“There are a lot of stories waiting for you to live them”
Have you always dream’t of a European adventure of your own but were put off by the expenses involved? Were you always inspired to travel to Europe by movies like ‘Euro Trip’, ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ or ’Queen’ but didn’t know how to do it? Have always wished to experience other cultures, food, music, language and history? Have always loved to make new friends in a foreign land? Wanted to rediscover yourself? Or just wanted to have fun travelling? This is one stop for all your needs. Live your dream, your way.
Why a Backpack trip?
Backpacking nowadays means to carry limited luggage on your back, stay in hostels, interact with locals, walk or cycle around the city, use public transportation and have experiences a normal tourist would never have. Overall it makes your experience much richer than that of a normal tourist. Because it’s the memories that ought to be luxurious; not the hotels.
Because we bring in a slice of Wanderlust, a few Detours, a spoonful of Local Flavours, a pinch of Adventure, a bit of Quirk & a Bucketful of Happiness. Because travelling means to explore, not just sightsee. And we help you do exactly that. We facilitate so that you can experience. And yes there will lot of games, dances and drama along the way.
You’ll find everything here, from culture and fabulous history to outstanding nightlife, mouth-watering food, picturesque villages, and charming atmosphere.
Who is it for?
Travel with your friends. Travel with a group. Travel solo or as a single woman. We’ve travelled as all three, so we know what’s on your mind, your concerns and fears. Apart from great locations, we focus on safety and quality to ensure that your journey is as exciting as the destination.
Where do we stay?
Stay at a property that was once a castle in Germany or another which was once used as a Beatles recording studio. Apart from being safe, hygienic and centrally located, our hostels also have interesting stories- be it about their history or their guests. Listen to your fellow backpacker’s entertaining stories and share with us your own over the many bonfires.
