Meet Katrina Mitchell, the one woman tour de force behind the Ottawa Alternative Travel Guide. Katrina tells us what drives her passion for all things travel - and Ottawa!
The Alternative Travel Guide - Ottawa has arrived! OnlyHostels.com has sponsored an initial printing of 1,500 map guides, which are available free of charge to backpackers staying at hostels, and an additional 30,000 will soon be produced.
Half Scottish/half Kiwi, I’m all fun! I try to enjoy myself as much as possible as I think it is very important to be positive in life. I left the UK (Scotland specifically) 6 months ago and at this stage I have no intention of returning. My main love in life is travel and that’s why I do what I do. (Oh and cake. Never forget cake). I set up a backpacker map in Glasgow before I left and I’m doing the same thing in Ottawa. I currently work in a hostel as well as the Backpackers Hostels Canada network.
