I'm so glad you've found your way over here!

My name is Amanda and I have, as you probably have figured out already, a big passion for travelling – especially backpacking! 

My very first backpacking trip was in 2016. I visited Iceland, Canada, USA, Australia and lastly New Zealand. That was a pretty expensive trip, despite being a rather budget-friendly backpacking trip, and I quickly realised that I wanted to travel more – but I couldn’t afford it. At least, I couldn’t afford travelling in that same way.

So, I returned home to Sweden, worked to save some money and set off again in 2017. This time, I stayed in Europe and travelled solely by trains and buses. I planned this backpacking trip to be more affordable and, during the trip, I realised what it is I love about travelling. I don’t need alcohol, parties, expensive tours and restaurant food. I just want to find breathtaking views, explore different cultures and meet locals. Since then, I’ve seen backpacking and travelling in a completely different light.

In 2018, I finally decided to quit my job and start travelling full-time. After a few months, my boyfriend joined me on my adventure. Now, two years later, we’ve been to 4 beautiful countries so far, and we’re still travelling. 

You’re more than welcome to follow my adventures and hopefully get inspired to go backpacking yourself – it’s the best thing I’ve ever done!
