It’s about the journey, not the destination…

The Evolving Backpacker is not your average travel blog. It’s a medium to explore yourself through travel and face up to life’s challenges. Travel isn’t just about the destination, it’s about the journey you take to get to that destination and the experiences you have when you’re there. Anyone can go on a holiday, but not everyone goes on an adventurous journey of discovery.

 

Join me as I share my experiences through travel and the “zen in my backpack” each and every step of the way.

The Waking – By Theodore Roethke

The Rainbow In Your Pocket

When I was a young lad I remember this one incident when I came across the Rainbow Man for the first time. It was the start of our summer school holidays and we were boarding a plane bound for our village. We were one of the first to board and once I took my seat, I...

In the eternal words of Thoreau – Go fish and hunt far and wide day by day — farther and wider — and rest thee by many brooks and hearth-sides without misgiving. Rise free from care before the dawn, and seek adventures.
