The Lite Backpacker
Im Helen, AKA The Lite Backpacker – an Australian with an English accent (thanks to having one English parent) on the 30 side of my 20s. Like so many Australians, at 18 I packed up my backpack and headed to Europe, flittering from museum to bar for nearly a year. When I came home I thought I had gotten the travel bug out of my system as well as putting on an unhealthy amount of backpacking weight. Instead, within 6 months I had booked my next trip, with a vow of finding a way to enjoy travel food without the weight gain.
