With the world gone topsy-turvy due to the pandemic that is COVID-19, leisure travel is still not allowed in almost every part of the world. All we can do at the moment is to remember the good old days – times when we are free to travel. Even better than remembering is the hope that we’ll all be able to go outside again with no restrictions, hopefully, in a year or two’s time.

I solo backpacked for 4 years from Southeast Asia, Europe, Africa, to South America. It’s the best year of my life. I’ve met so many amazing people, I’ve grown so much on the road and understood myself more.

If there’s one piece of advice that I’ll give to anyone, it’s definitely to take a solo trip. It doesn’t have to last months, a few weeks is enough to get to know yourself, think quietly, and meet people from all over the world.

To travel the world is to learn new things about yourself, about the world. Here is a compilation of backpacking quotes to get you motivated via @quotesgasm
