A Modern Wayfarer is a global travel blog for the Modern Gypsy,
an Endless Search for Extraordinary Experiences.

It is for desirers of wander and seekers of the unknown,
those young or young-at-heart creative nomads who feel there’s too much beauty,
too much amazement in the world to stay still for too long…

a modern wayfarer about

Call her a nomad, but adventure keeps AMW creator Stefanie Acworth sane. After visiting 173 cities in 45 countries over 4 continents during the last few years, she has well and truly been bitten by the travel bug – and it’s chronic.

After graduating from a Bachelor of Journalism and Masters of Communications at the University of Queensland and QUT respectively, Stefanie worked for well-respected media and marketing companies around the world, with one-year stints in London and New York, and four years in Melbourne. She’s currently based on the beautiful beaches of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia – when she’s not frolicking all over the place that is!

In January 2013 Stefanie quit her corporate marketing job and started Canvas Communications, offering copywriting, marketing and social media management to a growing clientele of over 10 companies. As a freelance communications specialist, Stefanie has the freedom and wherewithal to operate anywhere with a comfy chair and a good WiFi connection – the perfect recipe for working travel!

Also a published writer for over 9 years, Stefanie wanted to marry her love of travel with her respect of the written word and thus A Modern Wayfarer was born. What started as a little side-project in March 2013 has grown into a thriving travelogue with a dedicated following that continues to grow every month. In May 2014, Stefanie became a Contributing Editor at The Expeditioner.com, one of the world’s most visited travel sites for the avid traveler. She is also the ongoing travel editor at TheVine.com.au.

Over the past two years, Stefanie has worked with and attended Media Familiarisation trips with travel boards/tours including Discover Los Angeles (LA Tourism); Discover Palm Springs (Palm Springs Tourism); Visit Copenhagen; Cebu Pacific Airlines, Tourism Philippines, Visit Berlin; Sail Croatia/Med Experience; Topdeck Travel; Cancun Travel; Visit Malta, Visit Tuscany; United Airlines and a plethora of luxury and boutique hotels around the globe.

On the rare occasions she’s standing still, Stefanie is plotting her next adventure to far-away places just so she can relay her unique (and sometimes borderline crazy) experiences onto the digital pages of the wonderful world that is A Modern Wayfarer.
