Behind the name: World In Your Backpack

Our mission is to promote travel around the world, keeping students and adults alike interested in educational and social, but fun travel.

The name World In Your Backpack encircles everything about us.  We encourage our audience to travel the world with a backpack full of memories, in other words, travel with the world in your backpack, hence the name.  We preserve our memories through photography, capturing every memorable moment and inspiring others to learn about and travel the world!

WIYB is all about giving back to the world, and at the bottom of every page there is a donation button that donates straight to a certain company.  Depending on the place that is on a specific page, there is WIYB’s “special” contribution.  It is a little blurb/website link about how you can give back to that local community that that page is about when you go there.  

No matter where you go, you will take a backpack.  Like us, you may have that one backpack that has been through every thing; the mud, rain, water, and dirt, but at the same time still holds a bucket full of memories.  Those memories can be from all over the world.  Therefore, that backpack has memories from around the world, and the world to you.  So the world is technically right there, in your backpack.
