Hi, my name is Christina and I’m a solo traveller!
I gave up the office job and hectic London life to travel and work on the road in September 2017. I’ve been called brave, intrepid, crazy, and young-at-heart. All I know is that I had had enough of commuting and being tied to a desk. So I strapped on my backpack and swapped my high heels and office suit for my sneakers and a life of working on the road. And I haven’t looked back!
I’ve been a life-long traveller. I got on my first flight when I was 15 days old. And so it came as no surprise to those who know me when I told them I was going freelance to travel solo and make a living while travelling, working on the road. I needed to see more of the world and travelling solo with my laptop was the best way to do it. There is a growing number of digital nomads on the road, all of us making the most of a better-connected world, good WiFi, and flexible working. I know I’m not the first to do this and I’m certain I won’t be the last.
What do I do?
I am a copywriter, proofreader, and environmental consultant, all rolled into one. I’m always looking for ways to give back. That could be through volunteering, supporting community projects and disadvantaged people, or helping others make their travel dreams come true. Like travelling solo!
Can this work for me?
I created this site and blog because I know there are many others out there – especially women – who want to travel but are afraid to go solo. Use this site to get a flavour of what a place is like and how I’ve navigated my way through it. Use the resources, tips and tricks to help you prepare for a trip and land on your feet. Find the confidence to travel solo and enjoy it!
If you want to know how I managed the work transition, have a read of my recent article for the Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading: Proofreading my way around the world.
Who should read this?
Anyone! The emphasis is a little heavier on solo female travellers and those over 35-ish. There are fewer of us around, and the challenges we face are a little different to those someone in their twenties comes across. But the site is here to inspire and encourage you to get on the road, no matter who you are, how old you are, how much time or money you have. I travel solo for the most part, but I am rarely alone unless I choose to be.
