I’m Steph, a twenty-something photographer, travel writer, and the founder of A Nomad’s Passport as well as A Diver’s Passport. A website and business that is the result of my desire to travel, to explore different cultures, to find hidden gems, and to indulge in amazing food, all while trying to make a positive impact and to raise awareness for the need to protect our environment.
I have always been a restless wanderer that heard the call of the unknown. And when I got the chance, I decided to give in to my wanderlust and to explore the world. To see as much as I can and to learn more about different countries and cultures.
Since my first solo travel experience, I’ve taken every chance to explore new places and to find new outdoor adventures that allowed me to see and share the beauty of our planet. So far, I’ve been to 32 countries on 5 continents and the number is bound to rise. After all, I aspire to visit every single country and sovereign, as well as autonomous, territory in the world, while promoting a sustainable and ethical lifestyle and traveling.
I hope that the content I share makes you fall in love with our planet and all the beautiful spots on it and that you will be inspired to start your own adventures. Because ultimately, I am convinced that one of the most crucial steps towards protecting our planet is to love what we seek to protect. And what better way is there to fall in love with all life on our planet than to travel and see it yourself and to then share the stories that will in turn inspire others.

Why ‘A Nomad’s Passport‘?
The name is a combination of two things. On one hand, I started traveling so much, that my family and friends started to say that I am a nomad (years before I became a digital nomad).
And on the other hand, I started to always have my passport on me in case I had a spontaneous OBC delivery and unexpectedly had to fly to another country.
Therefore, my passport was always on the road and traveling too, which made it ‘A Nomad’s Passport‘.
Years of Adventures
Why I started a Nomad’s Passport
I believe that those that travel and are willing to explore the unknown will be rich, as it is not money, but experiences that make us a millionaire.
Sadly, many of the wonders that make us so much richer are currently endangered by climate change and other manmade catastrophes. Oftentimes, we don’t get to see the disastrous impact on our environment. It is therefore that we don’t realize how much we have to protect.
But the moment we travel or see pictures, we are reminded of all that is out there. We see endless beauty and the gaps left behind by all those things we could not protect. We gain unique experiences and feel the call to take action. To protect unique ecosystems like coral reefs and rainforests and to do what we can to safeguard them.
My website is all about sharing my adventures and pictures with you. Hopefully, it inspiring those of you that have yet to begin your journey around the world so you can see the beauty of our planet in all its forms. I sincerely hope that it will make you answer the call.
On here, you will find pictures, videos, travel reports, and recommendations, and chances are that you’ll discover your next adventure along the way.
I don’t know every step of my own journey, but I hope that it’ll eventually lead me to every country and sovereign or autonomous territory in the world so that I can share all the wonders and cultures of our amazing planet with all of you.
May all of us see the wonders we want to see
while ensuring that future generations have the same opportunity.
