About Us

The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. – Saint Augustine

Hello and welcome to Flashpacking Duo! We are Dom & Claire—partners in life and travel. Travel is our passion, but we are drawn to far more than the popular tourist attractions (although we enjoy those too). We are passionate about finding the hidden gems locals know and love. In order to find these hidden gems, we need more than a week or a couple of days of travel, but enough time to really engage. Enough time to see what makes each destination truly unique, and we gladly take this time when we travel.

Whether Near Or Far, The Reasons To Travel Are Many!

There are many reasons to travel: to fulfil your desire to explore, to view a revered attraction, to immerse yourself in a culture that differs from your own, or to simply break away from your everyday life.
The challenge that many of us face when it comes to travel, is in finding both the time and the budget to travel as frequently as we desire. We faced this same challenge too, but haven’t let it stop us from slowly but surely backpacking our way through the countries on our Travel Bucket List.
