Backpaco

Hi, my name is Frank and my passion is traveling and immersing myself in different cultures. So far I have visited more than 60 countries and I don't plan to stop any time soon.  Traveling long periods of time used to be much easier when I was a student but my profession in IT gives me the flexibility I want to keep pursuing this passion while also having a great life balance.

Paco comes from my 5 month trip around South-America as Colombians used Paco as a diminutive for Francisco. I kept that nickname ever since.
