If you’re a girl thinking about hitting the road, she’s set up a backpacking blog specifically for women- appropriately titled Backpacking Spirit Women.

My iPhone 5 is one of the items in my carry-on bag that I just couldn’t live without. I use it to take beautiful photos, update my social media accounts, check my emails, make notes, communicate with people back home, organize my trips and even book my future travels. Sometimes it has even saved me [...]

Who is this Pommie chick?
I'm a British girl from Manchester and I have been traveling solo since 2008. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and work remotely. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and travel the world.
