Backpacker Bible was founded by Ben Reeson and Charlie Stone after they had extensively travelled across Europe, India, Australia and SE Asia.
We came up with the idea of creating a backpacker specific site because of our own experiences when travelling. Backpacker Bible was born out of our frustration of not being able to find the information we needed easily. Sure there are travel sites that have some interesting articles and basic online guides but we increasingly found that much of the information, particularly with regard to less well known routes, was either out of date or not necessarily that useful anyway.
It was particularly difficult to find reliable information on what to look out for and how to avoid tourist scams, which can be really handy to know especially when you are visiting a country so culturally different from your own. Website
