We have stayed in hostels, and walked miles with our gear to save on taxi costs, but like most things in life, once you get a little older you have an inverse relationship to things you were stoked to do in your youth. When I was 19 and back-packing through Australia and South East Asia, my go-to meal was to make canned tuna taste like steak, now I cook steak in a rental apartment kitchen. We cherish our backpacking past, mostly because it taught us how to become the travelers we are today. Our experience, tips and insight, like how to make a travel budget extend so you can stay in the five star hotel once in a while, are detailed in our blog and travel resources section.
