Hey there! I’m a Tennessee native, but I’ve made Washington, D.C., my home base since I graduated college. So far, I’ve visited over 50 countries, starting with Japan when I was 20 years old. Since then, I’ve been helping other small town (and big town) folks find the confidence to travel the world.
In this podcast episode, I talk about how travel can be a force for good, anywhere you go. Jillian and I discuss how travelers can experience authentic culture on a reduced budget, the impact of supporting local businesses, and how to spot look-a-like products which aren’t benefiting local communities.
In this episode, Addie and I talk about taking your first solo trip. I took listeners on a deep dive into my first solo trip, to Japan, and how solo travelers can have the confidence to take that first trip.
In this podcast episode, Eric and I talked about how I managed to keep my travel blog alive during the pandemic and pivoted from traveling several times per month to writing an entire book series about solo travel experiences in just a few months.
