Date a Girl who Backpacks (Travels)

Date a Girl who Backpacks (Travels)

Since its been an article that I feel close to my heart. I've decide to also write an article about it, following the flow and sharing my experiences.

Date a Girl who Backpacks (Travels). Date a girl who rather save up for weekend trips or 3rd world countries rather than only luxuries countries out there for their branded handbags and what-not. Of course, its also once in a while that they want to get pampered in those countries. But that lies not her priorities. She may just grab whatever is comfortable to wear and has no make-up on her face, but lies a mind that can take your places and an open heart who does her best to accept you for who you are, as long as it does not overstep her beliefs and principles.

Date a Girl who Backpacks (Travels). You'll recognize her by the bagpack she always carries. On it is the collection of anything related from the countries she traveled to. It could be badges, tags, bus tickets, photos, the messages from friends met in hostels and more. And in the bag, a roll of toilet paper, a box of biscuits, a bar of chocolate, a bottle of water which are essential for survival - just in case her daring adventure lands her in a place of unknown. And her most precious possession: a zip lock bag which contains her handphone and passport. So people at least know who she is when 'found'

Yes, a girl who travels and knows that any moment of time could be her last, but to enjoy the moments as if it is so. Trekking through unknown forest trying to find her way from point to point. Trapped up on a mountain with no transport to ferry her down. Hitch-hiking along a deserted roadway. Clambering on the top of the bus clinging onto the luggage rack for her life down the narrow mountains. This is just the tip of the iceberg. For all this, she thanks God for bringing her safely home each time. Hence, Nothing much takes her by surprise, she understands that such things are part of life and it cannot always be smooth sailing. But that you need to handle the situation now and then and learn from it. She is dependable and will ride through difficult times with you - as long you also put in effort.
