Welcome To Joel’s Travel Tips

Hi! I’m Joel. I’ve loved travelling and exploring this beautiful world ever since I first went backpacking at the tender age of 18 – a whole lifetime ago!

I knew I was never meant to spend my life cramped up in a cubicle at work. I wanted to see more of this world, one country at a time. So I decided to quit my job and spend my time working, travelling, and living overseas. 

That was back in 2006 and since then I’ve been travelling slowly around this world, living in five other countries whilst visiting dozens more.
