Is Long-Distance Touring an Elitist Activity for Rich Kids?
Seems to me there are an awful lot of trustafarians doing world tours. Who finances these trips? As a working person myself, it is clear that the average Joe can not stop working for a few years on end and certainly can't afford all this latest-of-the-latest, chique gear and bikes that run into 1000s and 1000s of dollars. So, my question begs an answer: is long-distance touring an elitist activity for rich kids?
