    Other Good Backpacking Websites And Blogs

    Travel Blogs

    Backpacker Advice aims to answer all your questions, but everybody is different and backpacking is certainly a unique and individual experience, so I highly recommend checking out multiple sources for your advice.

    There are many other top backpacking sites & cool travel blogs on the internet. Below, in no particular order, are some of my favourite blogs and sites that helped me before I went off on my travels.

    This site started off as the miscellaneous ramblings of a solo backpacker and has since grown into one of the largest Gap Year blogs on the web. This site is featured on Lonely Planet, STA Travel buzz and various other leading travel websites and blogs.

    Created by backpackers, for backpackers, offers expert advice on travelling, volunteering and working abroad, all tied together with inspirational ideas, opportunities and products.
