After working in corporate America for 15 years, I quit my job, sold my house in Los Angeles, and packed up my Subaru Outback and hit the road. 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 am currently exploring Australia. Future locations might include: Eastern Europe, New Zealand, and Japan. Follow along to see pictures/videos, and hear stories of people and places along the way.
I write about what it’s like traveling as a 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.
You can follow if you’re a WordPress user, or you can follow along by using your email address. The follow option is halfway down on the home page. If you’re a new reader, I recommend that you start from the beginning so you can see the sequence of events.
You can also read about some tips I’ve shared on How to Combat Loneliness When Traveling Solo.
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or just to say “hi”! I love interacting with people!
