Hi there! Welcome to The Little Backpacker, a travel blog about budget travel and finding opportunities to live and work aboard. Expect posts to be packed with useful tips and advice on how to live and work aboard. As well as a heavy dose of budget travel ideas focusing on Europe.
Who is The Little Backpacker?
I’m Jodie, a twenty-something Brit currently living and working as an expat in Dubai with my husband. I am mildly obsessed with travel and tend to fill every spare minute with an adventure be it near or far. You’ll typically find me planning more holidays than I can take in a year. I love road trips, cute cafes, beach days, city exploring and the occasional crazy adventure.
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, been back to university to get a degree and visited 30+ countries.
I have been blogging since 2012 and run this along side a full time job teaching. It’s the perfect mix allowing me to have some kind of adventure every six weeks.

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 budget, adventure 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.
