My name is Emma. I graduated from law school in 2016, and I spent August and September of that year traveling west around the world. Over 47 days, I went from Boston to Japan, Singapore, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Finland, Hungary, Croatia, Scotland, England, and Iceland before landing back in Boston.

This blog is a mix of stories and photos from that trip and more recent trips I’ve taken, as well as practical advice based on my experiences on over a dozen solo trips in over a dozen countries. With posts on everything from packing lists and safety advice to step-by-step instructions on how to choose the best hostel, I hope you will find this blog helpful when the time comes to plan YOUR next adventure!
