Women inspiring women in Brussels

Traveling solo makes for a great filter. It makes you quick to detect those that are not worth your time, and it makes you highly appreciate thatĀ oneĀ person you truly have a connection with and enjoy being around. Let me rewind for a second. I work

420 in Amsterdam with my best friend

Yes, yes, I know..I am the ~solo female travel expert~, but sometimes a little companionship doesn’t hurt! My best friend of over ten years, Katie, had booked a flight to go to Amsterdam for 420. Now, I admittedly am not a huge pot smoker. I’m

Nice really IS just a place in France

I headed to Nice, France after the most perfect few days in Italy, and went into it a little disheartened (it’s slightly difficult to leave your dream destination). I studied French for five years in grade school, though I don’t get to practice much, I
