BACKPAXTRAVEL A DIFFERENT WAY TO TRAVEL ABROAD
TRAVEL TO NEW PLACES WITH BACKPAXTRAVEL WHILE YOU STAY WITH MYHOSTPITALITY
Some weeks ago we discovered an amazing web www.backpaxtravel.com, where you can discover great places to visit and reviews of travellers.
Inspiring backpackers to venture off the beaten pathways of UK and Europe is popular travel publication Backpax.
What started out as a printed magazine 16 years ago, has now evolved into an uber funky fold-out travel map and newfangled website (www.backpaxtravel.com), brimming with original travel articles, reviews, special deals, competitions, and job vacancies.
Backpackers can pick up the pocket-sized map – pinpointing top-notch accommodation, intrepid tour groups, job agencies, as well as recommending unmissable tourist trails and festivals – at hostels, tourist information centres and language schools across the continent. Since launching the new website and map – printed once a year, every February – Backpax’s founder Sharon Henshall has noticed more backpackers engaging with the brand. “With so much content now available on the internet, we felt it would be best to sadly say goodbye to the magazine, and publish all of our articles online,” she said. “But still staying true to our print roots, we decided to create a map to go alongside the website, giving backpackers something tangible to pick up and keep as a souvenir.”
Backpax was founded by seasoned traveller Sharon in 2000. She set up the magazine after returning from over a decade backpacking the globe, and realised that there weren’t many travel publications out there for those visiting the UK and Europe. So, with her infinite wisdom about life on the road, she set about creating Backpax, informing travellers about the must-sees and dos while travelling the continent. “There are so many hidden gems to be explored outside the main backpacking hot-spots. From our sprawling countrysides to rural towns, secluded beaches to industrious cities – there’s so much out there that backpackers don’t know about. Our aim with Backpax is to really help travellers, and those who are working over here, to get a unique and enriching experience.”
