Seeing the Sights
The Quest for Adventure
Taking excursions away from your original plan
is part of what makes backpacking fun. However, when you arrive
in these “unplanned” destinations you might not
know what there is to do or see. Upon arrival, your first
stop, regardless of whether the destination is on your original
travel itinerary or not, should always be the tourist office.
Here you can pickup a free tourist map and ask questions about
what to do or what to see. Tourist maps usually contain all
the vital tourist information. You could get by with just
this. However, a travel reference guide is ideal. Reference
guides provide useful information such as tour fees and the
time required to visit specific sights. There is also a wealth
of information available for free on the internet.
