five fun facts about me

Solo female travel


I’m forever hunting for the perfect matcha latte (and sharing with you my discoveries).


I’m outdoorsy in the sense that I love being outdoors (hiking, swimming in lakes, surfing) and then returning to a cozy bed after a warm shower.


My two black cats name Frankie and Jax, make regular appearances on my Instagram stories when I’m home.


I’m a yoga teacher, but I decided that I would not make it into a business, it’s something I do for the pure enjoyment of the practice.


Perhaps most importantly, I have a love affair with Ireland, although I’m not sure Ireland knows.

Oh and I quit my job in 2017 to begin traveling for a year in 2018. I shocked myself by making it 10 months before the budget ran out from my adventures in South America and Europe.

At the end of 2018, I returned home to my cats and California to get a job to refill my bank account, build this blog, and continue to travel.

More than Just Bullet Points

Now those bullet points may make it seem like this journey has been super easy. That quitting my job and traveling solo was no big deal. But it was a big deal.

The two-year span between my first solo trip to Ireland and boarding that flight to South America (where I began my year of wandering) was filled with ups and downs. I questioned my decision almost daily. I wondered if I was just experiencing FOMO or thinking that the grass was greener. Deep down, I also knew that not taking this chance would be a major regret of my life. 

So I did it. I pushed past the fear and went for it.

And if you’re sitting there reading this thinking “good for her, but I could never do that”, I am here to tell you, you can.



There are tons of women traveling solo out in the world. I have met many people who left their careers or took sabbaticals in order to travel. I have met families traveling with their kids. And I have met couples traveling for months together. 

There is nothing “special” about any of us, except for one thing. Instead of wishing we could do it, we took action to make it our reality. We decided to make a change, no matter how many challenges we might face along the way. And you can do the exact same thing.

That’s what I’m here to help you do, whether you want to quit your job or just have the courage to travel by yourself, I’ve got your back.
