Can we talk packs?
I've been using my 65L camping pack for travelling abroad for quite some time now but I think it's time to find a dedicated abroad pack. I find 65L just too big and bulky for adventuring abroad so I'm looking for a dedicated pack for that.
I've heard people say anything over 40L is too much while others will go with a 75L. I pack very light. Seven pairs of underwear and socks, a few shirts (1 very nice in case of an event), few shorts and pants (1 very nice in case of an event) and a sweater/jacket depending where I'm going. That and a very small bag with stuff like toothpaste, nail clippers, etc and maybe a few other small things. This lasts me an indefinite amount of time because I tend to wash clothes when I can.
I was hoping you guys could recommend me a good size pack for my needs, keeping in mind I pack light.

In about one month's time, I'll be having a canoe holiday with a couple of friends. The plan is to hire a couple of canoes (2 per person) and spend a week in nature, paddling around a large lake and camping along the way.
I have done quite a bit of kayaking in my life, but never canoeing. Has anyone done anything like this before? Any canoeing advice? Things I should bring, things I should not bring? I'm also not sure how much weight a canoe can hold as opposed to a kayak, so that would be helpful...
This would be in Sweden, in case anyone wonders. So yeah, the mosquito repellent will be the first thing on my list

Well, it's still summer, I have a little extra spending money and I really, really want to take a trip out of the south (I live in NC) for a week next month.
Does anyone know any cities past the Mason-Dixon line that have shelters for people to stay in for free and that have a lot of single digit-priced things to do?
For what I estimate I'm going to have to pay for either my plane or Greyhound ticket, I'll probably have around $500 in spending money, so there doesn't necessarily have to be a lot of fuckin' hobo-cheap things to do for me to consider a city, but just trying to get the most for my money.
Oh, and if there's no shelters, I just want to know a place within the United States or Canada where it'd be relatively safe to backpack. I want adventure!

Is there anyone here that have done the European Voluntary Service (EVS)?
"Work" (more like vacation I'd say, doubt it can be that demanding) in another European country for 2-12 months. EU pays for travel, food, accommodation, pocket money and such so it's basically free.
Or have anyone done anything similar? maybe studied abroad? Feel free to share your stories
Because of my very lacking work experience on my CV, and overall life experience I'm thinking of trying it out.

New to travel, want to go to Austria. On a very low budget, tops 500€, thinking of camping in a tent, only paying for the flight and train there.
But I've heard it's illegal to tent in Austria because the forests and land is privately owned, mostly all of it anyways.
Anyone done this before? Tips and tricks?
Any packing I would need when tenting?
I guess, then general camping thread.
