About Me

Who is The Little Backpacker?

I’m Jodie, a twenty-something Brit working her way around the world. I love road trips, seeking out cute cafes and cramming each day with as much adventure as possible. I want to show people they don’t have to be rich to travel the world.

I have been living a life of travel since 2011 when I met my now husband. After a long three year slog at university I have finally qualified as a teacher so for the next year you’ll find me living in the UK and teaching my very own class. Of course being a teachers means I get time off work every six weeks and already have some VERY exciting trips planned for those holidays.

What Kind of Blog is The Little Backpacker

The Little Backpacker is a travel focused blog thats aims to inspire and inform people to get out of their comfort zone. Content focuses on destination itineraries, working aboard tips, photo essays and helpful information.ย The Little Backpacker began as a way to document my โ€˜gap yearโ€™ to friends and family but has since evolved into a travel blog that focuses on budget and adventure. I am to show you that you don’t need to be rich to travel the world.

I hope you’ll join me on this crazy journey we call life.

    Hi. Your blog is so amazing. You love travel and photography whereas I love travel and writing. Quite same because we all love to record or “take note” what we run across into in the life by our own ways. I hope the best to your travels. If you get to Vietnam, so nice to meet you ๐Ÿ™‚
