Why Backpack Globetrotter?

That’s pretty easy: I always travel with a backpack and I dislike hand luggage and trolley bags. Here are a few more things about myself: I’m not a full time traveler, nor a writer. Actually, I’m not even close to that, as I have an 8 hours per day office job in a multinational company (not anymore, starting from March 2021) I work as a freelancer/consultant. But in my free time, I’m always trying to discover more of what the world has to offer.

I like to travel… Yeah, I know, what a cliché! Who doesn’t?! Writing was one of my passions as a child. Now, I’m trying to rediscover it. I’m pretty passionate about geography and history. And about meeting new people and discovering new places. Also, I tend to walk a lot during my travels. It helps me accomplish my travel goals.

Despite writing in first person, I don’t travel alone most of the times, but with my better half, Ioana. From time to time, it can happen to visit some places only by myself.
