A blessing that initially appears to be a curse.
Hey! I’m Savannah Grace! I’m a 26-year-old Canadian travelling to every country in the world (111 so far) to become the youngest female to visit them all.
I was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada and have been living in The Netherlands for the past 7.5 years.
I didn’t catch the travel bug on my own, it was more like my family stuck it in my back pocket and I’ve been stuck with it ever since. As a FAMILY we travelled to 80+ countries, and collectively we have visited 153 countries. Sister Breanna Watkins has visited 107 countries, I have visited 111 countries, Maggie-the-Mom has visited 116 countries and brother Ammon has visited 137 countries. We want to be the FIRST FAMILY where each member visits EVERY single country in the world. We want to inspire others and show you that ANYTHING is possible, and family is FOREVER.
I have been actively documenting my travels for more than a decade, starting when I was just 14 years old writing on our family blog www.watkinstravel.blogspot.com . I am the founder of #TRLT (The Road Less Travelled) Twitter chat which now regularly ranks as one of the top travel chats in the world.
Since the release of my bestselling travel series Sihpromatum, which includes “I Grew My Boobs in China” and “Backpacks and Bra Straps”, I have gained a readership of 100,000+ and am currently working on Vol. 3 “Rusty Tracks and Booby Traps”.
“Sihpromatum is my memoir series about one family’s four-year backpacking adventure around the world. The first instalment, “I Grew My Boobs in China” is the beginning of an intensely fascinating, sobering, and emotional memoir of an introspective and innovative family adventure.
In 2005, Savannah Grace’s world is shattered when Mom unexpectedly announces that she and her family (45-year-old Mom, 25-year-old brother, Ammon Watkins and 17-year-old sister, Breanna Watkins) would soon embark on an incredible, open-ended journey.
When everything from her pets to the house she lived in are either sold, given away or put in storage, this naïve teenage girl runs headlong into the reality and hardships of a life on the road.
Together as a family they travelled on an extreme budget for four years and visited 80 countries. Now each of the family members have visited over 100 countries, combined they have visited 143 and still adding. This is a tale of feminine maturation – of Savannah’s metamorphosis from ingenue to woman-of-the-world. Nibbling roasted duck tongues in China and being stranded in Mongolia’s Gobi Desert are just two experiences that contribute to Savannah’s exploration of new cultures and to the process of adapting to the world around her.”
PS. Consider the possibilities of sihpromatum in your own lives! When times get tough, know that something better is on its way.
