Hello! I’m Steph, a travel and photography blogger from the UK and the creator of Love From Steph, a blog about my travels and life as an expat in Canada.

I moved to Vancouver in 2019 in search of a new adventure after 6 years in London. This blog is a way to document and share my adventures in Canada. You’ll find lots of travel inspiration, insider tips and honest guides to help you plan your next adventure, whether that’s a weekend hike, a back country camping trip or a road trip around the Canadian Rockies. You’ll also find lots of practical information on moving to Canada.

Come and join me as I explore beautiful British Columbia and beyond.
