Backpackers travel light but sometimes can have their own personal luggage. This luggage may not be tangible to others but it surely is as excruciating to carry as the real one. If you are confused as to which personal and intangible luggage we are talking about, then you should know that we are implying the fatigue backpackers face around the world.
Ways to Cope with Fatigue while Travelling
Fatigue can take a toll on your whole trip, if not dealt with time. Everyone plans a backpacking trip after meticulously saving through the whole year or in some cases, years altogether. Imagine killing the whole travel experience on your own, due to exhaustion. Even the best travellers can dread travelling, so do not worry if you have the same feeling. Check out the ways to cope with fatigue and enhance your travel experience.
1. Get in touch with your closed ones
If you have ever been a backpacker hostel then you might have had a whirlwind of new faces as Perth is the melting pot of backpackers from all around the world. This will result in a never-ending socializing spree. But there are going to be days when you would not be so strong on your social game. These are the days when you will be feeling low and would want to be distant from the world.
But don’t bottle up yourself. Call someone who will always be there for you, no matter if it’s your family or best friends, a Face time session or a good chat might be able to uplift your mood and take you back to your roots a little. Such contacts can act as a gentle reminder of your life, waiting back at home.
2. Invest in a little privacy
Living in a hostel is great but there are times when you wish to be left with yourself. Do not feel guilty of this desire, in fact, get yourself some much-deserved private time for a while. With privacy, we do not mean that you go all in and get yourself aloof from the world. Take some time out for yourself and get a private room. There are many hostels which offer a single room on request.
3. Duvet day
Many backpackers in Northbridge want it and we feel, you would too. Take a day off and have an affair with your sheets. People like to achieve the most out of their trip but physical exhaustion is something that you cannot get away with at all. If you do not rest, then you probably will fall sick and waste more than a day in your bed. Our tip? Take a break once in a while and let your body rest and replenish.
4. Indulge in delicious food
When you are on the go, your food is too, and it can make you feel sick after a while. But do it like most of the backpackers in Northbridge! Google the places around and search for some delicious food you can savour. Indulge your taste buds on a thrilling ride of local cuisines and flavours. If you are tired of trying new food, then you can search for some familiar food around. This will help you feel comfortable in a foreign country. There are many who are worried about the flavour but with Australia, you can always be sure that your food will have an authentic taste.
5. Interact with other backpackers
Fellow backpackers can experience the same problems as you, due to this, they are the ‘go-to’ people when you feel low. You can learn a lot from their experience and sometimes their stories can also cheer you up.
Sometimes backpackers can feel lost and feel their whole traveling project is just a letdown. Do not be so hard on yourself and let the other backpackers pep you up. Whenever in doubt, meet some new people and lift up your mood.
