12. What kind of luggage should I take?
Do not bring too much luggage. Clothes, for example, can always be bought locally at little cost. As a rule, we do not think you will need more than 12 kg of luggage. This should preferably be packed in an overnight bag or frameless backpack. Solid suitcases are difficult to carry and hard to stow on buses.
13. What can you do to reduce your footprint during the trip?
More and more people are travelling and more and more often the effects of tourism are felt locally. Your journey can also contribute in a positive way! Consider employment that boosts the overall economy, protecting nature through the creation of national parks or UNESCO World Heritage, special encounters with other people and therefore appreciating and learning from other cultures, etc.
We try to reduce the (negative) effects for you as much as possible but what could you do (or not do) during your tour? We are happy to give you some practical tips to help you to be as sustainable as possible during the journey.
