Sawubona from the solo traveller!

Being a female solo traveler can seem daunting and scary at times. However, I have often found it to also be incredibly empowering and liberating! I started this journey in October of 2022 with the clear intention of finding my path and purpose in life. As time went on I realized it wasn’t enough, I wanted to share my experiences with somehow. So here we are now! 

Navigate the blog

Please have patience with the state of the webpage, I am building it myself. If you want to follow my personal journey and story I would recommend reading the blog chronologically. If you are more interested in a specific area, feel free to jump around. The blog posts are so far categorized by city and country.

The posts vary from personal stories, experiences and tips being a female solo traveler to in depth portraits of local initiatives, events, organizations and the people behind them. I hope you enjoy!
