Backpacking expert Andrew Boland has backpacked in some 69 countries, but still remembers what it was like preparing for his first backpacking adventure fifteen years ago. In this book Andrew write about preparing and planning for the trip of a life time. He talks about how to plan your budget for a backpacking adventure, how to keep costs down and talks about some of the costs you may not have thought of before leaving.
Andrew also talks in some detail about the hostelling experience, with tips for surviving hostels and the pros and cons of staying in one.
This is essential reading for the inexperienced or first-time back packer. It will give you an idea of how to start planning, and how to organise your budget so you don’t get left short in the wallet in a foreign country. With 69 countries of experience, Andrew talks about his greatest passion – backpacking.
