About Me

First of all, thank you for your genuine interest in Tiny Footsteps Travel. I’m Kristin, a mom of 2, world traveller, teacher, writer and blogger. I’ve been to over 30 countries, lived in 7, and travelled with kids to more than 10.

After dreaming of having a travel blog for years, I finally decided to start Tiny Footsteps Travel in 2023. By then, it seemed that I was ‘late to the game’ when it comes to blogging, but I stuck with it and my blog has grown quickly in the short time since it launched – I appreciate people trusting me with their travel plans and aspirations.

The name, ‘Tiny Footsteps’ is meant to be a tribute to all of the travelling I’ve done with my children.

I travelled as a young adult before my kids were born to places like South Korea, Japan, Southeast Asia and Australia. My dream is to return to some of these places.

I didn’t want to give up travel after becoming a parent, so I’ve continued to travel worldwide with my two kids. They have travelled with me to places like the famous Uffizi in Florence, Celtic ruins in Ireland, to coffee farms in Costa Rica.

I started Tiny Footsteps Travel to share my travel tips to make it easier for people to find the information they’re looking for their destination. Rather than sugar coating, I like to be as honest as possible to give people a realistic idea of what to expect, as if they’re hearing it from a good friend. My blog is human-written and based on personal experiences.

In the first 6 months, Tiny Footsteps Travel reached over 10,000 monthly visitors. Many people have asked me how I achieved this so quickly in the competitive travel blogging world, so I explain that more here.

My home country is Canada, and I’ve travelled to places like:

I’ve lived in many places around Ontario, and can tell you some of the best places to live and visit. Ontario is the most expensive province, but also one of the most exciting in many ways.
