Our Story

Like a lot of people nowadays, we were looking for an alternative to working the 9-5 back in our home country. So, we headed off to the other side of the world in the hopes of finding a new vision and new path to bring back home. Along with our journey, we came across a lot of struggles and difficulties. This made us come up with the idea of writing a book originally named “Failure, Success and Goals (Backpacks to Beer Taps)“.

Since writing the Book, FSG Travels has been formed. The Idea of FSG Travels is to help and Encourage others to go traveling or even just see more of their own country. Unlike other travel writers, we enjoy selling you the struggles of travels as well as the success.

We Continually Show Our Failure, Our Small Success, and Massive Goals. To show that you’re not alone, in the world of travel.
