Who is the Travelerette?


Hello, and welcome to Travelerette! I am here to provide humorous travel tips for the solo female adventurer! I hope that I can motivate you to get out there, see the world, learn something, and have a sense of humor about it all.


My travel philosophy can be boiled down to these principles:

  • Always have a sense of humor, especially about yourself.
  • Choose up to five places you simply must see each day (tourist attractions, restaurants, shops, whatever) and leave the rest of the time to explore and meander.
  • Stick to one neighborhood per day so you’re not running around like a lunatic and have time for random adventures.
  • Always write down at least one thing you learned after each attraction you visit and each meal you eat.
  • Say yes to new experiences, unless you think someone is trying to murder or assault you. Say no to being murdered.Travelerette

Why should you listen me? Well, I have a great many useful skills. Here are just a few of them:

  • I am a native New Yorker.
  • I don’t know how to drive or ride a bicycle. You might think that’s not a skill, but I’ve gotten very good at exploring the world without either of those things, so I can share those tips with you.
  • I speak English extremely well.
  • I speak French very well.
  • I speak Japanese very poorly, but I can read hiragana and katakana.
  • In four years time I have traveled in 6 continents, 26 countries, and 81 cities.
  • I collect photos of ice cream and cats.
  • I eat everything and that includes natto, grasshoppers, and chicken feet.

My next travel goal is to visit all 50 states (and DC) in five years, even if I have been to a state before. So far I am in Year Two and I have visited:

  • New York
  • Florida
  • Louisiana
  • Texas
  • Virginia
  • North Carolina
  • South Carolina
  • Georgia
  • Alabama
  • Pennsylvania
  • New Mexico

If you have any Must-Dos in the United States, please share them with me! I look forward to hearing from you! I’m sure we’ll have a great time exploring the world and making each other smile.

XOXO Travelerette

    I love your travel philosophy, and the photos you shared here reflect your sense of humour, haha!

    As an american, you’re quite a food adventurer, having ate grasshoppers and chicken feet. As an Asian, we have our own delicacy, and I can attest that chicken feet is indeed delicious, my favorite!
