What if you followed your heart to a life that made you truly happy?
When her daughter Emmie was six years old, Evie Farrell left her corporate career, sold or donated almost everything she owned, rented out her house and, hand- in-hand with Emmie, began an epic two-and-a-half-year backpacking adventure that would change their lives forever.
They camped on the Great Wall of China, hung in train doorways in Sri Lanka, swam with mantas in Indonesia, donated much-needed blood in Cambodia, spotted wild orangutans and pygmy elephants in Malaysian Borneo, prayed in Buddhist temples in Taiwan and were chased by monkeys everywhere. In their journey toward happiness and self-acceptance, they learnt more about each other and the beautiful world around them than Evie ever expected. Backyard to Backpack is the inspirational true story that will have you asking yourself, what might be if you took a chance, stepped off the path of expectation and created your own adventure?
