Big adventures start with little solo travel tips ...

Remember: solo traveling is something which will bring you more than you might think! And since big trips start with little tips, you’ll find many tips and tricks I used myself during my travels and my photography journey, on this solo travel blog. I tested the backpacking life in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. I hope that you’ll get some help and inspiration to start your next solo trip… and maybe a new passion for photography! See you on the blog!
