The Little Backpacker

Hello and Welcome to The Little Backpacker!

The Little Backpacker is a travel blog focusing on weekend breaks, expat living and plenty of tips for planning your next trip.

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.

Since then I've been on some pretty amazing adventures; taking a gap year, working in Australia, living in Rio de Janeiro, being an expat in Dubai and so much more.

Recently, my husband, two cats and I relocated back to England after the craziness of the beginning of this year. Follow along with our next adventure as we get ready for the arrival of our baby girl in November 💗

Find me on Instagram, Twitter or Youtube.
