A Solo Backpacker's Journey

Hi there, I'm Amy!

In May 2019, I quit my full-time desk job and booked a one way flight to Japan. The decision to put my career on hold was not one I took lightly, but the world was calling me. I am drawn to the mystic of traveling, experiencing things I'm not accustomed to, learning about the culture, the food, and the people.

My goal of this trip is to escape my comfort zone, past any boundary I've ever broken. I'm really going for my eat, pray, love moment. I am a solo backpacker traveling through Asia Pacific.

The Solo Backpacker Plan

The plan is that there's really no specific plan - I'm trying to escape the comfort zone of planning! However, I'd like to be gone for around 9 months and visit:

  • Japan
  • Korea
  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • Vietnam
  • Cambodia
  • Thailand
  • Malaysia
  • Indonesia

The plan is not concrete. If you have any suggestions I'd love to hear them 🙏🏻
