Hi! I’ Julie the writer behind Why Not Ju

Explore the
world trough
backpacking and
following your dreams

I don’t believe in doing like everyone else. I decided to buy a oneway ticket to Latin America, and what was supposed to be a 3 – 4 months-long adventure, turned into 2 years. With this blog, I want to inspire others to follow their dreams, whatever they may be.

My tips to make the most out of your travels 


I believe in traveling slow, getting to know the locals, travel economically and preferably make a friend or 10 along the way. Feel free to reach out if you have questions or want to meet up!
