Travellers who enjoy the outdoors and want to save a few dollars on their trip should try backpacking around their desired destinations. Not only is it an exciting way to see the world, backpacking also allows people the freedom to explore several destinations on one journey without the hassles of carrying a suitcase around and finding a room at hotels.
If you're planning on a backpacking excursion for your next holiday, you will need a few tools to ensure your safety and comfort. Here are a few travel gadgets that were designed specifically for adventure travel enthusiasts.
It's common for backpackers to stay at a nearby hostel because there are usually rooms available for last-minute stays that tend to cost a fraction of hotel rates. However, hostels aren't always as safe as hotels and require guests be conscious of where they place their valuables.
Solo backpackers in particular should make their safety their main priority. Snagging a private room isn't always possible since you’re usually sharing with other travellers, but a door alarm can save you from worrying about potential thieves as you sleep.
Lightweight door alarms are available that sound off if an intruder attempts to enter. Simply place one in front of your door before you go to bed for some peace of mind.
