About Backpackingman

Hi, I’m Jonny. I started backpacking around the world in 1997 and have continued to live and travel abroad ever since. I started Backpackingman in 2013 to give advice to other travellers about adventure, culture, and budget travel. On my adventures, I met my wife, Sidra, and we now travel the world together.
