– describes not only a way of travel it’s rather a lifestyle.

The backpacker lifestyle (thebackpackway) stands for favoring locally owned accommodations over big hotels, eating in local restaurants instead of Fast Food chains (a few exceptions are absolutely legit), and getting to know the local culture.

Always trying to make the most memorable and more sustainable travel experiences.


In 2015 I planned my first solo trip to Thailand which was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had! I decided to write my adventures down in an online diary to keep my family and friends posted.

After some writing, I wanted to share more of my experiences, especially with other travelers, whose advice and recommendations I was so thankful for while abroad.

This was the birth of my idea for thebackpackway.com!

I hope you enjoy reading my adventures! :)
