How many supplies do you REALLY need on your backpacking trip?
Ultra-light backpacking isn’t for everyone, but it does cause us to think about the items we truly need to take with us versus those that we merely want.
This video, filmed in Costa Rica, may show a pack that’s too light for many of us, but the premise of traveling with only the bare essentials is compelling.
There are many different ways to reduce the clutter of existence. For some, ultra-light backpacking and minimalist travel is a good way to begin this journey into simpler living.
The important thing to remember when venturing into a less-is-more lifestyle is that you need to know what you’re doing before you go too light.
Be sure to gain experience with hiking, camping, or whatever else you are doing before taking a minimalist approach.
