Guest Post: A Backpacker Re-Bitten by the Travel Bug

Is there such a thing as an ex-backpacker? The answer is, of course, yes. For some people a gap year is a box to tick; an itch to scratch. They’re travel dabblers, not addicts, and once they’ve done their three-month stint around South East Asia they hang up their backpack, trim their ‘traveller hair’ and slide back into their real world clothes.
