How to Find Your Soul Tribe While Traveling

  When I first set off to travel the world on my own, my biggest concern was loneliness. I wondered if I’d be wandering the streets of a city, exploring deserted beaches daily, and sitting in a restaurant in the evening, all on my own.     As soon as I showed up at my...

Why Most Women Don’t Travel Alone

  Over the years I’ve heard more women than you could imagine say that they want to travel the world on their own. And yet, many never make it happen.   Perhaps they don’t have the money. Or they can’t take the time off. Or traveling alone sounds dangerous, boring,...

What Can a Girl Do About Cat Calling?

  I’ll put money on the fact that every single woman reading this post has been cat called at some point in her life.     The first time it happened to me, I was ten years old walking home alone after swimming at the lake with my friends. I was fully clothed, scrawny...

How to Feel Safe as a Woman Traveling Alone

  I’ve done some pretty stupid things over the years while traveling. In fact, sometimes I wonder how I’m still alive, relatively sane, and still have all of my limbs intact.   I’ve gotten a ride home drunk at 2am in Panama with police officers carrying machine guns....

How to Travel as a Woman Alone in Morocco Without Going Insane

  After just one week traveling on my own in Morocco, I was already beginning to lose my mind. I’ve traveled solo for three years, all over the world, yet nothing prepared me for the relentless harassment I encountered.     No matter what I wore, every man I passed in...

A Love Letter From a Woman Who Travels Alone

  I want you to know that I am happy. I am so happy that sometimes I wonder if my heart might explode. I am happy with my freedom and I am happy all on my own.     But sometimes I think about you.     I think about how despite how much I love being alone how nice it...

Is Puerto Viejo Safe?

  I remember having Chinese dumplings in an upscale shopping mall with my ex boyfriend and excitedly telling him about my plans to rip off my high heels and go live in the Caribbean jungle. Riding the wave of attachment and detachment from this man for the last three...

There are Many Shades of Black

  Sometimes shifting your perspective shifts everything. That’s a lesson I learn again and again on the road.     After more than a year away, in Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, the USA, and along the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, I returned to Puerto...

What Still Scares Me

  “You are so brave.” People often say after hearing stories from my recent travels.   “You have so much courage to do what you do.” They affirm when I discuss my life plans.   In fact many times I’ve been called fearless.   But friends, guess what? I get scared too....

How to Survive a Taxi Ride in Latin America

  A few days ago en route from Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica to Granada, Nicaragua I found myself once again screwed over by a taxi.     The details are irrelevant. He lied. I believed him. Why?!?!!! I ended up in a less than desirable situation stuck at the Nicaraguan...

What Every Girl Should Bring Beach Backpacking

  Sometimes I wish I could roam the earth in nothing but jungle leaves. I feel the most free without anything to carry and with next to nothing on.   Costa Rica will do that to a girl. It's a country where you need little to be happy and between the monsoons, the...

What I Think About Machismo

  I will never forget the first time I felt small, like I wanted nothing more than to hide, like I was less of a person, because of the attention of a man.   I was twelve years old walking home from a day at the lake with friends. It was late in the afternoon in the...

What Makes a Great Travel Companion

  Two days ago I bid farewell… for the second time… to my travel companion and childhood friend Marissa.   The first time was in Costa Rica, when she departed on her journey to Nicaragua and I stayed behind. We reunited in Granada after I spontaneously hopped a bus...

Why I Feel Safe Traveling Alone

  On more than one occasion I've had family members, flight attendants, hotel receptionists, and many absolute strangers, gasp at the idea of me traveling on my own. "You're going where?! Alone?!" They warn me of the dangers of countries they've never visited and...

Traveling the World as a Woman

  I often hear when traveling on my own...   "Isn't that dangerous?" Probably. What isn't?   "Um, how do they treat women over there?" Like women?   "Well, do not, under any circumstances, fall in love." No promises, but I'll do my best.     Traveling alone, as a...

On Being Alone

  When was the last time you were truly alone?     Alone with your mind. Alone with your heart. Alone with your breath.     Away from friends. From family. From lovers. Away from your phone. Your facebook. Your blog. Away from the television. The internet. A book.    ...
