Hi, I’m just going to do a quick introduction of myself, to tell you a bit about myself and what I do as a solo female traveler. Well, I’m half Thai and half Icelandic.
I was brought up in Iceland and I’ve done lots of solo trips since I was 12 years old when I started first going out to the south coast of Iceland to work as a farmer. So from there, I expect I took it a bit further and I wanted to go beyond the farm, and I decided to go abroad. I decided to go to Luxemburg when I was 18 years old to be an au pair. Then I thought, ok, I want to stay a bit longer abroad somewhere and live somewhere else to start a new chapter in a new country. So I moved to London and I did my degree in London and graduated from there. During my studies, I travelled all over Europe and visited countries in the Middle East and Southeast Asia. And then, after my graduation, I moved to Lisbon. So I have gotten this taste for traveling. Even though I did like my job, I knew I couldn’t keep my job much longer as I really loved travelling so much, and then I decided to leave my job.
I left my job and became a pirate in the Atlantic Ocean for about a few months. I sailed to some of the amazing places in the Atlantic, around the islands, like Canary Islands, Madeira Islands, Azores and I’m still on that journey. It’s been 2 years and I still go to the boat once every few weeks, and in between, I stay either in Iceland, Thailand or in Europe, if I get some invitations to stay with my family.
So, that’s my life. Naturally, I have to rethink about my strategy about how I’m going to have a job and how I’m going to fund all these trips and to make all the money. I realized that I could do internet marketing, and I used internet to make my income online, which is now triple from my monthly salary that I used to have with my job. So, obviously, that’s been great. That’s not just about money, but about the freedom that I was after. So, that’s who I am as a solo female traveler.
Technically, I don’t sail on my own. I don’t think it’s very safe, so I got my skipper. However, I do so many trips on the Islands, and they are all solo trips. Up until that point, I also did lots of things on my own. So, I definitely have a lot of things to share about solo traveling. So, if you want to know more about myself, or what I do, you can contact me below. I’d be happy to get to know you and I am really looking forward to seeing more members in this community and to make friends around the globe. Thank you, bye bye!
