Over the past years, backpacking has evolved as a major trend in tourism. More and more young, but also older people enjoy packing their backpack and go on an adventure. The differences between “normal” travelling and backpacking are lower costs, different accommodation (mostly hostels or camping) and the chance to connect more with locals and other travellers. Personally, I enjoy backpacking more than other forms of travelling and the main reason for that is that I can sleep in hostels. Hostels are the place where backpackers meet other backpackers from all over the world, a peaceful place where you can relax as well as party, and where you get inspiration for your next travels. Therefore, I wanted to introduce you to the amazing hostels that are included in EcoColors backpacking trip!
