I’m a girl all about travel! Travel for the soul, travel for the mind, and travel by yourself!! My passion for traveling alone wasn’t something that was born from my first solo experience. It took a few tries going alone before I started to appreciate and love it!
Over the years, I’ve experienced a lot of personal growth and accomplishment derived from solo traveling. But, at first, I couldn’t enjoy the solitary time I had with myself. There was a large part of me that was convinced I would have more fun with a partner. Turns out, just going alone is just what I needed.
At one time or another, we can all find ourselves in a place in our life where it seems everyone else has it figured out. Maybe your best friend just got married. Perhaps your sibling just had a baby. Or, a co-worker just got promoted over you. You may find yourself feeling pretty lost and alone.
When you find yourself at a crossroads, there is no better time to travel by yourself! If you feel yourself searching for “what’s next”, then you know it’s time to travel.
After reading my posts, you will understand why sometimes in your life, the best thing you can do is travel solo. Let yourself grow and let yourself shine! I am excited to share my adventures with you!
Why My Site? What Can I Do For You?
I started this blog for a few reasons. The first reason being that I just love giving recommendations! Especially, when I find a great restaurant, or cool part of town! Sharing the hidden gems of a city to any traveler gives me joy!
The second reason is a personal one. I see this blog as sort of a digital diary of my life! My adventures caught on film can come to life here for me to reflect back on in years to come.
Also, I’ve secretly always thought it would be fun to be a writer. I love the idea of taking your laptop anywhere in the world and just creating something.
My third and final reason is a big one. I want to really ENCOURAGE and INSPIRE other women to explore the world. So what if you don’t have a travel partner!?
As someone who really struggled with the fact that at age 40, I’ve not been married, nor have kids. Both were things that I had desperately wanted in previous years.
I believe I can provide real support for other women who feel lost and unsure of their future. My For Solo Females section is filled with articles that highlight my struggles, how I overcame them, and what amazing things happened as a result.
Where DO I Come From and Where am I Now?
I grew up in a small town outside of Boston, Massachusetts, USA. I moved away from Boston when I was 23 to live in Los Angeles. After many years living in LA, I returned to Boston briefly, then moved back to LA.
I have a love hate relationship with Los Angeles, which I would say is pretty common. LA has a lot of reasons to love the city, but just as many to hate the city. Hello, traffic!
In 2012 I decided to wave goodbye to Los Angeles and move up to Seattle, Washington. Seattle is truly an incredible city that I feel so lucky to have lived in.
After 5 years of loving the Pacific Northwest I found myself longing to live in Europe.
In 2017 I was able to make my dream come true, and I moved to Berlin, Germany. Berlin has been my home for nearly three years now! I still absolutely love living here! But, if history is any indicated, I could find myself moving again. Though, I have no desire to do so anytime soon.
