About this site

work in progress

I created  divawithabackpack.com as a way to record all my past travelling experiences in one place: the diaries, the emails, the facebook posts, the half-started-never-finished blogs that I have littering cyberspace.

It is still very much a work in progress, so please bear with me!


Delves into the “Diva Diaries” (say that five times fast) to document the places I’ve been over my past (cough) years of independent travel


Back to the diaries to focus more on particular experiences, be they cultural, educational or just plain cray-cray.


I’ll record itineraries of my previous “big” trips for your reference. What worked, what didn’t, what was a #epicfail. They might serve as an inspiration for your own trip…or give you a roadmap for exactly what not to do!


Is everything else. Here I’ll blog generally on the experience of travelling, planning tips and tricks, random things I’ve seen or just good old fashioned rants (got to do it somewhere…).

Whether you can benefit from my experience, or just want to laugh at my crazy, I’m happy you are here!

Read, enjoy, comment, stalk.

Lots of love,

Diva x
