This is content recently deemed as “vintage” by the Startbackpacking.com staff. Like a cave full of aged cheese — some of the stuff is still tantalizing, but some of it stinks.
Our site has been around since 2007! And there is a lot of content. So if you come across an article recommending that you buy a camera with at least 4 megapixels…yeah…it’s probably vintage.
We left this content out there because a lot of the advice is still useful. But a part of the motivation was nefarious and self serving. A few of these pieces are flashbacks, a nice reminder, of times when travelers were sat around hostels talking rather than uploading to Instagram.
