What type of backpacks do most contikiers bring?

14 Jan 2007 Christian asked

I'm doing european encounter in a few days and still haven't decided what type of backpack to bring. Can anyone help? Is there a high chance i'd be pick-pocketed if i brought a normal backpack instead of a side bag

    Just keep valuables hidden deep in the back pack or in your pockets so even if they tried they would not get anything.

    A travel belt is a good place for money, credit cards, and passport.
