Always have a solid plan before you goWe all know that having a concrete plan before you go, even for backpackers, will make all the difference in the world. It’s understandable that as a backpacker, you’re more interested in wandering around, but this golden rule is still applicable. This is because you won’t have a travel companion and the planning responsibility solely falls on you. So, here are a few factors you need to take note of during your planning stage:
- Have a set date for your trip and decide on what seasons you’re comfortable backpacking in.
- Familiarise yourself with routes. Luckily, with the internet, you can look at trip reports, online maps, aerial photos, and elevation profiles. This is helpful, especially if you struggle with anxiety as you will be able to prepare yourself, know the routes, and know if there are any seasonal hazards.
- Have an outline of how you are going to travel around the area and what activities you plan on doing. There is a variety of things to do in Tel Aviv. To name a few, you can go to the Tel Aviv museum of art, beaches, Rabin Square, Tel Aviv Port, and their markets.
- Make sure you only pack in what you need. For example, comfortable clothes, shoes, and a warm jacket.
