About us

For those of you who don't know us, nice to meet you, we are Dan and Bailey!

We are just another couple of crazy backpackers, likely, not so different from yourself! Our list of places to see around the world is constantly growing and our passion for living an exciting life full of adventure and culture fuels us!

We are just your regular twenty-something backpackers. We travel on a budget, we like a good party, and we are suckers for a funny travel story. In fact, you may have already ran into us in a hostel, chatting with fellow travelers over a beer (we like to talk as much as we like to write!)

We are from different corners of the world ourselves, Daniel is from Australia and Bailey is from Canada. Naturally, we met while travelling! As a couple, our biggest common interest has always been travel and our sense of adventure.

What do we love most about travel?

The adventure! The thrill that comes along with experiencing something totally new. We are constantly pushing the limits and stepping outside of our comfort zones, whether that means taking local transport in a developing country or jumping out of airplane.

The amazing thing about travel is that everyday is a new experience for us. Learning about unique cultures and seeing some of the most beautiful corners of the world makes life that much more exhilarating. 

Why is our blog called “Destinationless Travel?

We think that the best kind of travel is endless, or without a final destination. Travel is all about the journey, not just the destination. 

As we like to say, “you can’t get lost if you don’t have a destination!”

What are some of your travel highlights?

We both had the most amazing time backpacking in South America. Literally, we still talk about it everyday and are planning to go back. Somewhere between celebrating Carnival in Rio in Brazil, skydiving in Bolivia, scuba diving on San Andres Island, and hiking the Torres del Paine we fell in love with continent. 

That being said, we have had some incredible travel experiences all over the world. Off the top of our head some of our favourites would be:

Where are we now? 

After selling our home in New Zealand (a self-contained campervan that we lived in for nearly four months) we packed up our backpacks again and headed to Asia!

We just finished a month of backpacking in Myanmar (AKA Burma) and then spent another month in Sri Lanka where we drove around the country in our own tuk-tuk for 27 days!

Now (June 2019) we are in Bali, Indonesia! Honestly, we are using our time in Bali to catch up on some work (our blog and our other writing jobs.) We only have a couple of weeks here before we are off traveling again!

You can follow our journey on our Instagram, Facebook, or subscribe to our emails (at the bottom of this page!)

Where are we going next? 

We are super excited to be spending the summer in Canada! I (Bailey) can’t wait to finally explore my own backyard and show Daniel how amazing Canada is in the summer (he has only ever been in the dead of winter!) Lots of hikes, festivals, and cocktails on patios are the plan – sounds fantastic doesn’t it?!

After Canada we have a sneaky Mexico trip in the works. We are still figuring out the details of this one but we both love Mexico so we are looking forward to returning. 

And finally, we are finishing off 2019 with a bang in Patagonia! We’ve just locked in the Torres del Paine 8-day hike which we know will be epic!

Renting a tuk tuk in Sri Lanka was an awesome experience!
