About you

I’m a millennial solo traveler who took a chance at pursuing wanderlust after feeling “stuck & stagnant” for years. My hope is to inspire other young women to do the same and experience new perspectives through solo travel!

Why do you travel and look for adventures?

Life experiences (especially as a young woman in my 20’s) and building meaningful connections with others around the world are far more valuable to me than any material item. Life’s what you make of it, and I want mine to be full of new experiences I would never have had otherwise.

What kind of adventures do you look for when you travel?

I seek those “once in a lifetime” adventures that I’d never get to experience anywhere else! And ones that leave me with a deeper appreciation for the land and culture.

What’s your go-to travel hack?

Take an empty water bottle to the airport and fill it up after getting through security.

Got any gear you can’t travel without?

Honestly, my earphones!

What destination are you eager to go back to?

Thailand for sure!

How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?

There have been numerous times I’ve been approached by random men asking for a photo with me. Always say no! Although it may feel like a “paparazzi moment” (since they’ll typically complement your hair or appearance), there’s almost always a darker underlying motive.

What’s the best way to experience a destination like a local?

For me, it’s been teaching abroad. In doing so, I got to live and work within the community without the influence of other tourists. This experience really gave me a deeper appreciation of the culture and allowed me to develop organic relationships with locals!

What’s your favourite word in another language?

khaimook (boba pearls)
