    Episode 38: The Secrets to Long-Term Travel Abroad

    Have you ever dreamed of putting everything in storage, packing a simple bag, and embarking on year-long adventure? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel and live life on your own terms for an extended period of time? Life (and travel) is all about the experiences we have and the memories we make. Often times we find ourselves holding back on our dream experiences because of our own fears. However, with a little preparation and a whole lot of passion, you can truly make anything happen for yourself. On today’s episode, we are going to chat with my friend Kayleigh, who has been traveling the world for the past year. Not only will you hear about her incredible journey but, she will share with you how she was able to make this dream, a reality and create an experience of a lifetime.

    Episode 36: Traveling Solo as a Digital Nomad

    If you were given the opportunity to take off tomorrow and live the life of a digital nomad, would you do it?

    In today’s episode, by sharing her journey into the life of a digital nomad and her solo traveling adventures, our guest Naomi Harris will answer all that and more.

    Episode 35: Unspoken Truths About Solo Travel

    Episode 35: Unspoken Truths About Solo Travel

    If I told you I didn’t cry during my first solo travel experience, I would be flat-out lying. The fact is, solo travel can be hard, overwhelming, and leave us wondering “what the hell did I do”. Regardless of how many hard moments I have faced during my solo travels, I would never change nor do I regret any of my experiences. Today's episode is not to turn you away from traveling solo however, I feel it is extremely important to be real and share the unspoken truths about solo travel. Basically, it's the sh*t no one talks about.

Scratching my travel itch!

I love Sara’s Solo Travel Woman Podcast! She has wonderful recommendations! When I go in a solo trip or a trip with my gal pals, will definitely listen to an episode (or few!) to prepare! I highly recommend her podcast. The content is very engaging and helpful. Way to go Sara with 15K listeners! Cannot wait for many many more!
