I Dream of Mangoes hiking in South Africa

Welcome to
I Dream of Mangoes

Hi, I'm Aimee! This is my travel blog: I Dream of Mangoes.
My blog provides vibrant and honest content, which details the challenging aspects of backpacking alongside the magical moments. I have been exploring the world for 10 years so far, and I have learnt many lessons along the way. I hope the stories in this blog will not only be filled with useful advice but also inspire you to strap on your backpack and follow your own curiosity into parts unknown.

The journey continues...

About Me

I Dream of Mangoes Profile photo

My name is Aimee and I am from Sussex in the UK. I embarked upon my first backpacking adventure straight from studying Zoology at university, a little more than 10 years ago.

With time, my destinations have become more adventurous, but my style of travel has remained the same:

Budget and eco-friendly, with a curiosity for the unusual and a desire to 'hang with the locals'.

Every few years I have returned to work in hospitality, saved up money, and travelled again - in between becoming a qualified Sommelier and Yoga Teacher.

I love animals, yoga, food, wine, hiking, and all things ocean, and even though there are challenges that come with full-time backpacking, every day I pinch myself that I am living my dream.
