Nice to see you here and a big ‘Thank you!’ for supporting us on our blog!

– describes not only the way we travel it’s rather a lifestyle we have chosen.

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.

It’s a more sustainable travel experience.


People who travel the world for living always fascinated me.

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!

Being able to work from anywhere in the world while experiencing different cultures and FOOD was something I dreamed of for a long time.

Especially in my area of expertise, you don’t need to be in the same place the whole year.

While traveling I can fully embrace my interest in new cultures and get to met fascinating people from all over the world.
