When you search for information online what you need to do before a backpacking adventure, you probably go on dozens of blogs and you'll find a variety of conflicting information. Why? Because everyone will share their own and only perspective. If they found something useful, they'll recommend it, if they found something a drag, they won't recommend it.

The true adventure during a few months to few years backpacking is the inner journey. It wouldn't matter what you'll have in your bag when you find yourself becoming a different person.
