Hi, you may ask why "The Broke Backpacker"?
The answer is really simple....I'm really broke but am doing anything in my power to see this world! My names Rebecca, i'm in my 20s and currently finishing/crawling through my masters degree, working an unreliable, albeit, brilliant part time job and planning, what I believe, to be the trip of a lifetime, with my ridiculously adventurous boyfriend (he's about one bottle of coke away from scaling the highest building in the world, with his bare hands, while quoting scenes from obscure horror films).
Our first stop on this trip is to Nepal, where by this biscuit and tea loving creature of comfort, will be boldly taking on the Everest Base Camp trek and Annapurna Circuit. Now anybody that knows me, would tell you that although I do love myself an adventure and have often been found following a river just to find out where it goes, the highest thing I've scaled, is about 6 inches into my heels...so this could be interesting!
Even though I'm really excited about this first leg of the journey, I'm finding it increasingly hard to find information out about these treks aimed towards women who are novice trekkers! All I'm saying is it'd be nice to get some tips, on good underwear, that's prepared to help you out on these 5 hour days So this little blog will just be about the run up to our journey, the journey itself and any tips( as a novice backpacker) that will help anyone with their trip to make it that bit better
