In 2017, I went on my first solo international trip to Colombia and fell in love with the country. I am super excited to announce the first trip of 2020. I will be headed to Cartegena, Colombia and I would like to bring new friends along with me.

Who is this trip for? This trip is for my sisters who want to create a bond with other women who have a love for traveling.

  1. Cartagena is definitely on my bucket list. I thought of doing a solo trip internationally but half of me is nervous and the other half is like just do it. I’d love to hear tips you have for people planning their first solo international trip.

    • You should def do a solo trip to 🇨🇴 Colombia. I felt very safe. Mill keep that in mind for a blog post idea 💡

  2. You look like you had an incredible time! I’m sure the pictures don’t do it justice though! I was just on a girls retreat in Tulum, Mexico last month and now I’m wishing I was back there eating good and soaking up the sun lol. Thank you for sharing!

    • Sounds lovely 😊 I’m seeing various pics from people traveling toTulum and it defmakes me want to go. So I’m sure you had a blast.

  3. It sounds lovely hun. I wish, I could afford togo. I recently lost my baby sis and it’s just plus size me, lol. No kids and an mental abusive divorce that left me mentally crippled almost 6 years. My last 3 years have been rebuilding my life and mental. I’m in a much better place. It’s nice to see you teach English when on your trips, too. I tutor dyslexic kids as a volunteer beung so myself, I advocate for me and those like me. Marketing is my medicine. How do you get to travel like you do? Is it your job? I’ve always regretted my cancellation of my senior year at NC STATE not traveling abroad bc I had to stay home and watch what cheating husband. I should have gone anyways, lmbo. It’s hindered my Spanish ever since. I love your boldness beautiful spirit Lady. I’m 51 and soon to be 52 in January. I follow you on the Gram. I love your page and adventures. Take care.

    • Hello Angela. How are you? I’m so 😢sorry for the lost of your sister. I’m so happy that you decided to leave that mentally depressing abusive relationship. I’m happy that you have decided to rebuild and heal yourself. I love volunteering and hope to do more in the future. The great thing as long as your leaving your never to old to travel abroad despite not doing it in college. You can always learn Spanish as well. Thank you so much for following me on IG, glad you enjoy 😉 my traveling adventures. I’m hoping my boldness will help others become bold and pursue there passions

  4. I would love to join this trip, but I can’t make these dates. I hope to see more of these trips in the future. I appreciate and admire what you are doing.
