Sharing my adventures

Overlanding alone as a woman is not an easy task, searching for safe campgrounds, avoiding lonely roads or just parking on the beach for a coffee.

I will do my best to share locations that I believe are safe-r for women and hopefully a tip to two about how I camp, cook & spend my time on the road.
