The first question many travellers’ may have is this: What is flashpacking?
Well, a key element of flashpacking is the love of independent travel. This is a sensibility obviously carried over from the backpacking movement, which combines the thirst for independent travel with a meagre budget. I think we’d all agree that travelling is about expanding your horizons, opening your mind to new things and looking differently at the world. It’s not about the stuff you carry. If your spirit is the same, the amount of flash with you does not matter.
