To me, if there’s one word to describe solo travel, it’s EMPOWERING.

As scary as it may seem at first, solo travel is the single most liberating, confidence-boosting, life-altering thing I’ve ever done, and has shaped me into the fun & fearless female I am today.  


Are you next?


I believe that every woman should go on at least one solo trip in their lifetime. The benefits are endless, but here are 4 standout reasons:

  1. You’ll discover a new found-confidence in yourself
  2. You’ll face challenges and come out a stronger person
  3. You’ll feel a profound connection with yourself, others you meet along the way, and the rest of the world
  4. Overall, you’ll become a more independent, fearless female

I have often considered traveling alone, but have never really done it although I have travelled a lot. I am kind of shy when I am alone, so I would tend to not communicate much. I’m afraid of acting like that. I am in Medellin ,Colombia at the moment.


Hi Karen!
Well, I am here to be your guiding light!!! I actually think that solo travel can be a great thing for a shy person because it forces you to communicate with other people…and typically it happens naturally! I’ve made really great connections in hostels and family-owned B&Bs where communication with other travels is encouraged. Medellin is especially a great place to solo travel because there are SO many other travelers and expats to meet. Other great ways to start conversations with people: asking someone to take your picture, chatting with someone at a coffee shop (TONS of cafes in the Laureles neighborhood), going on a walking tour (there’s a great one I talk about in this post) and my favorite – attending a language exchange (there’s a GREAT one tonight at the Colombia Immersion Envigado campus. You can also check out events going on at Ondas Hostel…all of this info is in my Medellin posts!)
I believe in you, Karen!! 🙂
