About me I started my backpacking career about ten years ago, when I left home at 17 to travel for a full year. I did the not-so-original Oceania/SE-Asia tour (in my case Australia, NZ, Vietnam, Thailand, HK and Taiwan). Since then I have also traveled Malaysia, Singapore, Iceland, etc. Most enjoyable about traveling is the feeling of freedom, the inspiration in meeting others on the road (be it locals or fellow travelers) and the diversity of scenary to enjoy. Ten years down the road these joys have yet to cease and my backpack is still my best friend. I enjoy combining exploring hustling and bustling cities, streneous public transportation experiences and trekking/hiking.
