About Adventure Pending

We’re Adam and Ann, co-founders of Adventure Pending. To help others looking to indulge in global travel, we’ve founded Adventure Pending with one simple goal – to cover everything you need for your next adventure!

Adam and Ann on Hong Island

This site is a place for you to find all the best gear and travel recommendations tailored specifically to backpackers and other outdoor enthusiasts.

If you’re looking to know a little more about us, we’re a couple who set off on an around-the-world trip in October 2019, travelling Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia. Thanks to COVID, we’re currently hiding away in the Lake District, UK and building up our own corner of the internet. 

The dream of travelling the world isn’t one that goes away and with a handful of countries under our belts, the travel bug has well and truly bitten. We’re excited to share our favourite backpacking recommendations here, as well as the stories of some of the most influential travellers out there.
