But what’s the story behind ‘Backpack With Brock’? Who is this guy?

The site was originally created in late 2009 when I, Brock, set out on a one year, solo backpacking adventure around the world. While exploring 36 countries on 6 continents, I video-blogged my journey and posted the videos here on the site. I lived with the Masai in Kenya, ate a cobra snake in Vietnam, climbed to Mount Everest Base Camp and was in Madrid, Spain as they won their first ever World Cup! It was without question, an Epic trip!
Since the maiden voyage, ‘Backpack With Brock’ has been expanding. In addition to continuing the travel blog that made the site what it is, Brock now provides Adventure Coaching for those considering their own adventure, can be booked to speak at a variety events and is even, writing a book.

With 36 countries under his belt, he hopes to explore and add to the list Korea, Rwanda, Russia and The Philippines while further indulging in his love affair with Kenya, Italy and Tibet!
Thank you for joining him as he ventures around the world and of course, take a minute and say hi to him.

Yours truly,
