About

Kristin MyersAt the Boseong Tea Fields, South Korea

Hi! Welcome to Kristin’s Backpack.  I’m Kristin and I began blogging while living abroad in Asia.

I had decided to take my University degree in Theatre on the road and incorporate it in ESL classrooms in South Korea.  That life changing experience from 2007-2011 led to my current desire to continue teaching English, a need for travel and adventure in new languages and cultures, as well as a deeper passion for theatre!

Now living back on home turf, working as a certified teacher, and volunteering with community theatre, my blog dives into these subjects as I attempt to organize and understand my own ideas and new experiences that the world still has in store.

About Me


Welcome to Kristin’s Backpack! I jumped on the blogging bandwagon in 2010 to share my Canadian-theatrical-backpacking perspective on my world adventures. With my return to Canada, I will continue to dig into my pockets and reflect on life as it has come to involve Teaching, Travel, and Theatre. Time to unzip the pockets!

This is what summer is all about- finished a book yesterday and am on to the next today.  I just opened The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill, which has been on my shelf for ages.  I have been extremely interested in reading accounts that stem from true stories in a dark history that is often swept to the side.  
At the same time, I have been listening to The Maze Runner series as an audio book and have been extremely captivated by the young characters’ circumstances and their view on the world.
