Hey PCVs, I figure some of you can offer some advice --
Do any of you recommend any particular travel backpack (the scenario is a round-the-world trip) for a girl who is not physically active?
If you don't have anything to recommend, did you have any particularly BAD experiences with any backpacks (I would appreciate company name and model name, if you can remember).
Also: does anyone have any recommendations for good travel insurance (covering medical + trip cancellation/interruption) company for a year-long round-the-world trip? I know you guys are covered under the Peace Corps, but maybe you learned about something after your service, beforehand, etc.
Alternatively, does anyone know of any insurance policies I can get JUST for insuring the loss or theft of my high-value electronic items? (Aside from not bringing them altogether, but I find having a laptop is essential when trying to book hostels, find hosts, get flights, etc.)
