About me

Travel blog about me image

Hi! My name is Jasmine.

I caught the travel bug young and haven’t looked back since

I was born into an expat family. My first steps were on a flight from Beijing to Gold Coast, and I took my first independent trip to New York when I was 18. Since then, I’ve been off on my own, trying out this solo female travel thing.

I travel to push myself out of my comfort zone. I travel for growth and to become a more compassionate human being. And I travel to eat (a lot).

It’s scary (sometimes really scary), uncomfortable (a lot of the time), and also so worth it. 

I live for the moments I feel in awe of a brand new place. When I’m 1000 miles away from my comfort zone, with the overwhelming feeling of “holy sh*t, I made it here”.

I really, really love cats (even though I’m super allergic). I hate flying. Dumplings are my favourite food. And I choose the beach over the mountains any day.

I’m here to share itineraries, travel stories, and solo female travel tips.

Thanks for being here! I hope you join me on this journey ✈️
