Gonçalo Cruz

Expert for Minimalistic Travel
Gonçalo is a Portuguese entrepreneur, writer and a travel leader who has the dream to visit all the countries in the world until 18 July 2035.

During his journeys he realized that the less he carried with him, the more fun he had. For that reason he decided to write 5 Travel Guides, including a guide specifically for packing: "How To Pack Smart of Backpackers".

Gonçalo has turned his passion into his purpose in life and he wants to show you how he managed to visit more than 50 countries in the last 10 years with just a carry-on luggage. He has looked into many sceptical faces when he was talking about how little money he has spent for his journeys, so he will share with you what he has experienced nevertheless, or perhaps exactly for that reason.
