    Hi Kiki! As a solo female traveler (but mostly around Southeast Asia so far), I could totally relate to most of your anecdotes. I’ve been dreaming of making it solo in Europe next time, but I think I need to exercise more precaution in the future. This pandemic has got me researching more and preparing, hence I stumbled upon your post. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Safe travels! 🙂

      Hi Sherr! Thank you for the kind words. And as much as I love being spontaneous, doing your research and figuring out plans ahead of time is SUPER helpful! 🙂

    Hi Kiki,
    I’ve been reading your blog for a few years now!
    I’m super tempted to travel to Asia on my own, but I’m 34 and do NOT like the idea of being woken up at all hours in a dorm in a hostel… and i’m worried that a hotel would be out of my price-range? do you have any suggestions, please? thank you!

    • Many hostels offer private rooms! That’s one option. And depending on where you’re traveling, you might be surprised how cheap some accommodation can be. I still always check hotels too!


Cabo is always a good idea 🇲🇽

🚨 Now sharing all of my favorite hotels in one spot! 🚨
I have thousands of articles on my travel blog, which is great, but can understandably feel overwhelming if you’re looking for something specific like hotel recommendations.

Which is why I’m super excited to let you know that I created a Travel Shop on the Expedia App where I’ll be sharing curated Collections from my travels to over 75 countries, with my favorite hotel stays, my own bucket list hotels, and getaway recommendations like “the best hotels for a girlfriend getaway”.

It’s so easy to navigate — you can book directly from the Expedia App or save to your profile for a future trip.

I’m working on adding Collections for everywhere I’ve traveled, so be sure to bookmark my Expedia Travel Shop so you can easily reference all of my hotel recommendations in one place.

I’m so excited to share that @the_baby_abroad family travel blog is now live! 👶🏼✈️
I’ll be sharing countless articles addressing the most common travel questions I got throughout my pregnancy, Oliver’s early travels, and now that he’s a BUSY toddler.

Of course, I’ll also be sharing all of my tips for flying with a little one, airline reviews (with kids in mind), comprehensive travel guides on the destinations we’ve traveled as a family, honest product reviews, and everything in between.

But what I’m most excited about is that this will be a community resource with tons of guest authors. Raising a child is such a unique experience for every family, and I personally love to see how ALL types of families travel.

My hope is that The Baby Abroad will become a resource that represents all types of families exploring the world with their kids at every stage of life.
I couldn’t be more excited about this new adventure, and I hope you’ll follow along @the_baby_abroad! #thebabyabroad
