When Australian journalist Michael Turtle quit his job to travel the world, he started to document where he was going and what he was getting up to… and boy, are we glad he did. His website even has its own interactive map, so searching for your next destination has never been easier. 

We loved his piece on The World’s Oldest Backpacker – we can only dream of being that awesome at 89 years old!
