Backpacking is a great way to travel, especially if budget is a problem. As long as you have a durable backpack, a light tent, a comfortable sleeping bag, and a pair of sturdy hiking boots, you are good to go.
Spain is not only known for bullfighting, flamenco, and that yummy paella but it is also home to many historical sites. Backpacking Spain is a fun experience that you should never miss out on. This country is brimming with a lot of places that you and your friends can visit. They have caves, castles that was built in Moorish times, and famous cathedrals. But before you start your backpacking Spain trip, you should know a few tips to fully enjoy your trip.
First, you need to decide the places where you want to go. You can search on the internet for interesting places to visit in Spain. Write it down on a piece of paper so you won’t forget about it. Include the mode of transportation plus expenses, if possible. Having a ballpark of how much you will have to spend in this romantic country will help you determine the money that you need to bring. Since you are backpacking, you are likely to pitch a tent to spend the night but if you are looking to have a comfortable sleep even just once, you should do some research for hotels that offer affordable accommodations. There are myriad of hotels that are “backpacker-friendly” in terms of their rates. You should also include restaurants where your group can dine in unless, of course, you are planning to bring a portable stove to use on cooking. You don’t need to buy expensive items for your backpacking like the tent or the stove. If you are a beginner, you can start from less expensive gears and then upgrade it as you backpack more.
Overall, backpacking is a fun way to travel especially if you are headed for Spain. It is a low cost travel and there are many things to see and do there. Remember to plan the trip well to ensure that you will have a superb time.
