About The Backpacker Mom

“Not all those who wander are lost…” J.R.R. Tolkien

Hey there! I’m Phylicia, but you probably know me as “The Backpacker Mom.” As a passionate wine educator and travel blogger, my daughter and I embark on exciting adventures worldwide, sipping wine and creating unforgettable memories together.

Wine Adventures and Beyond

Life is too short to confine ourselves to one place, so we blended my love for wine with our passion for exploration. With each journey we take, we dive into the local culture, savoring the diverse flavors and aromas of wines from vineyards across the globe.

Sipping Our Way Through the World

From the sun-kissed vineyards of Frane and Spain to the rolling hills of Napa Valley, I’ve sipped, swirled, and savored our way through some of the most picturesque wine regions on Earth. As we learn about the history and craftsmanship behind each bottle, we find joy in sharing our newfound knowledge with fellow wine enthusiasts and travelers alike.

A Mom-and-Daughter Duo on the Move

As a dynamic mom-and-daughter duo, we prove that exploration knows no age limit (she has been on planes since she was 6-weeks old). Whether we’re wandering through enchanting cobblestone streets, hiking through lush landscapes, or sharing laughter with the locals, our bond grows stronger with each new destination we discover.

Fun, Light, and Fueled by Wanderlust

This blog reflects our playful spirits and the wanderlust that fuels our journey. We embrace every experience with an open mind and a lighthearted sense of humor. As we share our adventures, mishaps, and hidden gems, we hope to inspire others to embark on their own wanderlust-filled escapades.

Join Us on Our Wine-Fueled Excursions

Come along with us as we uncover the world’s best-kept wine secrets, indulge in mouthwatering delicacies, and immerse ourselves in different cultures. Whether you’re a wine enthusiast seeking tasting tips or a travel lover needing destination inspiration, “The Backpacker Mom” has got you covered.

    I read very rarely as good about-pages as Yours. I love it. Thank You. I always read people’s about-pages first before leaving my comment. I want to know with which kind of people I am in contact when commenting. Hopefully You read also mine. LOL.
