About Spa Resorts
Luxury Spa Resort
Origin: In 1961, a young New Zealander by the name of John Anderson arrived in London to journey around Europe. With little money and not wanting to travel alone he put a deposit on a minibus and gathered a group of people to travel with. They spent twelve weeks exploring Europe together. At the end of the trip, John found no one wanted to but the mininbus from him so in the spring of 1962 he decided to advertise his Europe trip again. This time, he was able to fit two trips into the Summer season, therefore doubling his business, and Contiki Holidays was “born”. The first tours were all booked by 19-29 year olds so right from the start Contiki was all about youth travel.

Backpacking is believed to have originated from the early 1900's, In 1920, Lloyd F Nelson invented what was known as the camping backpack. Prior, backpackers used what we know in the twenty first century as a knapsack or rucksack which was a bag which looked like a sack with straps to carry their belongings. In 1967, this was further developed by Greg Lowe's invention of an internal or structure for the backpack.
TYPES OF BACKPACKING
1. Traditonal: who believe in the traditonal way of carrying ones essentials and belongings in a pack on their back and relying on hiking, hitching rides and sleeping wherever appropriate at the given time. These backpackers are usually sticking to a budget
