start here - forever roaming the world

Hey there, glad you’ve found me 😀

Welcome to my humble abode. So this is  your first time visiting? Well just simply answer the following questions correctly to qualify to carry on – If you fail please leave immediately …No, no…I’m only joking, of course you can stay 😀 However I do need to ask:

Do you dream about traveling the world but don’t think you can afford it?

Do you want to backpack the world solo but have major concerns?

Are you looking to backpack long-term but not sure how to?

If you answered yes to any of these questions you’re in the right place – I reckon you should grab yourself a cuppa, a coffee or something stronger if you want, kick back and make your self at home. Looks like you’ve just found your new favorite website.

It’s great to meet you.

Hi, I’m Amit, roamer of the world, creator and owner of forever roaming the world.

So, I Left home (Nottingham; yup that’s right Robin Hood land, England) in 2010 with just a backpack and barely enough money to cover my first month in Australia. But somehow I managed to survive 2 full years, so I just carried on to the next country. I’ve been solo backpacking/traveling the world on tight shoestring budgets ever since.

Sound like something you want to do? Well if I can do it, so can you. I know, you’re saying “I wanna travel but I just can’t afford it, I don’t have the money or I just don’t know where to start.” I hear you, I used to say that too, that was me all over but it never got me anywhere. However I finally did something, I bit the bullet, said fuck it and just did it. So, this site is here for you, to inspire you to stop thinking about it and to do it.

You should know…

I grew up dreaming about traveling the world, be an explorer but it was a far-fetched dream. You see I come from a really poor background, I was a degenerate (We all have a story and a past) and going traveling was simply out of my reach. Like so many others I would fantasize about just upping and leaving, I would watch travel documentaries, YouTube videos and live vicariously through the people I watched…Until I actually did it.

I’m that guy that’s always thought differently to others, lived a life totally against the grain. I actually struggle with normality, I dunno I just can’t live in what society deems to be normal life. I’m that bird that needs to fly with the wind and not be caged. So if that’s how you’re feeling right now I’ve been there, I feel you, I know what It’s like.

There’s that famous saying – “Not all who wonder are lost“…Well I’m that guy that was so fuckin’ lost before I traveled. It was only after I started to roam the world that I didn’t feel lost. In-fact I’m only ever lost when I’m at home – Work that out!

Find out more about me, my story and how traveling went from being my dream to my reality here.
