About Me


I grew up mostly in the St. Louis, Missouri area (also living in Colorado for four years). When I was 23 years old, I moved to the Los Angeles, California area.

In 2016, at the age of 36, I hiked the John Muir Trail solo (220+ miles in the California High Sierra Mountains). It was a time of adventure and meeting new people along the trail that set into motion my desire to follow a new path. I quit my corporate job, sold my house in Los Angeles, and began traveling full-time.

I started my travels in the Pacific Northwest and drove through Canada to Alaska. After that, I spent a month in Thailand, a month in Vietnam, and then six months exploring Australia. Follow the adventure to see pictures/videos, and hear stories of people and places along the way.

I write about what it’s like traveling as a tall solo female, the feelings that come along with it (good and bad), the people I meet, and the thoughts that run through my head. I also share some beautiful pictures and history of the places I go! Each post is a quick 5-15 minute read. See below for some highlights.

I’ve had the fortune of meeting some of the most interesting and caring people on the planet. Here are just a few: 


As a single female, I’ve also tried to date while traveling, which has been challenging:
