Backpacking is a form of budget travelling where you travel with only a backpack. Every single trip I have taken has always been a backpacking trip- I have never taken a suitcase, that life just isn’t for me.

From staying in hostels to eating street food, it’s all part of travelling on a budget.

It’s super easy to backpack in some countries, but in others not so much. But I always find a way to make it work, and through my backpacking guides, I’ve shared my experience and tips and tricks to help your trip go even smoother than mine.

So far, I’ve backpacked in 24 countries and I’m in the process of writing backpacking guides for each destination. In the meantime, check out some of the guides I have already published here:
