Hiya! I’m Anastasia. I’m a big scaredy-cat.
I’ve been wanting to travel the world since I was in high school, and read Tales of a Female Nomad by Rita Golden Gelman (affiliate link), a really awesome travel memoir by a children’s author turned traveler. Rita went to foreign countries and made friends: she got to see new stuff, eat new foods, meet new people, and she had a great time!
As a natural homebody, I’ve never been inclined to just jet off and have adventures. It takes a lot of work for me to want to leave my house, and then add to that my introverted nature, plus fear of the unknown– and it basically means I have yet to even leave the United States.
Now that I’m 30, I decided that enough was enough. I’m going to work on developing my confidence and get over my crybaby fears of new stuff, and I’m going to do it with all of you. I can’t be the only person who has dreams, and is frightened of actually FULFILLING them, right? Right!
So here’s what I’m planning on doing on this blog:
1. Find the best travel resources and information for solo travelers. The more I know before I go, the less unknown there is to fear.
2. Move towards being a digital nomad, so I can support myself during my travels. How? A combination of passive income, blogging, and online work.
3. Talk about all of this, plus more, with all of you. And you can talk to me about your own fears and ways to get over them, too! I want this blog to be a support network for wannabe and soon to be solo female traveler-entrepreneurs!
