Ahoy! My name is Will Hatton, founder and chief editor of The Broke Backpacker.
Since the birth of this website in September 2014, The Broke Backpacker has grown into one of the world’s best known adventure travel blogs. In 2018, we have been expanding… fast.
We now have an awesome team of 7 full time team members and several talented freelancers working with us.
We are real travelers who love to step away from the beaten path to discover offbeat countries and hidden gems…
We pride ourselves in putting together the most accurate, detailed and down to earth content on the web. This is a site for backpackers, by backpackers. You won’t see any cocktails on the beach bullshit here – this isn’t that kind of site.
This is a site all about longterm sustainable travel – we are passionate about showing others how to ditch their desks, hit the road and earn an income whilst traveling the world.
We are not interested in free gear. We will not promote gear, destinations, experiences or services that go against our core beliefs.
We very rarely work with campaigns, advertisers, tourism boards etc – please read our full terms and conditions before contacting us. Below are some key statistics about our website and social media channel.
