This is the place to start planning all your gap year and backpacking trips.
Anyone can travel the world cheaply, easily and independently, but taking that step from dreaming about a gap year or round the world trip to actually planning and doing it can be daunting at first. There is just so much information out there and it can often lead to information overload.
Where do you start? How do you even go about starting to plan your gap year? How do you sort out the logistics of travel?
Don’t worry. It is normal to feel a little overwhelmed. That is why Bemused Backpacker is here to help you. I have been travelling the world independently for over twenty years and through over 100 countries.

I’m here to help you sort through the maze of information and logistical problems and help you plan your independent backpacking trip or gap year.
