For many, there is no other way to truly see the world but to see it on a budget; travelling light and moving when the mood strikes. Before you head off into the sun though, here are a few life hacks to help you on your journey.
Plan trips well in advance so you can go when conditions are right.

Not so much a life hack as it is a life saver thorough planning is important to the success of any backpacking trip. Depending on where you are going and when you are going you should do your research on the weather conditions and seasonal happenings to avoid extreme weather like monsoons and hurricanes.
