Travels of Adam

Backpack with Brock

Two Bad Tourists

They have now been to places in Central and South America, Europe, the Middle East, southeast and far-east Asia and also Africa. They also do a lot of things on the cheap to prove to others that travelling and being a tourist does not have to cost a lot of money.

Dream Euro Trip

DJ is a seasoned traveller who has been to pretty much every country in Europe (hence the name of the blog) and not only does he write about all his adventures but he also helps others plan their own trips in Europe, giving them tips on where to go, what to do and gives them an idea of how much it could cost them.

Flashpack at Forty

In 2011 they started the world trip in Australia and have since been to several other countries in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and southeast and far-east Asia. “Flashpacking” is a term they coined to explain to others who perhaps may have thought they were approaching a mid-life crisis.


In over 2 and a half years, New York architect Norbert has been to an impressive 83 countries. His goal is to visit all 192 UN listed countries by 2020, so the fact that it’s only 2014 and he’s nearly half way means he’s doing pretty well!

Quirky Travel Guy
