Travel doesn’t just have to be a means to a holiday; it’s one of the greatest opportunities for personal growth and development a person has at their disposal. But you have to be willing to harness that possibility.

Be brave, and be good. Step outside your comfort zone. Do the things that scare you. And on the days that you feel homesick, burnt out, or wonder why the hell you do what you do, read The Broke Backpacker Manifesto. The world has so many incredible things in store for you.
