Who and what is Forever Roaming the World?

Long term Budget Backpacker – Unfiltered Travel Blogger – Unconventional Travel writer 

In 2010 the impossible came true, I packed my bags, left England for the other side of the world and haven’t stopped since. To say it’s been a crazy unpredictable ride into the unknown physically, emotionally and spiritually would be an understatement.

Along this journey I’ve turned and grown from Naive backpacker to a seasoned long term backpacker drifting in the wind. Forever Roaming the world veers away from the ‘normal’ travel blogs, there are no ‘top 10 lists’ there are no ‘must see and do’ posts and no over-glamorisation – This site shows you how it is; the incredible highs, experiences and moments but also the lows, f*#k ups and harsh realities that come with long term budget and solo backpacking. Forever Roaming the World will help and guide you with tips, advice and crazy stories to aid you on your backpacking journey.

Long term budget backpacking is no holiday

Long term budget backpacking is life altering. You can lose touch with reality, have the most incredible experiences, meet inspiring people, be introduced to amazing cultures and experience time stopping moments. BUT long term budget backpacking isn’t a holiday, it isn’t just adventure after adventure, It’s not as glamorous as sometimes perceived. There is another side to the backpacking coin. The side that doesn’t get talked about, day to day life, the hardships, the stresses, the mental lows, things going wrong, plans going astray and harsh realities. The traveling realism’s series delves into that other side of the coin.
