"The one who solo travels."

Tips & Tales.

Hey you! If you started your Solo travel on
      Poudre d'Escampette?


Ubud, Indonesia


Meet Poudre d'Escampette.

I am made of photography, stories from the road and a good dose of passion. My name is Ophélie, a Frenchie on solo travel. I left Europe after my studies in marketing two years ago. With no plan, only 2.000€  and one idea – to backpack Australia on a Working Holiday Visa… solo.  And it’s how Poudre d’Escampette started. This travel photography blog is about sharing my travel tips and my addiction for adventure. To help you explore countries on your own… as a curious and conscious  traveller.


First solo trip? Working holiday in Australia? Ask me for travel tips!

A little voice in your head telling you to go solo to Australia on a Working Holiday? To Asia? I heard the same. And I was a bit (a lot?) scared, too.

You see, I am solo traveler, like you. I know how intimidating it it can be to start solo travel. Hit me a message on Une Poudre d’Escampette for any question you have about Working Holiday in Australia or solo travel in Asia. I can speak French, German or Spanish if you prefer!
