JEFF & JONATHAN DISCUSS BACKPACKING
TRANSCRIPT
Jeff:
Now the world is small and there's this type of people who are
called backpackers, and you've been a backpacker, or you are a
backpacker. What's a backpacker and what do you think of them?
Jonathan: I don't know if I'd go so far as to say I'm a backpacker. I actually
have a bag that rolls on wheels, so I don't know if I fit that
category. When I was younger, then I certainly did go around with
the backpack and considered myself to be a little bit a part of that
community. I wouldn't say I really would consider myself one
anymore because a lot of people that I meet who consider
themselves to be backpackers, they almost have a little bit of an
unusual perception of what they are, and they think somehow
they're different from say tourists, and I meet people who say
these things, like, I'm not a tourist, I'm a traveler, or "I'm not a
tourist, I'm a backpacker" in some way suggesting that they are
above being a tourist in some way, but in the same hand, I'll meet
people who are in some area like say Khao San Road in Bangkok,
which is famous as being a backpacker street, and I meet people
who stay there for two weeks and only talk to other backpackers,
and they end up at the end of their holiday saying how much they
love Thailand, whereas the realty was they never really went
anywhere except perhaps a little bit to a temple or something.
Jeff:
So, are backpackers boys and girls, old people and young people,
Indians and Canadians? Is there any, like, are all backpackers
Americans for example?

Jonathan: Oh, no, actually, I meet very few Americans when I travel
surprisingly. It seems that certain nationalities have a greater
predisposition to travel. I meet as many Canadians as I do
Americans despite the population of the United States being ten
times larger than that of Canada's. I meet a lot of New Zealander's,
whereas their population is comparatively tiny, but they can come
from any place. I've met backpackers from all kinds of different
walks of life, different age groups, different nationalities, but you do
find that the majority of them are young people. Perhaps they're
taking a year off before or after college. Maybe they just want to
see a little bit of the world before they know they're going to be
rooted in one place because perhaps from their field of study they
think that their future is going to be more or less planned out and
they want to get a bit of travel in before theyembark on their
career.
Jeff:
So you have a wheely case, and you're not really a backpacker so
is it OK if I call you a wheely-packer?
Jonathan: I suppose you could call me that, but I'm not sure whether other
people would know that term, and if you don't mind, I'm not going
to refer to myself as a wheely-packer.
Jeff:
OK. Good luck on your next trip.
Jonathan: Thank you.
