Minimalist Backpacker Rediscovering a Playful Path
Life is play, and the world is a playground. I share a simply playful approach to travel. So you'll have a safer, affordable, authentic and enjoyable journey.


Solo travel

While I have meet and teamed up with other travelers I have meet along the way, the majority of time I have spent traveling on my own.

Budget travel

My interest is how to live and travel like a local. Each country I go to I determine the average wage and cost of living and manage my budget accordingly.

Long-term travel
