While his friends have locked down well-paid jobs, found suitable partners and started saving for house deposits, the Tragic Traveller continues to roam the Earth, searching desperately for some kind of deeper meaning to life (and also the best place to get drunk on a $10 budget).

If you visit this website regularly (recommended), you can follow this not-so-young Australian backpacker’s adventures as he fails in love, fritters away what little money he has left and finds himself in sticky situations (both metaphorically and literally).


It’s a mostly satirical, occasionally profound view into the life of a hopelessly addicted long-term traveller. Also there are photos.
