Today's episode comes from a listener of the Show. She is travelling to Europe during the Autumn time and would like to know what items of clothes to take...

I often change at least 2 pairs of clothes on daily basis here in KL. Should i do the same there? Should i bring 1 pair clothes per day? Should i consider doing laundry? This is my first time solo travelling and I'm a mother of 2. Will be away from my kids. Im super excited but at the same time super scared. Love from KL

64: Travel regrets; staying in your comfort zone when travelling

64: Travel regrets; staying in your comfort zone when travelling

July 4, 2019

Travel is about continuously pushing yourself out of your personal comfort zone and becoming the traveller you want to be. Female travellers tend to stop after the first hurdle of booking their trip. 

I still push myself now, even after all the travel that I have personally completed.

But I love doing it, it helps me grow as a traveller and I get to experience new things all the time... I'm pushing myself in my upcoming trip by travelling with my boyfriend and his friends (and girlfriends!)...

Listen now to stop this travel regret happening to you!

60: Myth-busting; You have to be brave to travel as a solo female traveller

June 5, 2019

Being brave and going travelling go hand in hand. BUT you do not need to be 100% brave to go! Not even close to it. All you need is a bit of courage and know the reason why you want to do it. 

 

Having the fear to go travelling is empowering. Just use that fear in the right way and you will live your travel dreams.

58: What I do as a solo female traveller to get a free trip

May 23, 2019

After my recent trip to Dublin, I came home refreshed, recharged and ready for action...

Then I got an email from a couple who responded to an advert I posted 2 years ago... Yes 2 years ago, about house sitting and dog sitting!

It was one of the most amazing houses I've ever stayed in, and had 360 degree views of the English countryside. It was idyllic and the perfect getaway for a solo female traveller like me!
