Welcome to TravellerHannah! I am Hannah, a French and Spanish speaker from the UK. At the start of 2015 I left my job and England behind me, to backpack independently, cheaply and solo around South America.
Read about how I travel, spending as little as possible while doing as the locals, and staying safe too. 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.
