About Me

Hi, Iā€™m Stephanie from Liverpool in England.


As a child I was inquisitive and I loved learning about anything and everything. My first ambition was to be a nurse, then a geologist, Greenpeace activist,Ā  a dentist and I finally settled upon becoming a podiatrist.

I was happy and successful but I knew that something was missing from my life. I decided that Travel was missing so I gave up all that I knew to plan an epic career break in Asia and Oceania.

During my RTW trip I travelled to 10 countries in 10 months. I travelled around South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand overland. I also visited awe inspiring Dubai and charming Sri Lanka.

Before discovering travel I was a wimp and a diva, I was scared of taking risks and always took the safe road in life. One of my aims of travel was to push myself out of my comfort zone constantly. I now have a PADI licence, Lived with a crazy ex monk for a week, have rode an Elephant and a camel, canoed and kayaked across the world, attempted body-boarding in Surfers Paradise, jumped out of a plane 12000 feet high, bungy jumped at the worlds first bungy site in Queeenstown and trekked through the Thai jungle, staying with Burmese hill tribes on the way.

I am no longer a wimp!




Travel is amazing and life changing but travelling alone is not always easy. I will tell you the realities of travelling the world as a solo female travel. Every post is honest and from the heart.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you like about travelling long term, alone as a female. I will answer every question honestly.
