You ride till you get to your destination, clicking pictures of beautiful countryside and soaking in the beauty. Oh you didn't realize you are in mountains. About to reach your destination? Start searching for a cottage or a house stay or a hotel on the way to your destination, maybe a km before your main destination. Book a room go up, all fresh up, nah my friend I know you are tired, but this is time for step 4.
Leave your hotel, if you are in a car, walk, if you are on a bike or motorcycle you can use that, because 2 wheelers keep you closer to the nature than a car does. This step is called exploring. Start walking towards the town, enter the town, explore the market, eat something man you must be hungry. Start following the crowd, by crowd I mean locals not tourists. Walk untill you see a path where only a few are going, take that path keep walking till the dead end, or till you find what you are looking for, a secluded beautiful camping fit location, Say eureka out loud. Come back to your hotel check out, come to that camping location if you have a car park it in a public paid parking in the main town, 2 wheelers are friendly for any location you can take it to you camping site. Pitch your tent, stare at that beautiful view and go to sleep.
By the time you wake up it'll be almost night. Ride to the main market of the town, he dinner, grab a beer or two. Met other backpackers while dinner? Share your experience, tell them about your camp location, you can invite them if you want. ( In backpacking community, never keep beautiful camping locations your experiences to yourself, share them with other backpackers) come back to your location. Make a fire, sit by that fire, appreciate the night sky, noises those bugs are making. Play your fav song on your phone read a book if you want. Feeling sleepy? Sleep. Wake up in the morning, don't want to go home? It's totally fine, find another camping location maybe on a different road, or in the next town. Repeat what you did above unless you are satisfied, walk more/ cycle more explore more. Don't sit ideal, keep finding places which are beautiful, which give a mesmerizing view, click pictures, upload them on instagram to tease your friends who said no for this trip.
When you feel that it's enough for this time, turn around, on your way back home think about your experience what you did, appreciate your decision. Appreciate the views you were able to see, which usually regular tourist are never able to experience. Reach home and share your experience with the world by writing a blog.
PS: Be a responsible backpacker, take your trash from your camp site with you and dump it in a dustbin, don't leave it there.
