a starting point, or taking a walk under the midnight sun in the Swedish Lapland. It is a beautiful place and if you think that hiking on a normal trail is awe-inspiring, we would suggest a hike on Mountain Luosavaara in the soft light of the midnight sun. If you are impressed by these but, not really very well equipped to handle the cold and carrying a bag, we would suggest that you practice at home with some gear from Backcountry before starting your trip. Being fit is essential on these excursions.
The most important skill for this type of hike is packing like a pro. Start with a decent backpack, which will distribute the weight evenly. Then prepare a list of the items that you will need on your trip. If camping is involved as well, make sure to choose the appropriate tent and sleeping bags. And of course have some backup for your camera devices; after all, you do want to take some memorable photos back to show the world.
Packing for such a trip can be tough, so we have prepared a detailed infographic about packing tips to make the job easier for you, just read through it and remember to send us a pick or two as a sign of appreciation.
