Are You a Backpacker?
Quickly, disregard all your previous misconceptions of what it means to be “cool”. Throw away any inclination to resist repeatedly watching this video and embrace what Gabriel and Chafino define as a backpacker.
If it isn’t the catchy guitar riffs or melodious vocals that get you, perhaps the nostalgia will. But seriously, this video represents all that we as adventurers have felt at some time and place. Traveling takes you places and puts you in experiences that are perhaps a little less comfortable or convenient than you would choose. It’s all part of the adventure.
So when your adventures put you in less-than-desirable circumstances, remember to rid yourself of the backpacker blues, and ride on muchacho!
