Backpacking Without Getting Hairy
I’m planning a backpacking trip through Europe this summer with my fiancé and we want to pack as lightly as possible. We’re want to do some hiking through the Alps and lots of camping. We may even just pitch a tent out in the wild if they’ll let us. We’ve also got our eye on a few beaches in France and Italy that we’d like to see. Basically we hope to see as much as we can while we’re here but we’d still rather see a few nice places versus 100 cities in 20 days, or some crazy tour like that.
Although we’re going to be roughing it quite a bit, I’m not even considering letting my leg hair or armpits go wild. No way would I go to the beach looking like a furry beast (even though the say Europeans aren’t always avid shavers). My fiancé is also a bit fanatic about keeping his face shaved; especially during the summer.
So the question is, what sort of products are out there that we could take with us? Is there something that we might be able to use without water or that could be easily wiped, instead of washed, off?
Dear Backpacking Shavers,
I can certainly understand your desire to keep your list of toiletries as light as possible while traveling. Not only do you constantly have to worry about the weight of everything you bring along because of airline restrictions, but you also don’t want to be lugging around a lot of extra junk. And you can buy just about anything in Europe that you might realize you need; unless you are on top of a mountain or in the middle of nowhere.
Have you tried Wicked Good Shaving Gel? Not only will it be the only shaving gel both you and your fiancé need, but you can also use it without water. So if you get really far off the beaten path you can still keep your legs silky smooth; not ashamed that your shorts might reveal legs as harry as mine. It’s also unscented and 94% organic so you use it virtually anywhere on your body. A 2 ounce bottle will probably last about a month with both of you using it. And if you think you’re going to run out, we’ll just have to ship some more to you!
Enjoy your trip and if you happen to go through Frankfurt, maybe we can meet up! I love making new friends!!
All the best!
