Begpackers-Why Do Some People Hate Them? Plus Passport And Visa Advice

Recently I’ve noticed more negative tweets and other posts on social media denouncing begpackers. In case you didn’t know, a begpacker is basically a backpacker that is soliciting for funds through panhandling, busking, or selling postcards in order to continue with their travels. I personally have no issues with this as long as noone is being harmed or exploited in the process but their lately there seems to be some open resentment towards this movement. Quick discussion on that then some passport, visa, and other tips in this episode of the podcast.
