There is something indescribably beautiful about a traveler's soul

There is something indescribably beautiful about a traveler’s soul – the need to wander, the desire for adventure, and the urge to experience more. And there is something infinitely more beautiful in the transformative power of travel itself; it broadens everything you’ve ever seen, heard and tasted. It influences your own beliefs, challenging your current understanding of the world.

For years, backpacking has been the model for experiencing transformative travel. But backpackers often have to resort to the 10-hour crowded bus ride to avoid the airfare, slog through the downpour to escape the pricey taxi, or deal with the noisy hostel room to save on accommodations. Backpackers take pride in the sacrifices they make to travel as often and for as long as possible, however this is not ideal for everyone, and is not enjoyable for most.

A lot of travelers can not, or do not want to make these sacrifices; that’s where we fit in. Built on the original foundation of a backpacker is the Flashpacker. We want the same authentic travel experience and want to be transformed. Flashpackers also seek off-the-beaten-path adventures, and live that carry-on lifestyle. But opt to sacrifice less so that they can love every second of their travels. They are a unique group of adventurers, chasing the experience of a backpacker with the mentality of a vacationer.

After a combined decade flashpacking around the world as digital nomads, we ended up in Seville, Spain for a week in 2019 where we realized two things. 1) There are tons of products we love to use to make our travels easier and better. 2) There was no single place to go to find them all. Flashpacker Co was born and we set out to build a trusted partner to help travelers around the world find the best travel gear.

At Flashpacker Co, our mission is to help the growing number of global flashpackers get the most out of their adventures. We do this by leveraging our experience and resources to create high quality advice and curate a collection of high value travel products so that flashpackers around the world can create a new type of travel - experiencing more by sacrificing less.
