A solo mum, a six year-old and a life-changing adventure.Library: Helensvale Map
Join author Evie Farrell as she talks about her new book 'Backyard to Backpack', her inspiring true story of how as a solo mum, she traded life in the suburbs to travel the world with her six year-old daughter.
Alone with her young daughter in Sydney, Evie agonised that her work, mortgage and responsibilities were keeping her and six year-old Emmie from spending enough time together. Her solution? To take to the road. She left her corporate career, sold or donated almost everything she owned, rented out her house and, hand-in-hand with Emmie, began an epic backpacking adventure that would change their lives forever. They had one backpack, savings that were meant for a kitchen renovation, and a desire to
and make the most of every precious moment they had together.
Evie runs the wildly popular blog and Instagram account 'Mumpack Travel'.
