Hi there! Welcome to The Little Backpacker, a travel blog focusing on weekend breaks, expat living and plenty of tips for planning your next trip.
Who is The Little Backpacker?
My name is Jodes and I started this blog back in 2011 before Instagram was really a thing and all I wanted to do was keep my family and friends up to date with my adventures. These days I run it along side a full time job of teaching.
I went on my first solo trip in 2010 when I volunteered in South Africa and have been in love with travel ever since. Following that I’ve worked aboard, taken a gap year, worked in Australia, lived in Rio de Janeiro, been back to university to get a degree, lived the expat life in Dubai for 2 years and visited 30+ countries.
If I’m not travelling then I’m likely to be stuck on SkyScanner planning holidays I’ll never have time to take. I love road trips, cute cafes, beach days, city exploring and the occasional crazy adventure.
Recently, my husband, two cats and I relocated back to England from Dubai after the craziness of the beginning of this year. We are now preparing for our next adventure as we get ready for the arrival of our baby girl in November 💗.

What Kind of Blog is The Little Backpacker?
The Little Backpacker is a travel focused blog that aims to inspire and inform people to not get bogged down in one place. Content focuses on destination itineraries, living aboard tips and helpful information. The Little Backpacker began as a way to document my ‘gap year’ to friends and family but has since evolved into a travel blog that focuses on travel adventures and expat life. I aim to show you that you don’t have to quit your career to travel the world.
I hope you’ll follow along on our worldwide adventures sharing tips and inspiration to help you to do the same.
