My name is Alex, born and raised in little Belgium (yes that country without a government). With this site I wanted to keep a logbook of my travels and adventures on the road during my backpacking trip around the world. It also keeps my family and my friends around the world updated on my life away from home.
The plan is to travel low-budget around (half) the world. I’m not trying to go for the record of the least money spent or traveling the lightest. I’m just a common backpack traveler that wants to do a low-budget backpacking trip around the world.
On this blog I will post my research and planning and interesting resources for my trip. I’m a novice backpack traveler and I’m still trying to learn about efficient backpack traveling for long periods of time and along multiple countries.
I changed the name of the site from www.mybackpackingadventures.com to www.asianbackpacker.com. I figured that the name was a bit long and asianbackpacker.com was still available. I also picked the new name to share my experiences as an Asian backpacker.
