Welcome to Becksplore! – A Solo Backpacking Blog

This blog was launched in 2017 for travellers from all around the world: proving travel tips, destination guides, budget travel advice, travel stories and much more. If you like to travel to the most beautiful places in the world without going over your budget, you have come to the right place!

After having backpacked throughout different parts of the world and stayed at a ton of different hostels, I have decided to document my travels on this blog. This not only makes me feel connected to travelling even when I am stuck at home, but also gives me the possibility to share my experiences with you travellers out there! 

Glad you found my website, and thank you very much for visiting. After I graduated from High School back in 2014, I had taken a year off and travelled to Australia for a year and also spent some time in Asia.

This is pretty much where it all started! After coming back home, I moved to the Netherlands and started studying International Business Administration, but all I’ve been wanting to do since is travelling. Now, I’ve been taking any chances in between studying to travel the world. And I will let you all be part of this journey.

I like to discover new cultures and in my opinion life is not meant to be lived in only one place. Apart from my year in Australia, I have done a High School Year in the United States when I was 15 and just recently finished my semester abroad in South Korea. I’m excited to see where I will be heading next.
