SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT: A Documentary About Backpacking | How To Travel Alone - Solo Travel Stories

SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT is a documentary from Toïne Haverkamp that explores what backpacking is, during a nine-month search through well and lesser-known backpack spots in Asia.

The documentary gives a glimpse into the backpack scene. Shown from the perspective of a traveller who has never been outside his own continent.

During the trip the viewer is taken by other backpackers who will show all aspects of what backpacking has to offer.

You will see stories and images that we often see on Instagram, but more importantly, all the stories behind those enviable moments that we never hear.

For backpackers it will evoke a sense of recognition, and for the stay-at-homers an unique glimpse into the backpack scene.

The documentary is strongly music driven by the specially created soundtrack by the young producers Nikos & Nick (Rotterdam, the Netherlands) and (Utrecht, the Netherlands).

✍️Directors note✍️:
Years ago more and more people in my environment decided to start backpacking. Besides the fact that I saw nice pictures on social media and heard all the fun stories, I hardly had an idea what backpacking was.

I became more and more curious why people like to leave everything behind and travel around the world, while sleeping in dorms, and trying to spend as little money as they possibly can. I couldn’t find much about this topic on the internet, besides travel guides or documentaries about personal quests. So I decided to go on research myself and go for nine months to Asia, to discover what makes backpacking so interesting for people that it becomes a way of life.

When I started years ago on my backpack documentary project SAME SAME BUT DIFFERENT, I had one goal. My goal was to inspire as much people as possible to step outside their comfort zone and start discovering. With more than 250 people coming to the premiere last year this was the first step. One year later I hope to reach and inspire more people with this public release.

Thank you for watching, your support and keep exploring!

Coronavirus tips: How to grocery shop safely during COVID-19 pandemic

Editor's Note: On Friday, April 3, 2020, President Donald Trump said the CDC now recommends that people wear non-medical cloth face coverings, when entering public spaces such as grocery stores. Here's how to make a mask without sewing:

One of the few reasons we should leave the house during this time of social distancing is to buy groceries. Shopping can feel like a daunting task if you have anxiety about catching the virus from other shoppers or from simply picking up a can of soup and placing it in your cart. There are steps you can take to shop as safely as possible.

Shop when it's not crowded. Try to get to the store early in the morning or shop at off-peak hours when stores are less crowded. If you arrive and the store is packed, go back at another time.

Bring your own sanitizing wipes. Most stores are providing sanitizing wipes, but it’s a good idea to bring your own just in case your store has run out. Wipe down your cart before you shop. Not just the cart handle either, try and get the child seat clean too.

Wearing gloves and a mask is not necessary. If you wear gloves and touch a contaminated product, your gloves will just contaminate the next thing you touch. The World Health Organization’s general advice concerning masks is, if you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with suspected COVID-19 infection. Your best practice is to avoid touching your face while shopping and wash your hands when you get home.

Should you try to ‘disinfect’ fresh fruits and veggies? “No. Currently there is no evidence of food or food packaging being associated with transmission of COVID-19, said Dr. Elizabeth Bihn, Director of the Produce Safety Alliance and Executive Director of the Institute for Food Safety at Cornell University. “COVID-19 is a respiratory virus, most likely to be transmitted person to person. Current guidance from USDA recommends rinsing produce under cold running water to remove any lingering dirt. If there is a firm surface, such as on apples or carrots, the surface can be scrubbed with a brush.” Dr. Bihn added, “Ingesting bleach, other sanitizers, and detergents can be dangerous and lead to other health issues.”

If you are considered a high risk individual, have your groceries delivered, if you can. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests elderly, immunocompromised, people with respiratory ailments, heart disease or diabetes or are undergoing cancer treatment should avoid going in public.

The above video includes even more steps you can take to ease your mind and shop as safely as possible.
