A little about myself, if you haven’t already guessed, I’m Tasha Amy, a twenty something year old kiwi with an incurable case of wanderlust.

I am the creator and writer at Backpackers Wanderlust, which has become my pride and joy.

My travel style is luxury for less and affordable travel. You may find me at a fancy hotel, though I will be eating at local restaurants to save money. I may stay in a hostel, though partaking in amazing once in a lifetime activities. I travel with a backpack to avoid paying for check in luggage fees, though that doesn’t mean I wont splurge and pay for extra leg room. Maximizing your experiences is all about choosing where you decide to spend your money, cutting back in certain areas can allow you to spend more in others. I mean there’s no point in traveling to the other side of the world if you cannot experience the best it has to offer!

Though, I haven’t always been this way, rewind back to 2014. I was a basic university student who’s life revolved around study and working at a supermarket.

That was until I traveled abroad for the first time summer of 2015….

I headed to Costa Rica and fell in love with the Latin American culture and the whole idea of travel. Unfortunately, I had to head home after two months, though much to my family’s disappointment t I swapped an accounting and business law degree to study photography. That was 2016.

Truth be told, I am no jet-setter with thousands of dollars in my bank account, no rich parents who fund my travels or some lottery winner. Instead, I spend my time not on the road working long weeks, living cheaply and saving every spare dollar.

I created Backpackers Wanderlust to share all my travel tips, secrets and stories in hope that it will inspire you to explore this absolutely amazing planet.

To me backpacking is all about truly exploring a destination and getting off the beaten track, but at the same time maximizing your experiences and living life to the fullest .
