Backpario - App

Here at Backpario we travelled a lot too so we know what really matters, and what you often miss and need when traveling. With Backpario we’re bringing the app to the market that we always wanted while traveling.

In comparison to other confusing and chaotic social media groups Backpario filters posts by your location and relevant categories. That’s how you find exactly what you’re looking for.
