Welcome to TravellerHannah! I am Hannah, a French and Spanish speaker from the UK. I started this blog while travelling in Peru, after having left my job and England behind me, to backpack independently, cheaply and solo around South America. I settled in Ecuador and lived in the capital Quito for a year, and now live in Paris.
Read about how I travel, spending as little as possible and doing as the locals, while staying safe. My travel stories will show you how I put my tips into practice to learn how locals live, wherever I go.
Independent travel allows you to gain an authentic experience of the place you find yourself in, and it does not have to be expensive. To travel independently, be prepared but adaptable, be on your guard but open-minded, and have confidence.
Here is how I do it.
