PsychoTraveller hits on some great essentials you’ll need in the way of mentality and gear in order to have the best time while traveling.
Rather than reiterating everything she just said in the video, I’ll second the need for a good pair of hiking shoes. In fact a pair of low-cut hiking boots are much better if you plan on doing any mountaineering in your travels. You can look for a good brand at a discount store. However, you really do get what you pay for with shoes and boots and I don’t think it makes any sense to cheap out and then end up buying 3 pair a year — that’s not saving and generally the cheap footwear isn’t very comfy either. I’m a bit partial to Merrell footwear, but there are plenty of good brands to choose from.
