One of the things I’m often asked is "How on earth did you get started with all this?”

For as long as I can remember, I've loved to both travel and share my passions, peeves, and points of view with others around me. For the last 5 years I have had the privilege of a job which brings me to interesting corners of the world.  

Businessandbackpack is a new project that aims to provide a single home for all the impressions from my travels, both work-related and personal. Explore my site, and enjoy.

So the first part (of 5) of my journey is already over. After 2 weeks in and around Buenos Aires, I am now flying to Bolivia.

Let’s start by looking back - and that is easily summed up by: I had a fantastic time and am deeply thankful to all my friends who insisted that...
