About Life Of Y

Welcome to Life of Y! My name is Jeff - I’m a UK-based blogger who has a passion for travel and adventure! I knew from the moment I went backpacking back in 2006 that there must be more to life than the whole 'eat, sleep, work, repeat' routine!

Since then, I've been to over 50 countries, 6 continents and seen all 7 world wonders and I want to tell you all about my experiences, good and bad. I want to offer all of you guys the best tips and hacks on how to travel cheaply and responsibly. If someone like me can travel to so many amazing places then surely you can too?!
