Hi, I'm Steph and welcome to my little corner of the web! I am so glad you're here!! I created this blog two years ago, but I've been blessed with the 'travel bug' for a lot longer...In fact, I've had the privilege of visiting over 40 countries so far! I'm currently a woman obsessed, trying to find my way between 'everyday life' as a PhD student in Ontario, Canada and life on the road as a (mostly solo) traveler. I've backpacked on my own through India, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Ethiopia and most recently Colombia - and guess what? I was completely safe and I've never been happier! My goal through this blog is to inspire other women (and men) that they can travel too! So whether you're on a budget, have limited vacation time or just don't know where to begin, I want to show you that it is possible live your dreams - one adventure at a time!
The Pink Backpack began as a space for me to share my travel adventures and connect with other travelers, but it has grown into so much more! I never ever dreamed that I would inspire others to travel or turn my passion into a business. I am only able to do what I do because of readers like you, so please reach out and say hello; I would LOVE to hear from you! For business inquiries, please see my 'Work with Me' page or Media kit.
