Heyyo! I’m Rita, a funky, free-spirited, (often forgetful) writer and world-traveler.9E5C4DEB-FC8A-479B-A1ED-3A44A272F1ED

In this blog I share my experiences as a solo, female, budget traveler in the hopes that people will think again, if they don’t think they have what it takes to travel the world. Believe me, you don’t have to be an epic hero to venture across the globe, I am much closer to being a Clark Griswold than an Odysseus.

Click around and you will find;

  • Colorful stories describing my escapades and mishaps
  • Individualized city, country, and regional travel guides
  • Photos galore
  • All the tips and tricks I learned along the way
  • My poetic stylings
  • And much more!

Oh I should probably mention, I like to pepper in puns to spice things up. So call me Hootie, because if you hold my hand, I’ll take you to the promise land.

This blog has been brought to you by; countless moments of triumph and technologically-induced tears, thoughtful contemplation, litters of coffee, unguarded truth, ravenous creative spirit, and unabashed fearlessness. Enjoy!
