My name is Simon Seymour, I spent my twenties dipping my toe into European cities for a few days at a time. At 30 I left my job, booked a one way flight to South America, and changed my life forever.

My perspectives changed, my character strengthened and my stories multiplied infinitesimally.

These are the tales of my time on the road and my own take on the backpacking lifestyle.

You wont find detailed itineraries of countries here, and you wont find reviews of hostels or prices of meals. You will find out what it is like to navigate strange countries alone, what the guidebooks wont tell you about about a nomadic life.
