I'm planning on going on a 4 month trip travelling through India, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia and America.
I'm worried about carrying around a backpack the whole time, dragging a suitcase seems easier, but does anyone know if there's any particular advantage in taking a backpack over a suitcase?
Please offer any advice if you can
Next time I'll use the search!
Thanks very much!
Ah, that just takes too long!
Backpack all the way i say!!!!suitcases are far too much hassle to haul around!!!!
I was the instigator of the previous post on this subject. I ended up investing about £50 in a 70litre backpack which has a detachable 18liotre bonus section which you can use as hand luggae or readjust so it straps around your front. It also has side handles, so can be carried like a suitcase instead, and also opens long the sides rather than just at the top. It looks like a pretty decent piece of kit, but I haven't put it into use yet. The big trip begins this Thursday...
