How We Help

Vision & Intention Setting

Transformation doesn’t happen on its own. Dig deep into what you want to get out of your trip, identify potential stumbling blocks, and set yourself up for the transformative experience you yearn for.

  • Define your goals and set intentions

  • Identify decision making criteria to ensure your trip plan reflects your goals, timeframe, and budget

  • Design a framework to ensure you get the most out of your trip

Logistical Support

Learn how to prep like a seasoned pro. Create structure, while leaving time for magic and mystery! Research destinations, plan an itinerary, make a budget, pack well, prep for departure, & more.

  • Learn how to go beyond traditional guidebooks to find unique experiences

  • Organize an itinerary that reflects your goals and leaves room for wandering

  • Create a personalized, customized packing list

  • Organize the nitty gritty — visas, mail forwarding, travel insurance (or not), electronics, cell phone coverage, and more!

Hi, I’m Kat.

My love of solo travel began 13 years ago with a study abroad trip to Italy. I’ve since traveled in 30+ countries on four continents; including a six months stint in Turkey, four months backpacking through SE Asia, and a solo camping road trip through eight U.S. states.

I’ve felt the incredible impact solo and self-guided travel has had on my life, and I love sharing that with fellow women who yearn to live a more fulfilled, vibrant, confident, and connected life!

Your best guide is inside you.
I’m here to help you listen to her.

What I Do

I’m not here to tell you where to go, or what to do. I’m here to share what I’ve learned about HOW to travel. How to travel well, and with intention. Anyone can go on vacation. But if you’re looking for a richer, deeper experience, if you want to use travel to heal, grow, or transform — that doesn’t happen by accident. Travel is an investment of your time, money, time off of work, and energy. I’m here to help you maximize that investment and set yourself up for an unforgettable first time solo experience.
