Publisher's Summary

Who doesn't like to travel? Traveling the world opens new vistas and experiences to all who undertake it. But when roaming abroad, to make the trip more pleasurable and successful, an in-depth knowledge of backpacking allows trekkers to avert mishaps and problems. In this information-packed audiobook, Have Backpack Will Travel, the author provides detailed information in numerous critical areas related to seeing the world as a backpacker. This book is intended for the thousands of (usually) young adults who venture out each year to see the world using their backpacks as suitcases. The book is NOT for those who are interested in hiking trails and looking for tips on camping and hiking those trails. The author draws from many trips abroad, covering the many fine points and concerns that need to be addressed before and during a trip. From obtaining a passport, knowing which shots are required, how and what to pack, to finding your way around, this audiobook embraces particulars any traveler must know.
Further areas include the pros and cons of driving, obtaining traveler's insurance, safety precautions as well as a section on general tips and helpful hints. Using a backpack as a suitcase sets a person apart immediately from those who choose to go the hotel and tour group route. Oftentimes, backpackers are more independent, usually more adventurous and definitely more concerned about watching every dollar spent. Therefore, budgeting and ways to keep spending to a minimum are a constant theme. Whether you are a first time traveler or one who has been abroad on numerous occasions, the information provided can be helpful to you.

Ok, but the information is dated

The author has had some great adventures. This book seems to predate smart phones, so his information is a bit dated.
