On this post I’ll talk about how to plan your W Trek with just a daypack by renting tents and sleeping bags along the way.
Doing some pre-trip reading is one of the easiest ways to get more out of your travels. Books have inspired many – if not all – of my travels (my upcoming Turkmenistan trip is partly inspired by an entry in Atlas Obscura on Darvaza gas crater). They’ve also given them a deeper meaning. I get so much, so much, more out of my travels having these stories at the back of my head and seeing them come to live “on site” so to speak.
