My friend wants me to go backpacking with her next year in South America or Africa. What would you choose?
We went to Morocco a few years ago and I liked it. But we didn't have to get any special shots and I don't want to go anywhere where I have to get shots that will make me dog sick. Plus I don't want to go where I will have any hassle getting a visa. Since I work in media, I got some side eyes and a bunch of extra questions from customs officials last time I was overseas. I had to repeatedly explain my trip was purely a vacation.
Oh, by backpacking we mean carrying our luggage in backpacks and we fly from city to city staying in hotels. We don't rough it or anything.
Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it.
