You are actually reading https://abrokenbackpack.com at your own risk (it is not a HUGE one!).  Nobody forced you to be here, but I am glad you are! If you don’t agree with what you are currently reading, you need to leave now. BUT… if you want to learn more about my own experiences as a backpacker, a broken lady and a travel blogger, you should stay!  Everything you read here is from my own head, based on my experiences and/or my researches.

I am not a robot (obviously), but I will do my best to make sure everything is updated.  I can’t guarantee that everything is right/perfect as I am only…human.  If you notice anything wrong, please, let me know.
