Hi, I’m Steph.
I first caught the wanderlust bug in my teens. I think this stemmed from years of being asked “where did you go nice this holiday?” by teachers at secondary school. The other kids would say Spain and France and America and the like and my answer would always be, “Wales. Again”.
Not that I didn’t like Wales. It was fun, still is. But my classmates were getting to see a bigger picture of the world and I wanted in on that too. As soon I was old enough I began putting away savings for future travels. My ultimate dream was always to put together enough money to hike to Machu Picchu in Peru. Finally in 2013 I lived my dream and backpacked across South America, and this was my blog along the way. I’m now building upon it since returning home with stories and travel tips from my travels.
I’m also a freelance illustrator, designer and artist. I take on creative projects through my website – www.stephaniesekula.co.uk.
