Meet Kristin Addis, owner and travel blogger at the well known travel blog, Be My Travel Muse. She’s been featured by the Daily Mail, Buzzfeed, Business insider, Huffington Post, and more. A former Southern California investment banker, Kristin left her job to trot the globe and work as a writer and blogger. What started with a one-way ticket to Bangkok ended up as an explorative adventure, ranging from the cliffs of Ireland to the glaciers of Patagonia. Kristin Addis of Be My Travel Muse is also a well respected solo-female traveler, who encourages women to enjoy travelling solo, and not to be afraid! Some of her safety tips can be found here. Many of us here at Travel Experts are also women that have travelled solo, and we are always happy to share what we’ve learned and help other solo female travelers plan safe and memorable trips.
“Traveling solo is marvelous”
Current life question?
Figuring out how to balance the travel and work, plus personal relationships. That is and always has been my struggle.
“Trust in yourself and go where you want to, even if it’s solo. “
Worst Travel Day?
“I’ve had a lot, but it was probably when I had traveled for 24 hours straight, then got on a motorbike of doom and the driver tried to scam me. I hadn’t eaten and I was almost delirious. It was a tough day but I’m glad I didn’t let it get to me too much.”
Best Travel Tip?
Worst Travel Tip?
Only go to ‘safe’ destinations or don’t travel alone. The world is not a scary place like we are all made to believe. Trust in yourself and go where you want to, even if it’s solo.
“Say yes as often as you can” -Kristin Addis
