  • Description

    Hello, I’m Shams! Originally from Montreal, Canada but I call home wherever me and my backpack are. Currently that’s the Northwest Territories:)

    Within the past few years I’ve traveled a fair bit, encouraging my curiosity to discover our planet and how we may live a more harmonious life. Sustainable living is something I am very passionate about and forever invested to continue learning. I am a huge nature lover I am my happiest when i get to spend lots of time outdoors. One of the main reasons i like to travel is to learn new skills revolving on the outdoors and leading a self-sufficient lifestyle.

    I’ve done four workaways in the past from working at a family farm, to shooting promotional content for a boutique hotel, help plaster a house using natural resources and I am currently living in a farm in the Northwest Territories learning about sustainable living and taking care of animals (chickens, goats, sheeps, cows, rabbits and geese). I love this way of travel because I get to really be with the locals and learn in depth about their lifestyle.
