Twipper of the Week: Audrey Bergner from That Backpacker.

unnamed (1)

Current city: Kingston, Canada

Age: 27

What makes you interesting: I’m incredibly curious about the world and the cultural diversity that exists on our planet. Combine that with my need to document it all and you’ve got yourself a camera-toting, videocamera-wielding travel blogger who perhaps carries a little too much technology wherever she goes.

Total countries visited: Somewhere around 40.

Most magical place on Earth: Wadi Rum. There’s something mesmerizing and incredibly serene about the Jordanian desert.

What does “travel” mean to you: Travel is an opportunity to understand people better.

The most useful thing you have brought on a trip: A good book to pass time. I like reading about other people’s journeys when I travel, so I really enjoy anything by Paul Theroux.

Your favorite app to use during your travels: GoogleMaps. Pretty standard but I need it to find my way around.

Your most favorite travel memory: Coming around the bend and seeing Machu Picchu for the first time. It was shrouded in clouds, but there was enough of a break to reveal the Lost City below. It was pure magic!

Next travel destination: South Africa! I’m spending 3 weeks on a road trip from Johannesburg to Cape Town.
