Backpacking: an activity as old as time itself, so to speak.

The Cambridge Dictionary defines backpacking as: “the activity of travelling or going camping while carrying your clothes and other things that you need in a backpack.”

A rite of passage for every individual, I would say. A happening that helps one get a better insight of oneself.

The year is 2019, and we’re all used to the creature comforts that we’ve incorporated into our day to day lives.

But, think of a time when most of those comforts didn’t exist. When people actually had no option to be at one with nature and their immediate surroundings. I’ve read many a times, and even been told that those people lead rather wholesome lives.

We all do not live the lives of ultimate luxury, but one would agree that the lives we live is definitely more opulent than the lives lived maybe two centuries ago.

Here’s an excerpt from a poem, author unknown, which I feel truly captures the spirit of a backpacker:

I want to travel the world
to seek answers to questions I don’t even have yet
to donate my time, helping those who can’t help themselves
to find love in mysterious ways
to finish a hundred books
to do something reckless
to have no responsibilities
to go backpacking
to learn new languages
to write a book
to go sky diving
to do a million more things
to live my own life.”

I’m not saying that you just get up one day, quit your family, friends and job and set forth to destination unknown. All I’m saying is that take some time off from the routine of your life to just be you. Pick a destination, get there and maybe read a few books, maybe do something that you wouldn’t ordinarily do, explore new cultures and cuisines.
