¡Bienvenido! স্বাগতম! Selamat Datang! 您好! Tervetuloa! こんにちは! Добро пожаловать! 안녕하세요! สวัสดี! Hoşgeldiniz! Saluti! नमस्कार! مرحبا hujambo! გამარჯობა! Herzlich Willkommen! Welcome to my blog!
So, who exactly is Backpacker Lee?
I am a graduate teacher, language student, and world traveller. I have a long history of backpacking solo in South East Asia, India, and the Far East. I have also spent time backpacking solo through Uganda, Ethiopia, and Madagascar – so you could say I’ve been around a bit! As far as my online antics are concerned, I am merely an amateur travel blogger – but I enjoy what I do. I hope you will find some of my articles interesting!
To which countries do I want to visit?
Aside from my absolute favourite country, Singapore, I have probably spent the most time in Indonesia or China. For an almost comprehensive page of all my articles on this blog, please check out The Site Index!
When I go back to China, I’d like to visit Hangzhou, as well as see the ‘floating mountains’ at Zhangjiajie National Scenic Area in Hunan Province. In Australia, I really need to go back to experience Queensland and go trekking through the Daintree Rainforest, and try snorkelling amidst the Great Barrier Reef – and who knows, maybe even go cage diving with Great Whites! And I have never, ever been to Chile, which is a big omission from my list thus far!
So what else interests me apart from travelling?
I am very much interested in aviation, learning languages, and I am becoming a bit of a foodie! Now I am beginning to travel to experience the delightful local cuisines, as well as the local cultures! Not one country passes me by where I do not experiment with some delicacy or another, although obviously not everything tickles my taste buds! There are some foods I will not eat even if you paid me! Regarding my languages, I am conversational in Spanish, German, Russian, Turkish, Indonesian, Chinese (Mandarin), and Korean, while also currently learning Burmese, and Hindi!
