Welcome Inside my Backpack!

My name is Matthias, I’m a French travel enthusiast, and I’m very happy to welcome you on this page!

I created this website in 2017, at the end of 12 amazing months in Australia. I wanted to share the unforgettable memories of that trip, but I soon realised that my thirst of exploring would not stop there. I visited many other countries in the following years and kept on publishing the stories of my travels… until today.
Have a glimpse inside my backpack and start reading!

Five years ago exactly, I was in the middle of an unforgettable road trip around New Zealand. I make you relive my itinerary day after day on Polarsteps!
