Adventure travel used to be thought of as backpackers traipsing their way around a county, a continent, or even the world. The challenge was to go as far as possible and survive on as little money and creature comforts as one could endure. In fact, if you weren’t roughing it you were demoted from the status of traveler to tourist. Many backpackers, especially those on the road for long periods, often go off the beaten tack and discover the less touristy attractions. However, although many would treat themselves to say an elephant ride in Thailand or maybe a bungy jump in New Zealand, a lot of the back packers tended to chill out and hang out as they lazily plodded from place to place.
In the 21st century, there is a new breed of traveler. We still have the penny pinching backpackers, but they find they don’t have to pinch those pennies quite as hard as they once did. As a consequence of this extra disposable cash, many are being more adventurous in their travel plans and some find themselves white water rafting in Nepal, snowboarding in Europe, or going on a safari in Africa, and many other adventurous pursuits.
There are people for whom travelling is a big part of their life. The love to go to places where they can relax and forget everything about their ordinary day life.
