About the Lost Backpacker

When I am not traveling the world as the Lost Backpacker, I often go by Ken. I am an explorer and a dreamer, and my biggest passion in life is to personally experience different cultures and places, people and environments.

When I travel, I enjoy local foods and off the beaten path adventures. I think that the best way to see the world, is through the eyes of a local.

I live by one philosophy, one so clearly articulated by the great American novelist Mark Twain:

"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

So come along on my journey with me!
