About Us

Hello, Welcome to The Wise Backpacker. I'm William. I've been obsessed with seeing the world since I first went on a backpacking trip to Australia in 2004. Since then my passion has ever increased and I find myself trying to scout at more and more hard to find destinations. Together with my partner Kylie, we've lived in Brasil, Hong Kong, UK and New Zealand. We are currently in Hong Kong, but spending every opportunity to see as much of the world as we can. I've written for numerous publications, including the Guardian newspaper as a gap year expert, and have also had several photographs published by them.
