My name is Chris Orr and I’m learning how to travel the world.

I started I Don’t Have The Map as a way for my family and friends to keep up to date with my travels because I was too lazy to send emails to all of them and now I guess it’s for everyone…

I was introduced to the concept of “long-term” travel as a 13 year old when I spent four weeks travelling up Queensland’s coast from Brisbane to Cairns. With a taste for adventure it was only a matter of time, and money, before I started doing things for myself.

After graduating from university, I spent three months crossing Europe by train with my good friend David “Dave” Bowman. When the money ran out, we were forced to come home.

A year later, with more cash in the bank, I headed to North America alone to travel around the continent. Once again though, the funds dried up and I was forced to return home.

Now, I am living and working in Melbourne as I try to come to terms with life as a traveller. I hope to learn how to travel on a budget and travel for longer, go further and experience so much more.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading about my adventures and maybe even find inspiration for your own journey!

  1. Hey Chris, Just come by your blog – interesting and a great read…..I can hear your voice in my mind as I read.

    Hope you had a great time in NZ and the rest of the trip went well. Hopefully I’ll stumble across you (and the rest of the clan) again in the future.

    • Thanks for stopping by Jason, sorry I missed your comment for so long!

      Won’t be long before I’m up to the Abel Tasman and you become a feature!

      Hope to see you again soon.

  2. You have really great posts! I actually started my (first) blog for the same reasons – back in the days when people wrote long, exhausting e-mails it was just too much work to re-write the same story to five people. I’m glad you’ve shared your adventures though))

  3. I think I am a little jealous of your traveling. πŸ™‚ Maybe I will do a little through you. πŸ™‚
