Location independent artist, constantly broke, constantly moving.
I’ve done a lot of crazy things since I set out in 2015. I’ve hitchhiked Europe on £3 per day, been scammed in Thailand, robbed in France and run out of money in Japan. Does that stop me from travelling? No! And it shouldn’t stop you either!
Here on New Wanderlust I let you into the secrets of travelling smart and travelling cheap. I tell you all my disaterous expeditions and hopefully how you can learn from my mistakes. Also included are my reviews on hostels, app recommendations and minimal travel packing lists! In my visual journal you can find my little webcomic about the more funny side of travelling and little annoyances travellers face.
Keep checking back for new comics and tips on how to avoid travel disaster as well as some new hostel reviews! Or better yet, sign up to my mailing list for exclusive content and post notifications!
