Meet The Backslackers!
We’re Amy and Zach — The Backslackers — and we are L-A-Z-Y.
This summer, after we graduate from college, Zach and I are going to set off on an adventure of a lifetime: a year-long ’round the world trip. On our gap year between graduating college and getting real-world jobs, we’re going to backpack through Europe, Asia, Australia, South America, and EVERYWHERE ELSE!
The problem: we’re slackers. We need to force ourselves to save money and plan…and I don’t know if we can do it.
Hello world – Amy here! I am an English major but that is going to change soon! I graduate this summer and all I want to do is TRAVEL. THE. WORLD. The truth is: I’ve never traveled outside of America before and I don’t own a passport (YET!). After four years of hearing all about Zach’s adventures I decided I wanted to travel too! Who wouldn’t want to travel with their bestest friend evah! (I know you’re going to ask — he’s NOT my boyfriend. LOL) I’ll be sharing everything we’re up to as we prepare to go ’round the world!
Zach has already traveled all over the world. He took a year off after high school to travel and went on a ’round the world gap year trip then. After HIGH SCHOOL! Zach has been to over 30 countries and counting so he’ll be bringing you some articles and tips from the P-O-V of a seasoned traveler.
I’m sure there are others like us out there who want to do BIG THINGS but are too lazy to do them. When it comes to travel we’re not going to let our laziness get in the way! We’re going to save, we’re going to plan, and we’re going to TRAVEL THE WORLD! We hope you follow along with our journey and are inspired to stop being a SLACKER and start being a BACKPACKER!
