Traveling Enthusiast Since a Young Age
This book, like many other good Backpacker trip books, has taken a long time to write. Because I did this expedition when I was 59 years old, I came up with the moniker "Backpacking at an Older Age."
Staying in Youth Hostels felt like the greatest option for me because I was on a budget and wanted to explore Australia's wonders from a fresh perspective. It was also a terrific way to meet other Backpackers from various countries. I stayed at Youth Hostels in Tasmania, Victoria, South Australia, the Northern Territory, and Queensland, where I shared rooms and ate meals with other Backpackers from Europe, Asia, South America, South Africa, and even New Zealand. One had to have the experience of engaging with diverse cultures at a level of comprehension that is completely different than being in a four-star hotel.
Exploring Australia's wonders with a group of young Backpackers was not a difficult task for me, but rather a pleasant one that kept me youthful. I went on a lot of trips with these young International Backpackers, and because of my personality, I had no trouble fitting in and finally being accepted as one of them, even though I was very old. I was able to stay fit and healthy while undertaking this type of travel, meet a lot of new people, and see Australia's magnificent countryside from the perspective of a Back Packer.
