Welcome to ‘The 30 Something Backpackers’! We are Chloe and Rich, a couple in our thirties who have left our jobs, home and life in the UK in search of adventure.

Our first stop in January 2017 is South East Asia. From there we’ll spend 7 months travelling the world, visiting some of the most breath-taking places on earth, from the turquoise depths of the Great Barrier Reef to the world’s driest desert.

We are not your stereotypical  18 year old backpackers, which is why we decided to create this blog. As well as enabling loved ones at home to stay up to date with our travels, we wanted to share our travel tips, stories and  photos and show that it’s never too late to follow your dreams and hopefully inspire others to do the same.

We should probably be getting married and having babies like most other thirty-somethings, but instead we’ve spent the last 2 years planning and saving for our dream trip. We’ve rented our house out to strangers and our belongings are in storage. We can’t wait to find out what the world has in store for us!

If you have any comments, questions or advice we’d love to hear from you! You can also follow our travels on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
