We found the experiences of travelers who’d been-there-done-that invaluable during our own trip planning. We also get a lot of questions about the logistics of our trip. In hopes that you can learn from our experience (both the good and the bad!), we’ve compiled some information that we hope will prove a useful resource to people planning their own backpacking or round-the-world trips.
This section will constantly grow and change as we venture forward. Stay tuned! If you have a specific question or suggestion, please contact us.
