Barry HackettHi, I’m Barry and I’d like to thank you for taking the time to visit my travel blog.

The idea behind Backpacking Barry was a few years in the making. Mostly because it took me forever to learn how to use a camera and build a website 😉

For as long as I can remember I’ve had an irresistible appetite for the art of globe trotting and seeing the world.

My goal for Backpacking Barry is to take all the things that inspire me and combine them into a single labor of love so that they might inspire you.

Traveling, writing, photography, health, culture, music, and people are just a few of the subjects I’d like to explore through the Backpacking Barry forum.

I’m just a normal guy with a passion for travel and photography. Before beginning this blog, I had zero experience related to the fields of graphic design, website creation, photoshop, or social media.

It’s all just one big experiment, and a hell of a learning experience. But as time progresses I’m becoming a lot more confident.

If you’ve read this far then I thank you for your interest, and I hope you enjoy Backpacking Barry.

Lastly I’d like to invite you to view my other photo portfolios at BarryHackett.com and www.hitchedphoto.com

Thanks so much for your love and support,

& happy travels,

Barry Hackett
