Savannah left a comfortable life in Vancouver as a young teenager to backpack the world with her family and at 18 years of age had already traveled to 80 countries.
Savannah, as a 14 year old, and her family were shaken out of their comfort zone in Canada. With her mother, older brother and sister, she embarked on a four year journey across the world. They traveled and lived as locals on a very tight budget. The family was audacious, not shying away from the more challenging corners of the globe. They traveled overland in Pakistan and Afghanistan. They spent months in India. The family circumvented Africa. She literally grew up on the road, even meeting her fiance in Western Africa. Savannah has documented her incredible journeys in a series of books: Sihpromatum. Please listen in on her amazing adventures.
