A reddit for Backpackers who are traveling around the world. Here you will find anything and everything on the topic, from transport, accommodation, food, health, and gear.
Link flair is now required. Add these to any new posts. There are two categories:
- Travel: Travel Backpacking in urban or semi-urban areas
- Wilderness: Off-grid Hiking or Camping
Rules and posting guidelines:
All posts must be flaired "Wilderness" or "Travel"
Advertisements, low quality blogspam, and self-promotional content will be removed if they make up your only contribution to this subreddit. Acceptable Self-Promotion means at least participating in non-commercial/non-self promotional ways more often than not.
Be courteous and civil. Polite, constructive criticism of ideas is acceptable. Unconstructive criticism of individuals and usage of strong profanity is unacceptable.
If you have any questions, or are unsure whether something is ok to post, feel free to contact the moderators.
