A Little About Me (Fiona Scott!)
Where do I start? I used to think I was a boring girl that simply worked hard and had a bit of fun. Then I reached a stage in life where all I wanted to do was travel the world and discover new cultures, new geographies and the new me. This is when the ‘Babe With A Backpack’ became official!

I was born and raised in Vancouver British Columbia. I then spent 10 years living and working in the UK, escaping for only a few European adventures with wheels and heels. My caffeine addiction was at it’s peak and my social life was declining due to working too many hours. So I boldly decided to throw in the towel and embark on a 24 country solo tour around the world.

During and in between the multiple touchdowns and take-offs, my life dream came true; I reached out to the world and got even more in return. I have now set up a life back in Vancouver with a new direction as a writer, presenter and travel specialist. I spend a lot of time on my bike around town, and hanging out in Canada’s largest travel store, Wanderlust. But more importantly than any work, I continue to discover amazing events, people and ridiculous situations. This is what I learned during my initial travels, so this is what I continue to write about here as The Babe With A Backpack.

AND… I’m still a singleton in my 30's searching for Mr. Right so that’s got to be entertaining enough to read on isn’t it?!
The adventures continue…
