How should you prepare for it?Frode thuenTeacher, Høgskulen på VestlandetÅge PetersonIllustratorMore and more people are living alone and some hope to continue that life for the rest of their lives.

Photo: Shutterstock- I think you will miss an important part of the trip if it is fully planned. At the Nomaden travel shop, just behind the Oslo Palace, travelers work. They have seen that the travel pattern has changed in recent years, especially backpacking trips have become more planned. - We have always been looking forward to it with the training trip, but see that even backpacking trips are more and more planned.
