In my last post I provided 7 travel tips for the new backpacker, so for this post I thought I would continue the trend. Having done quite a few hikes now in my three months of travel, I have learnt some tips that should make your hike a lot more enjoyable and much less frustrating.
These tips are outlined below, but first I would like to give you a call to action: if you haven't done much hiking or mountaineering yet, give it a go. Hiking is one of the most rewarding activities you can do, both at home and abroad. It is something that the benefit you get out of it depends on the effort you put into it. Nature is something that is extremely precious and the natural wonders that exist all around the world are absolutely phenomenal. I firmly believe the quote: "The bigger the challenge, the greater the reward".
