In 2013, Lydiane St-Onge took the decision to leave behind her promising real estate broker career, her daily routine and to sell all of her belongings in order to venture on an adventurous journey exploring the world, pursuing happiness and following her dreams. Her goals: to push both her physical and psychological limits, face her fears, travel in a responsible and engaged manner, meet with the people welcoming her in their community and, above all, inspire people to travel and see the world through different eyes.
The adventures of this dynamic born-to-be-nomad young woman for whom the world is the greatest of playgrounds quickly gained substantial popularity by drawing the attention of more than 118,000 people on her Facebook and Instagram page Lydiane autour du monde, where she documents and shares her experiences with the public. The effect is immediate and sponsors accumulate at a fast rate. There is no doubt: her decision to leave everything behind in order to follow her dreams resonates among several of her admirers. Now with her own TV show, a website to advise travellers, the publication of a book in February 2017, conference tour, several interviews, Lydiane is on her way to becoming the Province of Quebec's reference with regard to backpacking travel.
