10 Solo Female Travel Tips and Stories

1. Be alert, but not close-minded Trust me, I understand paranoia. I know what it’s like to have your thoughts spiral out of control and truly believe that you are going to be robbed or taken. I also know what it’s like to miss out on amazing experiences because of this paranoia. Yes, as a solo female traveler, you need to stay constantly alert and vigilant. But that doesn’t mean avoiding every person you come across! Sit with your fear for ...

Lyn and Fin Travel Ireland

By this point in my blog, you should know that I love sharing travel stories. One day, as I was mindlessly scrolling through Instagram, I stumbled upon a post of only words. So, obviously I read it. The author of this post is a good friend of mine here in London, Lyn. Lyn has a beautiful soul full of wanderlust and adventure, so I knew whatever this post was, it was going to be good. I hope this tale of travel in Ireland inspires and moves ...

Chef Laura’s Tearful Journey

You may have read the recent story by Laura that I heard while I was in Val D’Isere, France. Well, I’m here to tell you another story about a chef interview, told by a different Laura. This Laura was the incredible chef that worked in our chalet for the week. I am not joking when I say this was the most delicious food I have ever eaten! First off, I was not expecting four course meals. Second, she was absolutely amazing and such a sweet ...

The French Alps

Follow my blog with Bloglovin My job as a nanny comes with a lot of perks. One of the recent perks was the opportunity to travel to the French Alps for a week with the family I work for. Yes, I would be working, but hey, I’d much rather spend a week working in Val D’Isere than in London! When I first heard about the holiday, my initial thought was that this would be the perfect opportunity to meet others abroad and hear more stories for my ...

Simon’s Hostel Stalker

This story speaks to the true crime fanatic in me. The storyteller is one of my great friends, Simon. I met Simon through a pal that I worked with at Travel Joy Hostels (RIP) here in London. Simon and I bonded over our hostel living lives and our shared love of travel and I now consider him my token guy friend (I literally have no others). He is also the friend that I made sit with me in Holland Park while I held up THE SIGN. Simon’s story ...

Harriet’s India Obsession

This next story was told with so much liveliness and energy that it might be one of my new favorites. As I was sitting in Holland Park, a group of friends walked by and caught site of my sign. Two of them stayed behind to see what the deal with the sign was while the rest continued on. The woman, who’s name is Harriet, mentioned that she had just returned from India three days earlier and I immediately wanted to know more. The questions ...

Jonathan Tells the First Story

Here it is: the first story I heard from holding up the sign in Holland Park! So, as you read in the post about “The Sign”, this was the first story that any stranger had ever told me for my blog. As I was sitting there awkwardly with my sign, two guys walked past and did a double take. One of them nudged the other and told him to tell us a story! This was so exciting for me I nearly peed. The two of them walked over and we gave a quick ...

The Origin of the Sign

There has been an idea developing in my mind for about half a year now. The original idea was to start a blog about the travelers I meet around the world. This was a simple idea where I would travel to super cool locations and have the guts to talk to the strangers staying at the same hostels or eating at the same restaurants and hear all about their amazing journeys. The longer the idea sat in my mind, the more it developed. I didn’t want ...

Annie Writes a Book

There are some people that come into your life and it feels as though they have been there the entire time. For me, Annie DelSignore is one of those people, and she came into my life through a weird app called Bumble BFF. She is pure inspiration to my life. Our friendship is less than a year old, but it’s clear that our wavelengths are constantly synced no matter how far the distance. I know many of you are probably wondering, “Huh…Bumble ...
