Welcome to The Rolling Pack Travel Blog!
We are Brittany and Tom- a couple who sold everything so that we could travel the world and make more time for the things we love.
We spent over two years traveling North America in a Toyota Dolphin motorhome, and we learned SO much about camper life and the freedom that comes with it!
After that we traveled across the globe to Southeast Asia where we spent 6 months exploring ancient temples, hiking through jungles, and relaxing at some of the most picturesque beaches on earth!
In 2020 (serendipitously, just before the pandemic hit!) we took a break from travel in order to reflect on all of our experiences up to that point. You can read more about that decision (and what it taught us) here!
In June/July 2021 we bicycled 650 miles of the Pacific Coast Bike Route from Astoria, Oregon to Mendocino, California! Check out our Complete Guide to the Pacific Coast Bike Route here!
Every summer we return to the Western United States for our annual trip to the Black Rock Desert for Burning Man!
We absolutely love the life we’ve built for ourselves, and we want to help you plan your own real life adventure!
Use the menu above (or keep scrolling!) for tons of practical information about camper life, backpacking Southeast Asia, Burning Man, and the reality of simplifying your life!

UPCOMING TRAVEL: In November 2021 we will make our way to Baja, Mexico for the winter. We have brand new standup paddleboards that we plan to take out daily on the beautiful Sea of Cortez!
In April 2022 we will head to Europe to walk the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage in Spain.
From there we will spend the rest of our EU visa time exploring!
I will be documenting all of this travel extensively here, on our Instagram, and on our Youtube channel!
