Hi! I'm Becky, founder of the blog and website wwww.whereverilaymypack.com.

Wherever I Lay My Pack – or WILMP as it can be abbreviated to (yes, I know it’s an awkward acronym!) aims to inspire and fulfil my readers full travel potential. I go on trips and write articles like other travel bloggers do, but what sets WILMP apart is that the trips I go on have an adventurous element to them. Not only that, but I show you in great detail how you can do the same journey. All trips are graded so you can see instantly whether it's something for you - with danger, difficulty and adventure ratings, resources, kit recommendations, suggestions of where to stay and any other key information related to that particular trip.

I write up trips and experiences after doing them - but Patrons get access to on the road, live updates as and when I am able to get internet access, so you are joining me on the journey while it happens.

If going your own way is more your thing, I also provide kit lists, guides, inspiration and ideas to help you plan your own unique adventures, plus offer assistance to travellers planning anything from short term trips to long haul expeditions. I have a passion for people powered travel, so a lot of WILMP is dedicated to the how to's and whys and where's of travelling under your own steam - using a bicycle, hiking and paddling, for example.

I have a background in the 'off the beaten track, small group adventures' travel industry, producing bespoke itineraries and obtaining visas for travellers to weird and wonderful places. Using this expertise and my own travel experiences (16+ years), I aim to inspire you to achieve your travel dreams – to aid you to get out there and see the world. I want to arm you with the tools and confidence to go out there and achieve your ambitions, whatever they may be. We only have one life – I want to show you how you can make the most of it.

To keep Wherever I Lay My Pack going is a labour of love and I enjoy creating content and giving others the opportunity to share in my adventures and start planning theirs. I’m privileged to be able to see amazing places in the world, but behind the scenes I have to fund all manner of boring but essential website related stuff such as hosting to keep the site up and running. I also spend hours researching and developing the best content possible. These hours are unpaid, which in the long run is sadly unsustainable. Having patrons would be a great help to keep the site going and also boost my confidence in knowing that I am producing content that is interesting and informative for my readers.

I hope that by joining me on this journey, you are taking the first steps to your incredible adventures!
Tiers
Inspiration
$1 or more per month
A dollar a pop. That's not even a coffee. But it's what it represents that's important. And what your dollar donation means is sooooo much more than a quick caffeine fix. Your $1 support gives me reason to write, inspires me during my writers block periods and pushes me to new levels of writing capabilities as I know you're there, waiting for me to create something cool for you to read that may inspire you to take the next step to fulfilling your travel dreams. But not only that. You'll also get access to my feed for patrons only, which will keep you updated with the latest going's on way before everyone els, plus live 'on the road' updates from trips I do whilst I am doing them (where internet access allows!) All for just a dollar. That's money well spent!
Digital Postcard
$5 or more per month
A pledge at this level means you not only get access to the patron only feed but you'll also get a digital postcard from me, of a snap I've taken from wherever I'm currently laying my pack. I love photography, so you'll get my favourite shot delivered to your inbox each month with a story behind it. 
Snail Mail Postcard!
$10 or more per month
Throw a tenner into the pot each month, and you'll reap the rewards - or at least, the postcards. Patrons at this level not only get access to the patron feed, but also get postcards sent to them once a month from wherever I happen to be. Sweeeeet!
Adventure Planning Assistance
$20 or more per month
$20 a month is a lot, eh? But what if it gave you access to answers to your adventure related questions? At this patron level, you'll have get to ask me an adventure travel related question which I will personally answer using all the skills, knowledge and experience I have gained over the years. If it's something beyond my remit, I'll ask one of my handpicked advisors who will be able to help you out. You can choose to have your question answered directly to your inbox, or both directly and on the website as a blog post with your name attributed. Fame at last! So if you're planning a big trip and need some help, this is the place to pick my brains. Each month that you're a patron means you get a question - that's some serious question time!
