Pick Your Backpacking Path and Get Moving!

August 24, 2010

Cape Foulwind, New Zealand

I love lists. I love to see things put in some kind of order so that I can check them off, one at a time, getting a sense of accomplishment with each little tick mark.

I also love to get travel advice from people who have been there and done that, so when Lonely Planet puts a list together for me, I pay attention.

Today I’m reading about their Essential Backpacker Trails. I’m happy to say that I’ve done three of the 10 on their list (#2, 4 and 6), and have plans to do at least one more in the next year (8).

I’m also thankful for the ideas they put in my head. I haven’t thought much about the Trans-Siberian Railway before, but now it’s something I’ll consider for a future adventure.

Even when you know where-ish you want to go sometimes (Paris, Cape Town, Sydney), you still have to answer the question, “But then where?” Being able to put together a route like this is a big help.

What cities have you put together to create your own travel trail?
