Part of travelling is the huge amount of effort that goes in to getting big rewards; you travel somewhere for 12 hours and, at the end of the day, you arrive somewhere truly amazing and unforgettable. The package tourists don't have the mental or physical stamina, unless there is an airport close by, so you really do get a big reward for the pain that it took to get there.
However, sometimes, you end up doing these journeys with very little reward and cannot help resenting the fact that you are the only backpacker in the entire world who has spent 50 quid and 12 hours of his life to experience this misted, dirty window and the view of the only other bloke on the bus's head, 2 rows away.
