I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list.

As you might have guessed, I'm Katy, or backpackkat to those of you who know me better.

I'm 29 years old, and I currently live in Toronto, Canada.

I've been to 10 countries so far this year, and it's only August. I haven't even used all of my 3 weeks of vacation yet. How? I can show you the best way to maximize the pitiful amount of time off from work we get in North America so you can really have it all: the career you worked so hard for, and the trips you dream about from your cubicle. Who says you can't have it all?

I hope this blog inspires you not to hold back and to travel, even if you only have a few days to do it. (Hint: long weekends are your friend!) 

If you want to reach me, backpackkatblog@gmail.com is best.
