What advice do you have for a new backpacker?

Want to try backpacking travel with large travel backpack, or have already bought a plane ticket, and are now ready to start the first long-distance journey in your life with anticipation but anxiety? Don't be afraid! Have a positive and optimistic mood and be grateful for everything you meet on the road. Believe youselves. There will be an unforgettable journey. Before you travel, you can take a look at the following 20 suggestions, which will definitely let you play more at ease.

What advice do you have for a new backpacker?

1. For long-distance travel, carrying a backpack is much more convenient than a rolling back pack or luggage. Don't expect that the roads in all places will be fairly smooth, and it is impossible to have elevators in all places where you live. Double backpacks will make it easier for you to move.
2. Understand the local prices before going out to facilitate financial preparation (remember to bring some reserve funds for emergencies later). Roughly plan the amount of money available every day, and reserve funds are reserved for all situations that you cannot anticipate.
3. Don't be too full in planning your itinerary, give yourself more flexibility time.
4. Bring as little things as possible, don’t pack things in your backpack if you don’t feel sure you need them. For example, if you are not sure whether to bring two or three pants, bring a little less will definitely make you very grateful later.
5. Packing toothbrushes and toothpast in your carry-on baggage will make you feel clean and energetic when you disembark. Long-distance flight is absolutely torture!

6. Remember to spread the money and credit cards. If you encounter a pickpocket, there is still money left to use.
7. When you go to a country with poor security, you can buy an anti-theft bag or hide your money and passport in your clothes.

8. Keep important documents in your carry-on luggage, and make a copy of them in your suitcase so that you have spare documents to use when they are missing.
9. If you have a definite itinerary or a place to stay, remember to leave information to your family or friends in advance to make them more at ease, and you can also make yourself more at ease.
10. Clothes do not need to be complicated and gorgeous, a pair of easy walking shoes is the most important thing. Don't take too many clothes with you. In the end, you will find that just like in your own home, you don't need many clothes. Good shoes are the key to accompany you through this trip.

11. Before departure, search for local cultural customs online. Having a preliminary understanding will make your first self-service travel more at ease. For example, which areas of a certain city are more dangerous, and those gestures are impolite in the local area, so as not to accidentally touch the taboo.
12. Bring some simple stomach medicines and painkillers to avoid physical discomfort in a different place (but don't bring too much). Bringing some stomach medicine will help you through the first few days of adapting.
13. No matter where you go, politeness and smile will bring you beautiful things and people. Don't treat unfamiliar things as threats. Use politeness and smile to get close to others.
14. Stay vigilant, pay attention to your important items on your body, remember to pay attention to people around you when walking on the road.
15. Appreciate different cultures with an open mind and don't be afraid to make new friends. It is inevitable that you will feel nervous and scared on your first trip. Don't criticize first when you see different things, and accept it with a more open attitude.

 16. To travel is to enjoy local food, don't just eat the food you are familiar with. Taste everything while traveling, especially if you don't know what it is? You can ask locals for suggestions. While traveling, eating street food is also a great way to save money.
17. Traveling is to make yourself zero. Any prejudice will only prevent you from seeing the beauty of the world. Don't be prejudiced and refuse to associate with certain people. One of the purposes of travel is to learn to see the world from a different perspective.
18. You can invest in a good camera, if you only have a mobile phone, don't forget to spend a small amount of money to help yourself buy an external wide-angle lens. Your Memory is limited. Capturing people and things through the camera will make your memories clearer. Without a camera, the additional small wide-angle lens is also very practical!
19. You can learn a few local greetings or polite words, which will be very convenient when asking for directions or making friends. The locals will be more than happy to help you when they hear you start a conversation in their language.
20. Even if you are not in your country, you still have to remember to eat healthily. If it is a long-distance trip, don't let yourself eat fast food or dessert every day. Remember to eat fruits and vegetables to help your body stay in good condition.
