Setting Up A Goal

Of course, before even starting deciding where to go, you should set up a goal for yourself. What kind of backpacking trip do you want? Do you want some kinds of escapist leisure trip? Or do you want something that is more challenging? Do you prefer walking into a forest? Or do you like to go hiking up on a mountain? This goal helps you decide which places you should visit for your backpacking trip.

Deciding Location

The world is just so vast; there are many amazing places in this whole world that you can explore. Now you decide if you want to go abroad or if you just want to go some places within your country? Or do you even want to explore your own hometown? If you need inspirations, of course, you can just Google it or look it up in any travelling magazines or websites that are available.

Look Up the Trip

Now that you have decided where to go, you need to know how can you reach it. Perhaps if you plan on going for a backpacking trip on some usual places, you do not have to worry too much. But, sometimes you go to places that are just far from nearest resided crowd. There you need to look up the trip. You can check it on Google Maps or Google Earth, or you can buy local maps so you can still wonder where you are after such a long journey.

Get Some Companies

This last thing is truly depending on your travelling style. Do you prefer to go travelling with friends, or do you prefer to go just all by yourself? If you are a lone traveller type, you do not need any companies, but if you like to go backpacking with some friends, getting them as your backpacking trip companies may be a great idea. You can share your lovely moments with your friends.
