The ONLY travel website that does not talk about destinations!
The Evolving Backpacker is not your average travel blog. It’s a medium to explore yourself and the world around you; to evolve and to become better versions of ourselves by having uplifting experiences, thinking higher thoughts, and by living richer and fuller lives. Travel is metaphorically depicted on this platform to relate to our own individual paths and journeys in life.
Join me as I share my travel experiences and my thoughts relating to zen, spirituality, and transcendentalism: Two apparently distinct themes at first glance, yet strangely conjoined and co-related in more ways than one.
Travel & Evolve

More About The Evolving Backpacker and its Founder Jason
The Evolving Backpacker was born out of a solo road trip that its founder, Jason Rebello undertook way back in 2004, while he was in his late twenties – settled in his career as a mariner, yet restless to understand the true reason for his existence. Jason was hooked on the travel bandwagon; he had found his true passion in life and he embarked on an endless journey of discovery and exploration ever since.
His sole companion during that initial trip was a self-help book by Tony Robbins titled – Awaken the Giant Within. The book was transformational, and Jason wasted no time jotting down copious notes on what he sought to achieve in life: career goals, personal goals, adventure goals, and contributory goals.
He did not know it back then, but Jason had embarked on two simultaneous journeys – the first one in the physical world; the other on a spiritual plane.
The Evolving Backpacker is a confluence of Jason’s two personal interests. This is a travel website that does not talk about travel in the conventional sense. In fact, as the tag line suggests, the topics focus on the metaphorical journey and not just the destination.
Its readers typically are:
- Travel enthusiasts and adventurers who enjoy nature
- Persons seeking self-help and motivational topics and who want to live a better and more meaningful life.
- Dreamers and creators who pursue their passion and who seek more to life than the remainder 99% of the sleepwalkers.
Readers receive regular posts about topics relating to zen, meditation, transcendentalism, spirituality, and travel. Through this website, Jason encourages readers to travel far and wide and to live their lives with unbridled excitement; with the prospect of new discoveries every single day.
