Where to go on your next holiday: Classic backpacking

Backpacking is how I really started travelling, and it’s still one of my favourite ways to visit a new place on a budget. In line with my previous posts on where to go on your next holiday, I’ve highlighted three classic backpacking trips. Whether you want to go for a few days or months on end, these are great destinations with lots of hostels, public transport and plenty to see and do along the way.
