Help us at Off Exploring

Hi. We're Off Exploring and we do free travel blogs for travellers like us.

Off Exploring was launched in 2003 by Andrew Ace for his own Australian gap year. Before social media, it was a way of keeping in touch with home that wasn't possible otherwise.

Today, with social media everywhere, the major benefit of a travel blog is having a proper record of a trip to look back on.

Over the years our travellers have uploaded millions of blogs & 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.
