Buy A Travel Backpack

If you are looking to go off travelling around the world, one of the most important things that you will need to consider is the type of travel luggage you are going to invest in.

The big question that you will have to ask yourself is:

What Sort Of Travel Bag Should I Take Travelling?

There are lots of different types of luggage that you can choose from but this can be narrowed down to two main styles.

You can choose to buy a rucksack or you could choose to buy a travel bag with wheels.

Buying A Rucksack To Take On Your Travels

There are lots of benefits to buying a rucksack if you are going to take an extended holiday or if you are going on a gap year adventure.

There are lots of different sizes that you can choose from but the main advantage of this sort of baggage is that you can carry it on your back.

The benefit means that you are able to keep both your hands free in order to either hold your guide book or to hold your map.

You can choose to buy a rucksack that is either top loading or one that you can lay on its side and pack like a suitcase.

If you know that you are going to be doing a lot of walking then you may want to have a bag that you can carry on your back.

This is one of the easiest ways to carry a certain amount of weight.

Also if you are walking over uneven surfaces this would be the better solution instead of trying to drag a travel bag with wheels over stony paths, sandy walk ways or gravely lanes.

I hope to be off on my travels to Latin America so I am trying to decide what the best option for me is. 

I am not sure if I want to carry something that I will have to drag along uneven surfaces.  On the other hand I don’t know if I want to put so much pressure on my back. 

Whatever bag you choose, make sure that you are completely happy with it so that you can concentrate all your energy on the destinations that you are planning to visit.

Happy Travels!
