Meet Kulsum Khan, Registered Social Worker and Globe Trotter

I am a visibly Muslim Pakistani Canadian backpacking enthusiast who loves learning about different cultures, exploring countries and making new friends and family members across the globe. I have had the privilege of visiting more than 20 countries and I continue to travel because there are just so many beautiful places to see and such little time! I hope to share my travel lessons and adventures to assist other female travelers in planning their own expeditions.
