Flashpacking Europe

Flashpacking Europe

So you are getting ready to travel through Europe after graduation and you decide that you will be backpacking. But, the you realize that you will be taking you camera, video camera, laptop, extra battery packs, electronic converters, and more. Without even realizing it, you could already be what is known as a flashpacker, and will be officially flashpacking through Europe instead of the backpacking. You could think of it as backpacking with a twist.

Due to the fact that these days no one can go anywhere without “updating” their status it is almost essential to stay connected regardless of what part of the world we are in. This requires mobile phone usage and connectivity. More often travelers will find hostels and budget accommodations including wifi since the number of flashpackers have dramatically increased over the last couple of years.

There are several different reasons people choose to flashpack and make a drastic change from their old traditional travel gear. Before where travelers were concerned with roughing it in the wild now we all want to be connected to share our stories with our family and friends. We need to upload pictures and video, stay connected with family back home perhaps through the use of skype, and is also the opportunity to have easy access to find out about where you should go and what you should see while you are in your trip. Without the use of technology we would not have the ability to do that.

If you want to stay connected and have a way to share your adventures with your friends and family, but don’t want to carry around everything throughout your trip to Europe, it is always okay to modify only down to the main necessities. Keep in mind, as you are carrying quite a bit of valuables with you, and you always want to stay cautious on trains and buses.
