Why I (mostly) Travel Solo

A lot of people ask me why I travel solo. And, I’ve probably partially answered this question in past blog posts. But here’s the complete answer. All in one post. First, the obvious. I'm single. I decided not to wait till there’s a guy in my life to see the world. Would I love to …

International Travel on a Budget

International travel on a budget is easier than you might think! Prior to this year, I’d reluctantly dismissed all thoughts of solo travel abroad – convinced it was too dang expensive.  And yet, I now stand (err, write) before you having taken two solo trips to Europe since January! For Paris, I spent just under …
