I get heaps of emails everyday from travellers all over the world planning their adventures – both for the first time and the next stint on the road – asking for advice and tips…and I do my best to answer them all as quickly as I can.
There’s a select few though that I feel I can’t really help out much with – and that’s people asking for female specific advice.
Despite my lovely curls and less than macho man appearance I’m still a dude and there’s certain aspects of life on the road I can’t really comment on or draw upon my personal experiences!
Questions like “is it safe to travel in XXXXX as a solo female” being one of the main ones.
And given nearly 60% of my readers are female I’ve decided that I need to cater for your girls a bit more and help you out – so I’ve decided to bring in some help on the matter!
So I’d like to introduce Erinn – this lovely Californian surfer chick has been bouncing around the globe for a while now and has just finished an epic stint through Central America (something I’m insanely jealous of!) and we recently caught up in Byron Bay for a week.
Over beers and beach walks I asked if she’s be awesome enough to start contributing to the blog and bring in some female perspective and she was awesome enough to agree!
So girls – Erinn is now at your disposal and she’s going to be putting together some awesome blogs, bringing some diversity to the site and doing her best to pass on some female related goodness.
To get everything kick started I thought I’d ask all the lovely ladies if they had any questions you want answered about female travel – it can literally be anything!
Places you want to go
Worries and fears
Any girly stuff I totally can’t answer!haha!
Just chuck your questions in the comments below and she’ll be putting together an ongoing series of posts to help calm your worries and help inspire you to take the leap into your next adventure!
And don’t worry guys the site wont suddenly be filled with talks about hair products, periods and shoes….oh no no no – Erinn is game for some crazy adventures so she’ll be sharing heaps of that goodness too!
Whether its sculling beers at Oktoberfest in Germany, hiking in Switzerland, volcanoe boarding in Nicuragua, chilling with kangaroos in Australia or paddling out for a surf she’s way more than just a pretty face!
Pretty stoked to see what she brings to the site!
