Before we begin I’ve just got a few questions for you:

ARE YOU CURIOUS ABOUT GIVING LONG-TERM BACKPACKING A GO?

WANT TO DO IT SOLO BUT HAVE RESERVATIONS ABOUT GOING AT IT ALONE?

ARE YOU TOYING WITH THE IDEA BUT THINK YOU CANT AFFORD IT?

DO YOU WANT TO BREAK FREE OF SOCIETIES SHACKLES, JUMP OUT OF THE BOX AND JUST ROAM FREE?

OR ARE YOU JUST LOOKING ENJOY SOME NO BULLSHIT, UNFILTERED, SOMETIMES EMBARRASSING BUDGET TRAVEL STORIES BY NOT SO PERFECT LONG-TERM BUDGET BACKPACKER?

If you’ve answered YES to any of those questions, that’s awsome because you’re in the right place, this start here page will guide you through to the right place.

Why are you in the right place? Because before I took the plunge and packed my backpack for the first time in 2010, I was exactly the same as you.

So Who am I?

part of Forever Roaming the World's start here page

I’m Amit, a guy from a small town; Loughborough in England (UK) who grew up dirt poor and against the grain. I’m that guy who always wanting more from life than what society deems normal. I always knew the world was full of wonder outside of my shitty little town, and just wanted to explore and travel. I struggle deeply with normality, but the problem was, I didn’t know how it was possible to break free of those shackles society wanted to bound me in. And, I sure as hell didn’t think I could afford it, somebody like me couldnt be a nomad and just go traveling around the world!

However, in 2010, my life flipped upside down, inside out, a fire was lit from under me, and somehow I broke free of the shakles and I took the plunge into my new life with just £600 to my name. Since 2010 I’ve been roaming the world, backpacking, living, partying, learning from fuckups, mistakes and bad decisions to get to this point of experience. And, along the way in 2017 Forever Roaming the World was born. I have to admit, even to this day, there are days I have to pinch myself that this is my life.

Unfiltered Forever Roaming the World

I wont lie, in 2017 Forever Roaming the World was not what it’s become today. It was just a travel blog, following the trend of others being the novice blogger I was.

Present day Forever Roaming the World was relaunched in Jan 2020 and smashes through all the fakeness Long-term budget travel is sometimes percieved to be. It’s unfiltered, no bullshit, and tells you how it is. Long-term budget traveling is life changing, full of incredible highs, experiences and moments but there is another side to it. The side behind the veil, It’s hard at times, there will be struggles, and you have to dig deep within yourself.

Forever Roaming the World provides you with the truth about Long-term budget and solo backpacking. I’ll aid you with relevant tips and help on how to get through the lows, the hardships, the fuck ups you might make. It shows what backpacking life is really like on a daily basis, the highs and lows, the emotional states, the struggles, and everything in between.

Research and planning

There is so much conflicting information out there when it comes to planning and researching destinations and trips. Some will preach about over-planning and strict ittineries, while other long-term budget travelers do nothing. I’ve found over the years the key to maintaining long-term travel is to plan loose as possible but to research well. While plans change on a whim for us long-term budget travelers, researching a trip well does help in just having an idea of your chosen destinaion and surrounding areas.

If you need some help with planning and researching or how to get started, head over to this section. You’ll find a comprehensive aid starting from before you’ve even decided the destination, guidance with visa options, accomodation, choosing transport, travel insurance choosing between tours and traveling independantly.

Long-term budget backpacking isn’t a holiday. It’s not adventure after adventure. Don’t get me wrong, I love it, I love roaming free and wouldnt change it for anything but there are some realisms you need to be aware of.

There are posts like surviving when funds run dry, what backpacker hostel life is really like, times you may get stuck, dealing with language problems in foreign countries and much more…
