Help us at Off Exploring

We don't have ads, but we do have running costs. Please help us.

Off Exploring was launched in 2003 by Andrew Ace for his own Australian gap year. It quickly caught on with travellers who recognised the benefit of having a proper record of their trips to look back on.

Over the years our users have uploaded millions of blogs and photos. We're determined to keep these precious memories safe online for years to come.

Unfortunately a big database means high running costs. We tried advertising but people hate ads. So we're asking you, our wonderful users, to make a small contribution towards the costs, and help us pay to keep your blogs available long into the future.
