[Download .mp3]

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.

    Thanks for Savannah on your show. It was really fun to hear my daughter’s interview and her perspectives again! Counting Countries is Awesome 🙂

    Hey Kevin!!! Thanks so much for such a big compliment. I rarely do podcast/radio interviews because I’m embarrassed listening to the sound of my own voice, LOL. So it’s always a relief to hear someone enjoyed it.
    And again thank you Ric for having me 🙂 🙂

      Wow, didn’t expect to get replies from you and Ric, thanks guys!

      Really inspiring me to travel to all these places – 193 is maybe too much but definitely want to aim to visit 100 countries!

          I have lucky enough to travel to 52 of the UN countries (+Kosovo), I used to teach English abroad which meant I was able to see the countries I lived in and some of its neighbours. I have never been on a long trip like yours though, most of my travel experience is either a 6months/ a year in a country or short trips to neighbouring countries for a few days.
