Welcome to Backpacks and Dreams

Hi there!

I’m Sarah, founder of Backpacks and Dreams, a travel lover with an affinity for finding unique, lesser-known experiences.

I travel full time, seeking the best off the beaten track experiences to share with you. From receiving a blessing from the youngest high priestess in Bali to exploring local markets, my mission is to inspire you to travel differently.

Currently, I am in in SE Asia writing new content about amazing lesser-known experiences.

Backpacks and Dreams is a valuable online resource for travel lovers everywhere.

Happy exploring!
