don't be afraid to travel alone

If you're waiting for someone to come with you, you'll be waiting forever.

Ring, ring - your happiness, higher self, or you 2.0 is calling. Stop waiting for someone else to say "yes" to traveling! 

Solo travel is for everyone- you on a budget, you whose parents and friends think it's a bad idea, you afraid. That's right- you! (Channeling Oprah- YOU get some courage, YOU get some self discovery, YOU get some adventure). 

My journey as traveler started solo, with trips alone to Maui, Turkey, Iceland, Italy, France, Spain, and more in 2021-2022. Fun fact- I actually met the love of my life traveling solo in Istanbul, Turkey- a country that EVERYONE in my life was terrified that I was going to alone!
