In the fall of 2021, I made the best decision of my life and moved to Madrid by myself. I had never been to Spain before, and only had a very basic understanding of Spanish. The idea of traveling alone can be daunting at first – but it’s absolutely life-changing. Life is too short to always wait for others before you start your adventure. I made some incredible friends, learned Castilian Spanish, and explored all over Europe. This blog is dedicated to that experience. How to stay safe as a female solo traveler, what I wish I had known when I first got started, the biggest surprises and culture shocks, and my travel recommendations. I hope you enjoy!
