Hi there! Welcome to The Little Backpacker, a travel blog focused on making the most of every opportunity to travel. Expect posts to be packed with useful tips and advice on how to live and work aboard. As well as a heavy dose of travel ideas focusing on Europe and Asia.
Who is The Little Backpacker?
I’m Jodie and I’m always wearing a backpack. I believe in making the most of every opportunity to travel which has lead me to living in Dubai as an expat and teaching full time. I get 15 weeks of freedom a year and try to make the most of every minute. 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.
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 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.
