About The Runaway Guide

My name is Leif (Layf), the runaway behind The Runaway Guide.

When I was 16 I ran away from home and explored the realms of Europe and the Middle East without a cent to my name.

It was a  journey that opened my eyes to the world and changed my life. I met enlightening people and immersed myself in various ways of life. I also learned some great techniques to travel cheap without sacrificing comfort.

On this site I share these travel experiences, so that you may be prepared, empowered and inspired to embark on your own journeys no matter what the budget.

Join me on my current journey around SE Asia. Follow me on Facebook and be a part of my monthly newsletter to get updates from the road.

Disclaimer: Due to the sometimes illegal nature of my guides, you are advised to read at your own risk. I assume no responsibility for any action that might be taken in my name or work.The Runaway Guide does not condone or encourage people under 18 to literally run away.
