Grown out of Lauren’s travel guide, Princess with a Backpack, published by Morgan James Publishers, 2011, started life a guide to backpacking in style and has evolved into a travel website dedicated to providing the ultimate in travel, design and luxury to discerning, savvy and stylish women.
“The idea for Princess With A Backpack came to me while I was waiting for my flight for 12 hours at a tiny airport in Paris. It was my last stop before heading home to Australia and in-between my second and third Diet Coke, the thought struck me that perhaps other girls could benefit from my travel experience, mistakes, and chutzpa. I do admit that I’m a princess, and there’s nothing wrong with that. It just means we “princesses” demand a little more, and we see obstacles not as problems, rather challenges we must overcome to basically get what we want out of life.”
