A handy site to help backpackers out
There's also a section on responsible travel, where they remind you that you're an ambassador of your country and by behaving in a respectful way to locals and observing their customs, you'll get a lot more out of your trip and you won't disgrace your own homeland.
In the site's travel section, information regarding getting around your chosen destination is provided. If, for example, you happened to be in America, by clicking on the relevant tab a whole load of options for bussing it across the country are thrown up - although they do highly recommend Greyhound, which takes you to 3,700 locations apparently - and offers flexible fare options as well as its own cafeterias and gift shops along the way.
If you can't find everything you need on that site, there are others you can check out - like thebackpacker.com, which offers equipment reviews as well as forums so you can chat to other like-minded travellers.
