About Gabby Richardson

Hi! Welcome to my travel blog “Gabby’s Treks”.

I am a proud Canadian and an avid traveller. I have recently completed my Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in anthropology and minor in criminal justice and public policy at the University of Guelph. I have completed an honour’s thesis in anthropology about ayahuasca use throughout time – a project I found particularly interesting. I am currently taking a year off and pursuing my Master’s degree in fall of 2021.

I have previously written for Her Campus Guelph. I love interesting facts and keeping up with worldwide news. I have a great interest in international development issues and the present state and future of the Amazon rainforest. I have not been to the Amazon yet, but it is next on my list.

Not only will this site reflect my career interests and passions but also have a major focus on my travel destinations, stories and advice. Some of my stand out travel experiences would be my 2019 exchange semester in Copenhagen, Denmark, backpacking around Europe with my family, participating in an archaeological dig in Zorita Castle and camping in the Sahara desert. Ometepe Island, Nicaragua is a place my family and I visit frequently.

I hope this site leaves you inspired and it fuels your wanderlust.
