About the author


  1. Traveling and dating? Count me in. I was fortunate to solo travel across Europe exploring and meeting beautiful people, actively allowing myself to love and be loved. I would describe myself as very charismatic, the life of the party and open minded! The opportunity to experience life’s simple luxuries in the realm of other cultures and with people I have never met- truly excites me. I used Bumble as a tool to meet men in different cities but also connect with women because I had a hard time making friends in the hostels as not many women travel alone.
