RestlessBackpacker.com was founded in 2018 as a hub for passionate backpackers that want to share their stories or advice with fellow adventurers.
Traveling to every corner of the world
Climbing every mountain
Exploring every trail
Recording all these experiences alone might leave little time for something else. We wanted to create a place where backpackers from every corner of the world can come together to share their stories with like-minded peers.
We love to explore mountain trails and take readers on a virtual journey through winding mountain paths that lead to breathtaking vistas. Through RestlessBackpacker we hope to:
Grow a tight community
where everybody can feel welcome to share their personal story.
to go out more by sharing unique mountain trails.
Make backpacking easier
by sharing unbiased reviews for tried and tested gear.
to respect nature with low-impact hiking.
Meet Our Restless Backpackers
Right now, for me, climbing a mountain is equal to rebooting my system. I’m a worrier and a perfectionist, so my brain always has multiple tabs open. But when I’m on a trail, it gets quiet, it gets peaceful, I feel like I can breathe again and enjoy nature’s untouched beauty.
I am an avid outdoor lover. The outdoors to me is the best medicine for stress and anxiety. I feel that escaping the modern edge of technology and automation that we are so used to in our lives helps to make us stronger and healthier as human beings. You can frequently find me exploring my local National Forest, state parks and any other public lands that I can get myself to.
Three years ago, my life felt as though it belonged to someone else. Stuck in an 8-5 job, 5 days a week, breaking my back to line someone else’s pockets, losing a grip of a passion for filmmaking that I never followed up; I was in a rut, to say the least. That was until I discovered walking.
