Welcome to Backpackerboy.com! This is where I share my travel tales and advice picked up from more than 10 years backpacking in various places around the world. I share my favourite places to visit, along with tips on how to travel cheaply whilst still going far.

I haven’t always been a travel enthusiast. Until I was 18 all I’d done was sit by the pool on holidays in Spain and France. For some reason, after school I decided it would be a good idea to go and teach English in Roatan, a small island off the north coast of Honduras. I was there for 12 months, living in a small village and teaching in the local school and that was me bitten by the bug. Since then I haven’t been able to stop and have travelled all over the world, loving every second of it. I’m always looking for the next place to visit and don’t think I’ll be happy until every last one has been ticked off the list.


If you’re looking for advice on where to travel, when to go or what to do then read on and hopefully you’ll find something helpful! This site has been created to pass on useful information picked up from travelling around the world to help people have the best time on their backpacking trip they possibly can.
