I am Graeme Edment and I’m the one behind Lets Backpack travel blog.  The reason behind starting this blog was to give tips and advice and share my experiences in the world of travelling. Depending on your personality, you may find travelling simple and take it in your stride or you may find the stress of it very difficult but regardless of who you are, it’s something I believe you should embrace with open arms.

To be truthful, I am the first of the two personality types, I act first and think second which has opened up many experiences around the world but research never done anyone harm…which is probably why you are reading.

If you have anything you want me to write about or any questions about my experiences, the blog, travelling or simply how many sugars I take in my tea, feel free to email me at
