It’s been 8 and a half months since Ashray left India to travel on the opposite side of the world. Backpack ME is living proof that we are very happy with what we are doing – it shows, doesn’t it? But sometimes one can’t help but to miss home. And … more »
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words.
In this section we share with you visuals from our travels around the world.
So come back for more honest photos and see how beautiful the world truly is!
Gili Air is a tiny Island off the coast of Lombok in Indonesia. It’s a beautiful little unsustainable chunk of paradise. The Island measures about a kilometer from end to end and has developed some huts, restaurants and other tourist facilities. There is no drinking water on the island and … more »
On the Galapagos Islands you get to see some really strange kinds of Cacti. Over a hundred years ago Charles Darwin had spotted a giant Galapagos tortoise eating one of these. I wonder how they avoided getting thorns in their mouths :O
Spotted in Singapore. A very interesting stove on top of a table where they place your soup so that it stays warm. Oh, and a beautiful girl reading a text.

The Cuernos del Paine mountains covered by a cloud and the sun peeping out creepily from behind. Looks like a scene from The Lord of the Rings. The wind was at 110km/hr. This is a pretty crazy place in winter.
We spotted this parking lot during winter in Torres del Paine National Park, Chile. The parking lot appears to have gotten submerged due to snow melting in the surrounding mountains. If you lived in that house, you’d have surely got your feet wet. Sorry folks, no parking today!
