What is backpacksandbunkbeds.co.uk
Well, this here is what you would call a travel blog, it’s also occasionally referred to as an online magazine, but I prefer blog. This is where people come to get their travel inspirations. With a focus on backpacking, adventure travel, hostel life, volunteering and budget travel this award winning blog has something for pretty much everyone, especially if you are a fan of photography and video. I know that reading endless lines of text can be mind numbing no matter the subject matter, so its jpegs and mp4s a’ plenty around here. I just want to help/inspire other people like me with a love for travel in whatever way I can.
Hi, I’m Neil a late (sigh) twenty something blogger with a seemingly unquenchable thirst for exploring this big wide world of ours. Self taught in the ‘art’ of travel blogging, I created backpacksandbunkbeds.co.uk back in 2011 after learning web design at night school and needing a subject matter to base my HTML based skills on. 24 months later and this is the result, ta-dar!
Sadly this blog is not my full time job, as much as I’d like it to be. Come 9am on a Monday morning I can be found in a London office along with thousands of others, but its not all bad though because London is a pretty cool place to live. So cool I even had a category dedicated to it on the blog.
When not at the day job of working on the blog I can either be found eating, watching movies, and the football with my dad or just taking a stroll with my trusty camera set (iphone 4S, GoPro 3 White and Sony Nexf3). We’re a team!

Are you organising a press trip and want a bloggers point of view? Do you want live coverage of the trip destination spread out over the web via social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Instgram. Do you want a fully comprehensive, SEO optimised blog post complied and posted upon return from said press trip. Maybe I could be that blogger? I’m no trouble honest, I’m British so can provide entertainment through dry wit and humour, understand the need for please’s and thank you’s, obviously love queuing and will generally do as I’m told (within reason).
Example press trip coverage - All aboard the MSC Preziosa
Would you like your product or service reviewed? I’d be more than happy to take your product and give it a little on the road test. Likewise with accommodation if I’m in your neighbourhood and you’d like me to come and review your hotel/hostel/guesthouse that’d be awesome.
In both cases a fully SEO optimised blog post would follow. Much like the two examples below …
Example Accommodation Review - Ultra Flashpacking at The Bougainvillier Hotel, Phnom Penh
Example Product Review - Luggage Review – The Karrimor Global Equator 40 Wheeled Travel Case
