About Us

Life Before Work Travel was founded in 2007 after Brady, the owner, spent an incredible year abroad and fell in love with Thailand. The rest is history but Brady fell in love with a special way of living life. By putting life before work! Embrace every second and capture the moment; live your life! Our company mantra is “travelling is not reward for working, it is education for living” we believe this and try to incorporate it into our daily lives. Where else can you learn the beauty of a sunset on a deserted white sand beach, or the spirituality of thousand year old temples, or how the air smells while riding an elephant. Not from behind your desk in a cubicle that’s for sure. Our mission is to offer the best backpacking tours around and our second mantra is “we do backpacking tours right” no ifs ands or buts about it! While on an LBW Tour you will not waste any time and all you need to do is show up for a good time. We take care of all the details so you can experience the best of the location you are visiting whether it’s the white sand beaches of Bali or Thailand, the Hill-tribes in Northern Thailand, or school children eager to learn English on one of our volunteer tours. At Life Before Work, travel is more than just our job – it’s our passion, and it’s this passion that we impart to every traveller that wants to get the most out of the countries we visit. We know how travelling works, and we use this knowledge to make the tours as painless as possible for you – so you can find what makes our locations so special without needing to worry about all the logistical hassles. LBW affords you the safety and security of traveling in a group without stepping on your toes. We’re not here to hold your hand while you cross the street, we’re here to let go of your hand as you zip line through the jungle! We’ve designed all our tours to be affordable, immensely fun, and ultimately one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll ever embark upon.
