About Pina Travels

Hi, I’m Erin! But my nickname is Pina. I believe travel is an incredible way to learn not only about the world, but about yourself. The goal of this blog is to inspire you to travel, and to do so responsibly. I also host a podcast about responsible travel called Curious Tourism.

On Pina Travels, you’ll find guides that cover topics like how to avoid overtourism, tips for traveling sustainably, and unpacking travel privilege. You’ll also find guides that cover places all over the world, including my home province, Ontario.

My work has been featured in the Toronto Star, in October 2022 I was shortlisted for four Traverse Creator Awards, and in November 2022 I won a Traverse Creator Award for Best Written Piece. In October 2023, I was selected by a panel of judges as a finalist in The Influence Awards.
