Hi there! I’m Steena Holmes.

Travelholics unite! Join me as I pursue my passion to travel the world, explore back alleys, visit quaint shops, and cruise in style—all the while imagining the stories I can write in each town I visit. Whether it’s people watching while sipping my coffee in Paris, taking a chocolate tour in Belgium, visiting Christmas Markets in Germany, or walking along the ruins of Pompeii… every trip I take is a dream come true.


Growing up as a small town Canadian girl, there wasn’t much to do but ride your bike, hang out on the beach, and daydream. I discovered my passion for traveling as a teenager where I fell in love with the sheep-covered hillside, old castles, and romantic history of Scotland and England. I dream about Tuscany and touring small town shops in the south of France, of placing my toes in the ocean, and experiencing history first-hand. I love to wake up to the Rocky Mountains, will forever enjoy the taste of coffee and chocolate, and can’t imagine the day when a story doesn’t unfold in my heart.
