Hey my name is Stephen Ninaber from Canada.
I grew up moving from one town or city to the next, as we moved a lot for my Father's work. This planted a bug within to me to see every part of the world and travel as much as I can. My first trip outside of North America began at age 16 to India, and since then at the age of 25 I have been to 28 countries.
